My baby girl, 16 year old Daughter*4, played the part of Gabriella Montez in "High School Musical" for their.......High School Musical! The performances were before Thanksgiving, and I was involved with that and haven't been on the blog since!
My daughter is on the right of the picture. Her best girlfriend was asked to play the part of a female basketball player because they needed more "singers" on the "team". She did a great job with the guys. They do lots of things together. They sing and laugh and play volleyball and do what teenager girls do. They love each other like sisters...which is nice for my youngest to have a "sister" that lives near her... And I have fun with them. She calls me Mom E. since that is who I am!
I was privileged to be the Stage Mom. I helped with things from decorations, to applying make up. It was a great time for everyone. Some of these kids I have known for most of their lives, but I was able to get to know more of her friends better. It was a blast! She has lots of good influence friends, the kind a Mom likes! It was a great group of kids with a variety of backgrounds, some of them probably would not have gotten to know each other if they had not been in the musical, but they were all happy they were in it together, just like the musical talks about. They will be friends for life now.
Hearts to you,
