School of Life Performance

For the spring session of Little Lambs (kids choir at church) the kids got to open the School of Life performance and sing a song with the big kids half way through the musical.  Ashley was SO excited to perform with the "big kids" on the stage in the "sankshiary" (sanctuary).  The kids were so cute as they opened the show signing and singing, Jesus Loves Me, He's Got the Whole World and This Little Light of Mine.  I was impressed to see 30 3-5 year olds know all of the words and motions, it was adorable!  They also sang a cute song about bugs with the big kids.  That was Ashley's favorite part.  I was so amazed at how confident Ash was on the stage, that sort of thing has always made me nervous.

Jason and I were proud of Ashley for doing so well in her 3 months of practice and the big finale, so we decided to take her out for a treat.  We went to Claim Jumper and before we got in we told her she could pick any dessert she wants.  We had to wait for a table for a few minutes and while we were waiting Ashley found the dessert case and asked a million questions about each one.  When we sat down the waiter came over and asked what we wanted and Ashley started describing what she wanted.  I just started to crack up because our pint sized daughter wanted the chocolate eclair!  The waiter looked like his eye balls were about to fall out of their sockets and he looked at us like we were crazy.  When the dessert arrived Ashley giggled with excitement as she eyed the football sized eclair covered in chocolate and whipped cream (her favorite!)  After about 6 bites she was done and left mom and dad with the monumental task of trying to make a dent in the dessert.  It was a special night.
