Last night we had our first wonderful big thunder storm for summer. It was glorious - rain pouring down in buckets accompanied by lightening and thunder. I was helping at the grade 0 class getting 22 5/6 year olds ready for revue - make up, hair etc, and then the rain came filling the little people with some additional adrenaline on the already filled little bodies. But is was such fun getting them ready, laughing as we rushed them through the rain to the hall and watching them backstage performing. I am amazed at how independent these little ones are - how they know exactly where to be, what to do and where to go. I was also taken by the little gentlemen our boys are - after rushing through the rain the kids were all a little chilly waiting under the canopies to go on stage. 10 of the little boys (including Mr C) have towels as props for their number and soon enough they each had a towel wrapped around a cold little girl and none on themselves.
We are hearing great things about the revue and I am totally looking forward to seeing it tomorrow.
