We'll All Have Tea!

Wow, I've blogged for five straight days in a row... I don't think this has ever happened!

So, today's post is about how Isabella and her friend Olivia decided to recite a poem called, "Polly Put the Kettle On" in our library's annual summer talent show. It was a really simple and short poem about two girls putting on tea.

My favorite thing about this experience was that it was completely Isabella's idea and both of the girls' drive that made it happen. I was secretly hoping we'd be on vacation, so we could eliminate this from our already crazy summer schedule. (I'm horrible.) But this is her second year reciting a poem in the talent show, and I keep hearing her brainstorm about what she is going to do in the talent show next year, so I have a feeling I should just plan on this being an annual thing. And really, I'm glad she likes to do these things. It's a great experience to get up in front of a large group of people and share a talent. And my, they looked awfully cute in their aprons and matching skirts that my friend Jen made.

It was especially fun that so many of our neighborhood friends participated in the talent show with their serious magic trick skills and beautiful singing voices. I love these kids. Every day I'm grateful to live in such a fabulous neighborhood loaded with best kind of people and great friends.

So, without further ado, here are some photos of the girls before we headed over to the library, and then some of them waiting for their turn to perform and also setting up their tea table.  I didn't take many pics during their performance because I was videoing... I'll add that video to this post eventually!
