|Amara with her congratulations flowers. Instead of purchasing a cut bouquet, we used the same amount of money and bought flowers she could plant and that would last a longer time.|
This year, the Missoula Children's Theater came to Roosevelt for their annual performance. Tryouts for Pinocchio were held on Monday, and then practices were held all week, with 2 performances of the show on Saturday. Amara and Lily both tried out, and Amara got a part as a magical toy soldier in the workshop Pinocchio was created in. They didn't have a part for Lily this year, but that was okay because she got to watch the performance with us this time and enjoy the show from the audience. She had such a good attitude and maturity about not making the play, something I wasn't expecting, but something I was very proud of her for.
After the play, they had a photo call and let parent snap photos of their kids.
Good job, Amara! You marched out on stage like a perfect toy soldier and sang,
"Now, ropes and twine and strings are fine
for puppets made of knotty pine (or naughty pie).
They're not special, no sir-ee,
for in this show the star, the star is ME!"
