You thought this was going to be some end-of-the-year tribute to Addie's and Jayne's teachers right?! WRONG! This is a tribute to Addie's 'Up With Kids' Director, Miss Lacey. She is a golden star!!!!! First of all, she knew how to handle Jayne at the beginning of the year, until Jayne quit. Secondly, Miss Lacey knew how to put the kids in their place and still be nice about it. Third, she was so animated that Addie would go home and act like she was Miss Lacey. Fourth, she is as cute as punch and taught these kids a TON about performing!!!!!! And you should have seen the shoes she was wearing. Can I say "HOT!!!!!!" (Ok. I couldn't resist the pic of her shoes. And this pic doesn't do justice. Just look behind Spencer.)
The play that they did was "Enchanted..starring YOU!' and it was so cute. Addie was The BEST Eeyore ever! (Am I biased?!) We taught her how to kind of 'sulk' out her lines like Eeyore would have. And she did it. She was a hit!
The funniest part was after the play, I had both Jayne and Addie crying. Addie was crying because she loved Up With Kids so much and she was going to miss Miss Lacey. Jayne was crying because she quit in December and didn't get a trophy (actually an Oscar) after. It was a good lesson for Jayne to learn...stick it out and you will be rewarded. And I told Addie that she will be coming back in the fall. Just enjoy the break.
This is Addie's friend Lauren. She LOVED Enchanted maybe even more than Addie did. Let's just say that 'Up With Kids' was right up their ally!!!
Thanks to the family for coming. Sorry about the directions. And just think....only a year until we can do it again!
