Being a small town, everyone finds themselves often wearing many hats. The children are no exception. A baseball game was also taking place that night in the field next to the school. And you guessed it. Some of the children in the talent show were also on the baseball team. The program was adjusted as needed so the kids could perform and then run back out and finish their game. Only in small town USA...
These kids performed their hearts out. They cheered each other on, no matter what the talent. They were behind each other, lock stock and barrell. It was one of the most heart warming events I have ever attended. Go kids!
I am going to leave you with a couple of videos. I'll have to admit I did not come prepared, tripod in hand. So the handheld camera is not as stable as I'd like, but this biased Grandma will tell you these little numbers will leave you with a smile on your face.
In this short video our little Anna is the pig-tailed pixie in purple on the right.
Our sweet Cara sang her heart out. I'll have to admit to have been blown away by her performance. She had us all in tears as she sang You Can Have Me in her clear twelve year old voice. If her smile doesn't melt your heart, nothing will.
I have to include this little guy singing Rainbow Connection. Ol'
Kermit the Frog would have been mighty proud of him. I thought he was the sweetest, bravest Kindergartner on the face of the earth. I'm not sure who he belongs to, but he belonged to the crowd that night.
Thanks to all of the children for a wonderful evening of fun and talent!
