The Three Piggy Opera

Seth made his singing debut on Tuesday evening in the first grade performance of The Three Piggy Opera. As you can see from the picture, he wasn't necessarily thrilled to be in the chorus. Poor little guy, along with his sister, has been sick since the weekend. He didn't attend school on Monday, so he missed the dress rehearsal for the school. He wasn't feeling that great Tuesday evening, but he seemed excited about the play.
For several weeks, he had been singing the songs and doing the movements. He would turn bright red and smile an embarrassed smile when I would watch him. I was hoping he would do great and he did, although he was definitely embarrassed!

As we waited for the show to begin, Stella became restless and fussy since she was not only sick, but it was her bedtime. I had to hand the camera over to Joe and go stand with Stella on the side. As soon as the music started, Stella quieted down and became interested in what was going on. The kids began to walk out to the stage. When Seth walked out, he was trying to hide his piggy ears with his hands, and looked very frightened! He saw me, and I smiled encouragingly at him. He grinned and turned red. When the chorus began, he looked around and finally began singing and reluctantly doing his movements. There were many moments where he just stood there not singing at all. Everytime he would steal a glance at me, I smiled, and gave him the thumbs up and he would grin too. Stella loved it, and clapped happily and pointed at him, saying, "Seth!" The play was probably the cutest thing I've ever seen!!!
