This week The Gallery from Tara over at Sticky Fingers is all about Children.
Tara uses some great adjectives that come to mind when we think of our children like: funny, adorable, fantastic, cheeky, heartwarming and heartbreaking etc.
These are certainly some of the adjectives that come to my mind when I think of my fabulous WiiBoy!
He is of course my initial choice of candidate for this week's meme.
I could show you a picture of him as a baby, or as he is now and talk about how proud I am of the amazing young, sometimes mature and sometimes hilariously silly boy- tween that he has become. He really is my amazingly fantastic WiiBoy!
However, the theme is Children..... plural.
Given the week that's in it I have decided to share a photo (that's already on facebook) of my Panto children with you. My opening dancers...
Aren't their costumes lovely? This is what our wonderful Wardrobe department can do on a low-cost budget.
Actually, make that a no-cost budget!!
Here's another one (hey...it's a Gallery, right?) of most of the 170 children involved in this year's panto which opens in two nights time. oops...nervous tummy flip just kicked in!
In this photo they are all sitting down to learn their Finale Medley......
Let this post be in celebration of all the children (including WiiBoy) involved in this years panto.
All of Tara's adjectives apply here......and more, believe me!!
They are amazing though and this weekend is their opportunity to be part of a team, the very big Team Panto.
It's a time to enhance their self-esteem, to create team spirit on a large scale and to let a budding interest in the world of Musical Theatre wash over them and go forth with them to Secondary school and beyond.
I ask you, what other Primary school do you know of that offers this opportunity to the Children and has done so for the last 15 years?!
It is now a time for them to get up on that stage and SHINE.
And SMILE too.....of course! Please, please SMILE!!
And finally right about know is the time for all adults involved, all adults in the school and in the whole community to remember what our Panto is all about.......
