He did beautifully, of course.
Cass's primary and first grade mixed class has thirteen children in it (and you thought I was kidding when I said a tiny school, right?) and they all lined up on the stage on bleachers, most of them pulling horribly stretched smiles that grimaced how freaked out they were to see an auditorium full of people looking at them.
C even helped introduce the song (It's a Barney song, whispered one of the mums next to me) and they started out:
If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops
Oh what a rain it would be
Sit-ting outside with my mouth open wide
There's a little girl in Cass's class that really got into the song and stretched her mouth open like a baby bird, waiting for the manna to drop in, swishing her skirt with her hands back and forth.
If all of the snowflakes were candy bars and milkshakes.....
Tomorrow is his solo. He sings about a train. And as he explains it, the song is a round: There's a place where each of us is silent and listens to the other people!
He's stoked. I'm ecstatic that it wasn't a horrible experience and he might like to do this again.
If all of the sunbeams were bubble gum and ice cream......
No pictures. We weren't allowed cameras in the theatre. Tomorrow, though, I'm going to try and get a few pictures of Cass and his train buddies after the performance.
