Born Performer

Today was Emily's last day of school. We attended her Spring Kindergarten program, which was so cute, summarizing many of the things they had learned throughout the year. Each child had a small part to say, and many of the children had to have help with their parts. We had worked with Emily to help her memorize her part, and Dave helped her practice saying it like a poet would recite it. The little boy before Emily said a couple of sentences about the Statue of Liberty. Then it was Emily's turn, so here's the video of our little performer....... (turn up the volume)







I love the expression shown in reciting this poem. Since she was very small, Emily has been a natural when it comes to performing in front of people. You did a great job today, Emily. We love you!

She is such a smart, beautiful girl! Watch out in a few years!!! :) I just can't believe how big she is getting. I keep thinking back to when I left on my mission and she was still not born yet! That seems like yesterday....

Apparently it wasn't... :)

I was so impressed!! She recited that so well. We should have a talent night at the reunion and we can all see her in person!

Great job! She really is a natural. She has always been very smart and mature for her age. I can't believe she's done with kindergarten already!

Those are some pretty fancy words for such a little girl! She did a great job!

What a great job! It sounds like public speaking won't be a problem for her in future years :)

Great Job Emily!! She really is a born performer. I remember when she was sealed to both of you at the Temple. She knew even then that she was the princess of the day and she acted like it. No doubt in her mind who she was.
