|Carter's class on stage, ready to sing!|
Elise loved watching the kids and clapped after each song. It wasn't until Carter was on the stage that she really lit up. Carter was the line leader for the day since it is his birthday tomorrow. The minute he walked out on stage Elise started pointing at him. It took him a little while to see us, but once he did he smiled and waved at us. I had given him the option of wearing his snowman shirt or his button up dress shirt and he picked the snowman shirt. He looked so adorable up there with his red pants and boots on. I just couldn't stop smiling. Once they started singing he was all business. He sang, not loud enough that I could distinguish his voice from the other kids but I could see his mouth moving, and did all the actions with the songs. I was so proud to see him really participating. The girl beside him was dancing around, adding her own movements, and even got down on the floor at one point but that didn't phase him. As they finished each song Elise would say, "gee" for again and desperately said, "gee, gee, gee," as Carter's class walked off stage. I took her out of the carrier after that and she sat on my lap and watched the next class sing while clapping along. She didn't even try to slide off my lap. Ty needed to head back to work so we slipped out before the last class sang. Carter's class was sitting in the entryway waiting to give their parents presents. Carter started giggling the minute he saw us and I was so excited to give him a hug and a kiss. I didn't think we'd get to see him after the program as we'd been informed they would go back to their room immediately following their portion of the program. It was a nice surprise. They had cookies and coffee out for the parents and Elise was very happy to nibble on a chocolate chip cookie. Every day I drop Carter off at school I am so proud of how well he does and every day I pick him up I am so thankful for his teachers and the wonderful school he is a part of. I'm so glad we found such a wonderful place for him to begin his educational journey!
