Alice in Wonderland

When choosing an elementary school for Deacon there were a variety of things (yes, that's the technical term) I was looking for... being taught another language was pretty much at the top of this list.  I imagined he would learn Mandarin or Spanish- but here he is, at the most amazing school I can imagine, learning French... a language I probably considered for him as much as I considered Russian, lol.  

Anyway... come to find out, French is a pretty neat language- and hearing a bunch of kids (ranging in ages from 3 all the way up to 8th grade) is an awesome experience.  These kids rock it.  Madame Caro puts on a show every year as part of French Culture Week- and this year she chose Alice in Wonderland... she's been planning for this show for a year now... and when she learned my mom knew how to sew (well), my mom was put to work- and was thanked, very nicely, for her efforts today by being brought up on stage.

This show was absolutely amazing... was it the most amazing production of Alice in Wonderland I had ever seen?  Um, no.  But words cannot express how neat it was to see these kids up on stage with such confidence, performing a show almost entirely in French.  I am so proud of our boy... 

This picture below speaks volumes... the kindergarten class sat through the entire 1 hour and 45 minute production- and they were good the entire time.  Such a good class.

The look on Jocelyn's face kills me... she is so dramatic about this song!

My mom being brought on stage and given flowers as a "thank you" for all the help she did with the costumes.
