Everybody wants to be a cat!!

Emma has been enrolled in a musical theater camp all week. It's been a fantastic experience and an amazing confidence building activity. Chris and I are so proud of her.



Each night, she's had lines and songs to memorize in preparation for the next day's practice. She's been diligent with her homework and I think our entire house had the soundtrack to Aristocats memorized by the end of the week.



On Friday, the students performed their shortened version of Aristocats. No costumes. No props. Just hard work and lots of singing. Chris and I were just beaming and Josie kept yelling out "Look! There's MY EMMA!"







Afterwards, we celebrated with ice cream in honor of our special daughter. Well done, Emma. Well done.

Great Job Emma! I love the look on her face in the first picture -- sure mom and dad are proud of her, but she's pretty proud of herself, too!

Please let us know if Emma is going to be in another kid-friendly production, as we'd love to come and see her and cheer her on.

And I bet she loved hearing her little sister call out to her on stage (well, it might have been a little embarrassing too, but I'm sure it also made her day!).
