The Little Donkey's Easter Journey

I know, I know, the Easter have passed long time ago but I did not have time to post this till now hehehe.  These photos were taken in April 14 when the  first grade and  kindergartners have their  Spring Play at school.  
The play is entitled "The Little Donkey's Easter Journey" and  it is  in musical form which was  so much fun to watch!  
The play was held at the school's big gymnasium adjacent to the classrooms.
The third graders were also involve as they sang some songs during the play.
It's a joy to watch these kids enjoy what they do!
I am so proud of our son for being so natural  in performing in front of a big audience.
I think that it is very important for us parents to show our support during our children's formative years.  It plays a major role in boosting up their confidence.
I always ask my husband to take a day off from work to witness  this kind of event with me.  It makes me very emotional when I set alone  watching  our kids perform.  Please enjoy the  sort videos I have recorded with my camera.

I'd like to thank Mrs. Bernardi, the music teacher and the teachers Mrs. Gain and Mrs. Runkel for their patience  and dedication in having this play possible for us to watch.  These kids gave up  some of their recess time in order to  practice and learn the songs.

Would You Dance or Would You Play and Instrument

Giving our children the freedom to choose is the right thing to do as parents. It might be early for them but giving them a little freedom also helps them in developing their real talent. When we came back from South Korea, we let our daughter try to take dance lessons but she did not like it so we let her try the piano lessons instead and she loved it. Before we bought the piano that we have at home, we looked at resources online like the musicians friend and compared prices. We ended up buying a re-tuned piano as it was the price range that we could afford. So if you are wondering if your child like what they do for their hobby or whatever they are into, ask a question like "Would you dance or would you play an instrument?"
