Okay, so I wasn't *that* blond anymore by the time I was 9 1/2, but I had that wispy hair and that love of all things traditional...just like Elise apparently does.
She had her final elementary school program and looked adorable, sang her heart out, played her recorder magnificently, and even teared up at the end...just like her mama.
I could barely see her through most of the program, except for between some people's heads through my zoom lens, but she was completely in to it and is, as you can see, completely enamored by her beloved music teacher. She will miss Mrs. Dean!!
