Last night we went to the Grade 3/4 Concert to watch Climber and his friends. This concert was so much better than last year's! (Which although I didn't say at the time, I absolutely hated) But this year, every class, every child did a great performance. The theme was Inventions, featuring 5 important ones: Steam Engines (Chattanooga Choo-choo /Locomotion) The Telephone (Hanging on the Telephone / Ring Ring) Photography/Cameras (Video Killed the Radio Star) and Space Travel (Space Oddity/ Walking on the Moon). Our class were the cavepeople who invented The Wheel. Their song -of course- was Proud Mary.
I was chief costume-mistress this year for our class. You see what can happen if you decide to take up sewing? Don't say I haven't warned you. I've spent the last fortnight scouring the fabric shops for cheap polar fleece, crushed velvet and animal print lycra, after which I sewed all the boys' costumes (17 in all). But they looked ace on the night, so virtue was its own reward.
I felt like Proud Caroline last night.
