An hour and a half after the show started, it FINALLY wrapped up, much to the joy and relief of every parent and grandparent who was forced to attend. If there was an after-school class in Newberg, it was represented at the showcase. There was even an unabashed plug for a new class that would be starting winter session complete with a show of hands for people who MIGHT want to take the class. Kids talked about paintings, danced, acted, sang and "played" (I use that term loosely) guitar and ukele (who knew it's pronounced ookele?). For every high point there was an equally hilarious low point. About halfway through the show Curt leaned over and whispered, "Did we make our parents go to stuff like this?" I couldn't look at my mom cause I knew if I did, we'd dissolve into uncontrollable giggles and one of us would end up crying or wetting our pants or both. 3-year-old-Paige sat perfectly still through the entire performance completely enthralled with each participant which is more than I can say for myself.
So without further ado, I present to you, the mandatory video of our kids doing their thing, so you too, can get a taste of Christmas joy. Happy viewing.
