The performer

Olivia's preschool had its Spring program last night. This involves three separate preschool classes each having their turn standing on the risers and "singing" their selection of preschool songs.

Olivia's class was first. As the tallest kid in class, she always gets to stand in the center of the back row. But don't let that fool you...she was the star for sure. Kid knows what she's doing when it comes to performing. She holds to the cadence and sings loudly for all to hear. In fact, when you play back the recording, hers is the voice you hear.

She makes me laugh so much. Most of their songs have a lot of repetition, as preschool songs often do, so sometimes it is hard to define an end. Especially if you forget which verse you just completed. So, after three verses of the first song, the teacher signaled that it was over. But Olivia wasn't watching, and she started right in on the third verse (again). She was the only one singing for the first few words, but that didn't bother her. She just kept on singing, loud and strong, until the rest of the class joined in.

Kid knows how to barrel through mistakes in a performance. I think that skill may serve her well.
