Preschool Program

Leland had her preschool Christmas program last week. She has been learning the songs for a few weeks. Her favorite being Joy to the World. She was so excited to be singing a song about her, since her middle name is Joy. (She seems to think everybody must know it is about her.)

It was so cute to watch her up there with all the other kids. As many of you know, Leland is quite the singer and enjoys singing for one or two people. So, we expected her to be the same on stage. Not so much. She wasn't scared or embarrassed, but more amazed at all the people looking at her. She would sing a bit, then kind of just stop and look around like, "Whoa, look at all those people looking at me!" Then she would sing some more to show them that she could. Then she wanted to see Chuck to make sure he saw how many people were watching her. (Of course, there were about 40 kids up there, but not in her mind.)

The picture on the right is Leland and her teacher. We were also grateful that my aunt and her foreign exchange student were able to come to the program too.

Leland especially loves her pretty 'Santa' dress that she was finally able to wear out of the house. It is a hand-me-down from my sister that I think my mom bought a few years ago. We have definitely gotten our wear out of it.
