First Grade Seussical

The first grade classes at Joey's school put on a stage production of a "Seussical" which is a medley of Dr. Seuss stories. They did an amazing job, and I'm not just saying that. The set was fabulous, and what these first graders accomplished just blew me away. So many lines for them all to remember, plus choreography . . . it was very impressive.

The photos don't do it justice, but here's part of the set:

And here's Joey in purple - he played Ned in One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and he also made a cameo appearance in The Foot Book.

Michael worked late (but was able to go see the morning production yesterday), so I went with my sister-in-law and Finn, and left Kevin in charge of the three girls at home. I half-jokingly told him that if he put them all to bed, I'd give him a bonus. I did not at all expect him to put them to bed; I put a movie in for them before I left and figured the house would be trashed when I got home. However, when I returned, it was to a very quiet house. Kevin had helped all three girls brush their teeth, made sure they all went potty, read them stories, and had them all tucked into bed just a few minutes before we got home at 7:30. Seriously!
