The school that Grace attends focuses heavily on the performing arts. At the end of the year the school holds a broadway style performance (this is in addition to the four smaller shows during the year) which every child is encouraged to be a part of. This is the first year Grace has participated and she's excited beyond words to be involved in the school's rendition of, "The Music Man".
Since no pictures or filming are allowed the night of the show I took a few today during the rehearsal.....

A handmade dress was in order for this special occasion. This is a picture of the embroidery (from Grace's original drawing) on the apron of the dress.
I think this final picture sums up how everyone, including myself as a chaperon, felt after a nearly five hour rehearsal - just plain over it!
