The Third Grade Play

Prepare the cafetorium!

I am incredibly lucky, because I got to spend a good part of the last week helping with the third grade play.

Tiny Techie performs his signature interpretive dance, “They Joy of Being Two-and-a-Half and Having a Stage to Oneself.”

I had so much fun adding branches to swamp trees, creating cattails, schlepping a stump,

and obtaining fog. Because FOG!

I also did a little last-minute costume creation for my 3rd grader. As in, between performances. My Great Blue Heron needed some new wings.

So we raided my big bin of felt scraps, found the most heron-like colors we had, did some creative piecing, and came up with this:

It would have been a easier if my sewing machine hadn’t quit working, but at least it was felt and easy to hand-sew.

She looked pretty darn cute, I think.  And I’m happy that she was happy with her costume. Scrap project #8/101 complete.

I’m so proud of these kids and their teachers!
