The Concert

This was the fifth school Christmas concert for Danica and the third for JJ. Parents and friends start lining up a half hour before the doors open regardless of the weather. This is so despite the fact that they have four concerts in all: two for JK and SK, and two for grades 1-3. Four presentations, and each is so packed that we worry about getting in. Next year, Danica will move on from her SK - G3 school onto a grade 4-6 school, so we will have to attend separate events in separate locations.

Each class of the dozens performed a song. They were situated on two levels. The lower level, particularly on the left side were pretty well lit. The second level, particularly on the right were poorly lit. Guess where my kids were located?

So, aside from taking the best photos that I could manage of my kids, I took a number of shots of others, partly because I can post them in a local Facebook group where other townies can see their kids.

Let me begin with my kids.

First: Danica beside her friend Teagan about as far away from me as they could get.



Now for Jonathan: he was a trifle closer, but being more in front of me, it was too difficult to isolate him, and I think the surrounding actions work well enough in these photos.




Now for a few snaps of some of the other kiddies.

Those "other parents" must be thrilled with your pictures. The two girls in gold will have a lot of explaining to do. Hysterical !

As always, your photos take me back to when my kids were in school, although there was not a one of them who was as active and engaged as these two. They really are so charming!

Lovely children, but I hope the other parents don`t object to having their children`s faces on the internet.
