Another Fun Performance....

So today was Evan's turn! His class put on a literacy fair today. They have been working on this for a while and for at least 2 months Evan has come home every day saying "Mom are you coming to my literacy fair tomorrow?!".....and then I would find out that it wasnt even scheduled yet. So finally....after months of anticipation, I got to attend it! Evan was so cute, when he walked into the auditorium and saw me and Addison and Soren....he was BEAMING. There is no other way to describe it. He loves to have his parents' adoration and attention and I just get all choked up seeing his smiling face and knowing how happy inside he is.

Anyway, whats a literacy fair you are asking? The kids have been really ramping up their reading over the past few months and they had prepared skits to go along with their favorite books. They sang Songs that they made up and helped compose. And then, all around the auditorium were displays of the artwork and different projects they had done with regard to reading. For example...they made books in a box which was really clever and too difficult to explain here. They also made self portraits of themselves reading a book which was a story that they made up. They designed their own T-shirts based on their favorite book....And my favorite project was their actual book that they wrote. Evan's was titled "My Trip to Kentucky" and he wrote about our trip to Kentucky last summer for a family reunion. It was pretty focused on his cousins and all the love that they have for each other. It was so sweet. The last page was the author description page and it had an actual picture of him on it with facts about him..... "Evan is thoughtful" "Evan is 6" "Evan is Kind"......oh and his favorite snack.... "A Doughnut".
Thanks for inviting me Evan...it was awesome and I love you so much! Here is a little clip of one of their songs.....

Evan seems like such a sweet kid. He also looks like he is tall. Is he? Very creative boy.

Ian did a great job at his recital. I can just tell he is such a smart kid and being musical helps with the brain power too.

And Happy Anniversary (late-sorry)
I enjoyed catching up. Your posts are always fun to read and interesting. And I know what you mean about spring~ We have the same crazy weather here in Show Low. Yesterday it was 58 degrees in the afternoon and by early evening it turned dark, cold and was snowing! Crazy Spring weather.
