You can be sure when your child first enters the education system, you will quickly encounter a lot of firsts.
Their first excursion.
Their first award.
Their first sick bay visit.
Their first bestie.
Their first fight…
Their first, Christmas concert. 🎄🎶
“We’ve got a good number of years of this ahead of us,” I whispered to Hubbie as we lay on the picnic blanket on the school’s lawn this evening.
It was warm, and most of it was before the sudden 20 degree drop in temperature signalling the cool change.
There were Christmas songs… both in and out of key.
Traditional carols and contemporary tunes.
Daggy Christmas jokes: “What do you call someone scared of Santa?”
Oh God I know, they were so bad you had to laugh.
Choreographed kiddy dance numbers and a Christmas raffle draw. The Christmas concert had it all.
But mostly for us, it had our girl, up with the rest of the preps singing “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.”
That’s her before the show, telling me to stop taking pics… can you see?
(That’s okay, you’re not meant to 😂)
It was long, it was windy, and we were hungry… but to be honest, I loved the off-key notes.
The kids dancing off-stage before they walked on to their own show.
The strong change that blew hats and empty water bottles across the oval, cooling us all down.
I even loved the daggy jokes.
I generally love Christmas, and I love how baby girl’s school seems to really love it too.
