watching her tonight at her theatre group just so sweet, she puts it all aside, granted she stands alone until their directed and stuff doesn't initiate conversation with the other kids, yet she is smiling watching the other kids and as she is doing her stuff. she got the part Kate in the play Annie she is in, lines and everything, wow!! So, she copies the dance perfectly as the director is at the head doing it, she feels good in there when she's singing. I'm smiling writing this. She comes out sweaty, her curls tight from jumping around in the dance room, smile on her face. its' very cool. Yes i'm the nutty parent with whom stares through the glass ducking every so often so she doesn't catch me looking. Plays in January, hoping she'll make it up on that stage. I"m staying positive. Its' def. been a good outlet for her. She begins the violin next week, she won school raffle and was one of the ten kids picked to learn it. She gets to take it home she is very excited about that. That's the good stuff, that helps through the bad stuff, and today our kite finally went up yesterday was a no go. Today it sailed so high. I won a spaceship kite at a kite festival.
