Sing, Sing a Song!

Last week Miss Maddy had her last choir concert
as a 7th grader.

After the concert -- Zozo, Maia, Maddy, Gracie
The concert included our Catholic High School
choir and was a benefit for St. Jude's Hospital.
It was so beautiful and hearing their
lovely voices was such
an incredible treat!
All the extra time
and early morning choir practices
paid off!

Bonus for the girls (and boys too) - they were allowed
to wear something besides their uniforms!
No plaid skirts required for the girls!
The girls loved being able to dress up a little.

Gracie and Maddy -- friends since kindergarten!
Maddy and her friend had the same dress though
different colors --
they thought that was so cool!

Maddy and Skyler

One boy evidently didn't get the memo about the requirement
for boys to wear dress pants, long sleeve shirt and a tie as
he showed up in cargo shorts and a polo shirt!
I'm surprised the choir director didn't put him in back,
but he's not too tall, so was right in front!
The little rebel!  ;)

The choir was able to sing once more at the 8th Grade
Graduation Mass.
Last night, the Choir Director
sang at the Graduation.

One of the things I love about 7th grade girls is that they
don't hesitate to give each other big hugs
when they see each other and when they leave again!
It's just the sweetest thing!
The countdown is on . . .
school's out on May 23!

Oh I bet that was a lovely thing to hear! We had our last orchestra concert of middle school last night! I cannot even believe it. I vividly remember the last concert last year and saying goodbye to the 8th graders and I swear it seems like yesterday. How is this happening so fast? I surprised myself by not crying!

Hurry up, summer!
