For Taya's end of the year program, they did a 1st grade play. I knew the "casting" was coming up, so I told Taya to make sure she didn't try out for a part with too many lines since she'd have to memorize them. (aka so I wouldn't be up late every night the last two weeks of school helping her memorize lines.)
So when she came home with a smile on her face saying "I'm Goldilocks! I'm Goldilocks!" I didn't know whether to be thrilled or want to cry. ha ha ha. But I totally underestimated my little girl. She had every single one of her lines memorized in two days flat & then she started showing me her "actions." This play was going to be adorable.
She did an amazing job. She was the perfect Goldilocks. I could watch her play over & over & over again. It was perfection. What a cute bunch of 1st graders.
Mrs. Lenz has been an amazing teacher for Taya. I have my fingers crossed that she'll be Bladen's teacher next year as well. She's done amazing things for Taya who went from reading at a Kindergartner reading level to a 4th grade reading level in one school year. Mrs. Lenz has taught Taya how to love books & I'll be forever grateful for her for that.
Great job Taya. 2nd Grade can't wait for you to conquer it.
