School Concert

Yesterday I attended my grandsons concert......finally got to one. Two of the other grands have theirs at night and I don't care to drive for 1-1/2 hours in the evening....probably I missed those. 
I love these concerts!
The pics below of are the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade choir. 

Choir is an extracurricular activity so these children WANT to sing. Grandson J is in the front row - Santa hat and red striped tie. He LOVES to sing and is so serious about it, and does constantly, drives me nuts.....but I can take it b/c he is only here on the weekend. He was heartbroken when he didn't get a solo part. He is not into sports so I really encourage his singing.
His brother is on the left in the blue shirt and b/w striped tie.

Our surprise, at the end of the concert, was the teachers and staff singing "the 12 days of school".
It was sooooo cute.........
"on the 1st day of school a student said to me 'I lost my mittens', on the 2nd day of school a student said to me 'I'm gonna tell', ......'is the test today?', 'we did that last year', 'he was talking too'."..... and so forth.  We all loved it. 

Friday I have to get up EARLY to get to my granddaughter's concert......nearly a 2 hour drive....oh, why did I say I'd attend the morning program???? Afterward I'm having lunch with my daughter and the other grandma. I can't wait and I think the weather will cooperate too.

Last night was our book club's Christmas party at one of the gal's home. Everyone brings something. Oooooh, such good (and salty) appetizers. Yes, I had a little of everything. (There were no veggies or fruit and woman can not live on sweets alone.) We talked about a lot of stuff, even the book. Before we left our hostess pulled out a paper grocery bag and started filling it up.....with boxes of cookies....everyone who was there baked cookies for me.
Thanks so much ladies!!!!!
Merry Christmas!
God Bless!


  1. Linda, Glad you had some fun watching the kids. I know exactly what you mean about having to drive at night. I am not into night driving . I think all those school concerts should be on a Saturday late morning. So all the g.parents can go. Bless you, xoxo,Susie

  2. Nothing is better than being at the grandkids concerts, and school events. Been the pleasure of my life with my many grandkids. Love the cutie in the front row.

  3. Your grandsons are both so cute, Linda. I love those concerts, too. I have a couple that I hope I am going to be able to make unless I am still coughing like this.

    Hope you are having a great day, Linda. xo Diana

  4. I love it when I can go to my grand's band concert. That is a blessing that your friends made you cookies! I'll be right over.
    Thanks for you comment about my sister. Also, she won't be losing her hair. Not sure about other things.
    Merry Christmas.

  5. I loved attending my daughter's school functions and I look forward to going to my grandson's when he's in school. So glad you could attend your GS's concert and enjoy your GD's.
