Caroline tried out for the first school-wide variety show about a week ago. She had originally wanted to dance and sing to a song from Tangled, but time got away from us and we weren't able to practice enough for her to feel comfortable doing it. Instead, she decided to give it a try singing a Taylor Swift song, which, since she already knows all the words to most of the songs on her latest album, didn't take too much practice. So, she tried out singing Mean; and because parents weren't allowed in the auditorium while the kids tried out, I had no clue how it went. Caroline felt good about it though, so we were proud of her for trying out and pleasantly surprised when she was selected to perform. The variety show was last night and I couldn't be prouder of her for being so brave and performing her heart out. We are so blessed by her school, the way the teachers, families, and school environment inspire the kids and give them the confidence the skills to act, sing, dance, and use all of the creative capacity God has given them.
Here's our little Taylor Swift:
