This event sure does make for an "exciting" April (read busy), with classes Tuesdays and Thursdays to practice their regular routine, and then an extra practice on Wednesday for Peyton's special. Busy or not, we are so blessed to be able to participate in this program.
This year the theme for the recital was Our Town.
This is our kids the evening after the first performance- they were so nervous they didn't eat before hand so they came home and ate their dinner at 10:30 at night!
Felicity, the youngest redhead, getting her hair fixed before the performance. She is a Chef.
Peyton, the only boy, is Diner in the first pictures, and then his special, Highway Patrol. Yep he got the badge and the hat, not the gun or handcuffs though. While I think this is a smart decision, he was a little bummed.
Veronica, the oldest redhead girl, is also in the diner performance with Peyton.
Peyton is the boy in the very front. Rockin his headstand. His dad is so proud.
Justice was not to be outdone... Here he is at Nana and Papa Burke's the second night of the show. He got a sleepover with his cousin Jon. We were very thankful for that!
Timothy- the oldest child in our family (totally kidding :) even got in on the fun. He was a Newsie.
Tim impressing the audience with his awesome headstand!
You may notice the bearded man he is holding up in the sugar bowl, that is our very own Uncle Matt!
As I mentioned, we had some friends and cousins in the performane as well, here are some pictures of their performances.
