Diva Horse

What is that song from Mr. Ed, something about a horse is a horse of course of course, and something about unless it's Mr. Ed. Well, there is another type of horse for a school program. It's a Diva Horse. Princess #1 has turned into a diva of sorts, and last night she was a horse. When I commented about not having ever seen a horse with pink finger and toe hooves, she informed me hers were pink because she was a diva horse. It's kinda hard to tell, but in the first pic here, you can see her ears and mane made of knitting yarn. The second pic is a side view and shows her tail.

We are so pleased with the school that 3 of my grandchildren attend. The kids are happy going there and they are always involved in something. A couple of months ago, Princess #2, and her cousin Superhero were in a program where everyone was bugs. They allow the parents to come up with a costume(nothing elaborate) and it's such fun to see what some of them look like. P#2 was a ladybug, and Superhero was a lightening bug(firefly if you aren't from the South).

P#1 was in last nights program, and it was called, 'The Cheese Stands Along', based on the song, 'The Farmer in the Dell'. There was the farmer, his wife, the nurse, the child, the dog, the cat, the rat and of course the longsuffering Cheese.

Some of the children were dressed as cheese from all over the world. The cutest one was string cheese. The rest of the kids were divided up into farm hands(cowboy hats, plaid shirts, etc) and various farm animals. They all sang, some had lines, and everyone did a great joy. The director introduced the different groups and they were given the opportunity to take a bow. Having this opportunity to be in the spotlight and being praised for a job well done is such a wonderful way to build self-esteem in these young children. I was not only proud of my granddaughter, but of everyone's grandchildren on the stage.

Hope the sun is smiling on your face today. Love one another.
