A proud day in motherhood

UPDATE:
This
link will take you to the page with the article about the kids and the pic of them dancing. My son is the one in the back row with the blue lei around his neck. I am just so proud.

I am such a proud mommy. Ok, don't tell my kids I used the word "mommy", as both of them are teenagers and they'd just die from embarrassment. LOL

Yesterday, both of my kids were in a choir competition. My daughter is in the Jr. Swing Choir, while my son is in a show choir called the "21st Century Singers". This choir has won several awards over the years, had sang the National Anthem at several Denver Nuggests basketball games, and has been to Washington D.C. and on several cruises over the years. It's a huge honor in our little town to be a part of this choir.

Each year, the kids in this choir sing at least one song from some famous musical and this year they did the song "Honey Bun" from the musical South Pacific. The girls in the choir came out dressed in little sailor suits and sang the main part of the song, then went off stage. When they came back on stage, they had the boys in tow, who were all wearing coconut bras, grass skirts, and mop-top wigs. I laughed till my sides hurt.

It was such a proud moment for me to see my 17 year old son dressed like that. Those boys not only went out on stage like that, they sang their little hearts out and hammed it up with everything they had in them. They did an awesome job. They didn't win, but I won't go into that, sore subject. LOL

The kids made the front page of the newspaper and I'm going to blow that picture up as big as I can and give it to him on his wedding day. LOLOLOL

LOL,

Let me see if it's online yet. The paper posts online, so as soon as it's up, I'll add the link.

NICE!! I really wish I could blow up the picture! :P I hope you have a bigger copy for yourself from the print article. :)

Yeah, I wish it was bigger, too. I did get one out of the actual paper, but it's not a whole lot bigger. However, I do have it on film and will be playing it on his wedding day. LOLOLOL

My little buddy. How are you, I've been thinking about you lately. Where the hell have you been?

I don't have a better pick than this right now, but I'll get one in the next few weeks. He'll be in other competitions and I'll actually use my digital camera instead of just letting it sit in my purse while I run the video camera. LOL

I'm so happy you stopped by, I miss you bunches and have some questions for you, but that's not for here. LOL

Love ya babe,
