Hope of America!

Jenny participated in the Hope of America show again this year! It's one of my favorite things to go to. Since the beginning of the school year, Jenny has been going to show choir early in the morning before school starts, two days a week, to learn new songs and singing techniques. Then the morning of May 6, 2009, they joined up with over 35 schools across the county to perform songs for us in the Hope of America show. Every student knows the actions and words to every song and they dress in different t-shirt colors and sit in specific seats so that they display the American Flag. It is amazing!
The show is such an amazing production and I was proud of Jenny for choosing to be a part of it this year. Grandma Z came and sat by me and we soaked in as much as we could. With tears in our eyes, we heard songs about freedoms to V.O.T.E, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., the military, Declaration of Independence, and "This is America" which is always my favorite. On this song, the entire crowd is invited to participate in the actions and WOW. . . it's amazing.
Thank you Grandma for coming to see Jenny perform in the concert again this year. We can always count on Grandma to bring a little something to nibble on like, chocolate covered cinnamon bears (that melted last year because we were literally in the nose bleed section of the seats), M&Ms and licorice. YUM! We even got to go for an ice cream treat this year to "Spoon Me" after the show. As usual, Jenny savored every last bite!

Jenny has some of the cutest friends. We are so grateful for each one of them.
Here are a few of them . . . Meg, Bailey, Jessica . . . We love you!
Thank you for being so wonderful!
