Whitmore's Got Talent!

Last night was the variety show for Rhianna's school. When she first heard about the show she wanted to do something. She thought of several ideas that were talents. Their OMA teacher Ms Joy had just taught them a line dance since it was February and Rodeo time. So Rhianna asked a few of her friends (and their moms) and last night the six of them were the only 1st graders in the show. The girls decided to wear blue jeans or skirts and pink shirts. Then one of the other moms found the pink bandanas and hats. Very cute dancers!

It was a really fun night. There were dances (besides Rhianna's group, we especially liked the Irish step dancers), singing (Rand thought the girl singing Love Song was so pretty he had to take a picture of her), instruments (piano, recorder played with the nose, electric guitar, gu-cheng chinese stringed instrument), hula hooping, skits, etc. There were kids from every grade K-5 performing, but mainly 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. The 5th graders were MCs too and did some of the stage work along with help from several parents. I was helping with the music, so I also want to thank Steve for helping with the boys. They also had free treats at intermission. My friend Corine was the main one in charge of all of this....and it went so well. Enjoy the video!
