This past Thursday night our school held its first Talent Show. Most of the school participated in the show, either as a class or individually.
Shane's class did a cute little number to "This Little Piggy."
This little piggy went to market . . . this little piggy stayed home . . .
this little piggy ate roast beef . . . this little piggy had none . . .
And this little piggy went "wee, wee, wee" . . .
All the way home . . .
It was such a cute song. There were more verses in the song than in the original rhyme. Here's Shane next to his girlfriend, Mary Beth, and his best friend, Colt.
It was such a cute little song and skit. Perfect for 4 year olds.
Of course, the most memorable moment of the skit was in the very beginning . . . when the music was beginning and the children were standing on the stage waiting to begin . . . and my sweet little Shane started moving his hips in a wide circular motion . . . with no one else moving . . . there he was just a gyrating on the stage! The whole audience fell out laughing and Shane just kept on gyrating! Ha! That's my boy!
After the little piggy song, the 4 and 5 year olds did a number together.
I thought Shane did such a great job! He definitely doesn't have a shy bone in his body!
Alex's class did a dance to a cowboy song. They wore cowboy hats and rode on stick horses onto the stage. This picture is little blurry cause they were moving so fast, but Alex is the one in the middle wearing a black tshirt and black hat.
Once they parked their horses, the children did a cute little dance to the song.
Love that little cowboy :)
I wish I could remember the song they danced to . . .
While the older boys were performing, Shane stayed busy on Dave's tablet.
The fourth grade class divided up into boy/girl groups and did a dance/song routine.
The boys did their dance number to "Big Green Tractor".
Zach really got into the dancing. He's actually a very good dancer. I had no idea.
After the girls did their dance routine, the whole class got together and danced and sang to "Footloose".
Zach loved that song. He thought I wouldn't know it . . . . he had no idea that it was first popular during my youth . . . sometimes I feel so old . . . Zach was really getting down . . .
The highlight of the whole performance for me was when Zach and his best friend, Colby, came to the front of the stage and did the "worm" across the stage.
They went back and forth across the stage at least three times!
The program lasted a couple of hours. There were so many wonderfully talented children and adults that performed that night. Some of the skits were hysterical. People sang beautifully that I didn't even know could sing at all.
The program ended with the elementary classes singing a Patriotic medley.
The music teacher actually had the emcee announce that 3 girls (Sammie, Peyton, and Gracie) and 3 boys (Matthew, Colby, and Zach) from the 4th grade were going to sing together. She said that these children's voices were good enough to sing solo, but they were going to sing together. Apparently Zach can sing. I had no idea.
Zach and Alex did such a great job that night. All three boys made us so proud.
The night ended with some of the elementary teachers doing a performance. . . a hysterical performance!
Alex's 3rd grade teacher (the one above in the blue dress and black socks) actually ended their performance by doing the splits on stage! I hate I didn't get a picture of that!
All in all it was a great night for
the Ferrell boys and me!
