Another Of The Big Three!

It was the best of times, it was the end of Februaryist of times.

One of “The Big Three” on my calendar has come and passed again … like gas … or wind … or farts. It’s also past … or over … or not happening again for another year.

Dance Recital Madness 2011 was a lot like last year and the year before but with different kids … or the same kids, but a year or two older … and with different costumes.

One kindergarten went with a colour theme: all the major colours were represented. Teal was overlooked.

The other kindergarten’s dancers’ costumes were colourful too, but they didn’t represent anything I guess.

For a week or two afterwards I say things like:

– “You were a super Super Ninja Shadow!”
– “I liked the Frog Dancers … a lot!”
– “Hey! Cowboy!”
(enthusiastic imaginary pistol shooting mannerisms accompany this response)
– “You were the best raindrop out of the bunch.”
– “I really thought you were a Mexican!”
– “Next year I’m sure you will get to be a dinosaur.”
– “Nice cartwheel!”
– “I was a tomato when I was your age too!”

I wish I was 4 years old again: I’m sure I’d be the best raindrop.


note: the past “Big Three” are here:

Numata Matsuri 2008 / Numata Matsuri 2009

Dance Recital Madness / Dance Recital Madness: Day 2

double note: I didn’t miss last year’s “Big Three“, I just took worse photos than this year’s … and thought I’d give it a break for a year.


Today #143

Today I dropped the thermometer, but it didn’t get any colder for some reason.

  1. Awwww… They are so cute in their little costumes. I reckon I could dance better than them though. My rendition of Swan Lake would’ve blown them all out of the water…

  2. “I wish I was 4 years old again: I’m sure I’d be the best raindrop.”

    …or at least you’d be the biggest drip!

  3. Hey great share with us all. Glad to meet your post.

  4. Thanks for the comments.

    Tony: I visit 2 kindergartens’ dance recitals: this year was the first time that I heard the same song used at both. It was something about being a happy tomato … or something.

    S. Le: hee hee! I should have saw that one coming.

    timkeen40: thanks for stopping by!

  5. *like*
    I’m sure you know how cute these kids are! Do they sing in English sometimes?

  6. sweetiegirlz: the kids are always cute … and some of their mothers. hee hee!
    At these recitals they just dance. Probably the only English songs they know are the ones I sing when I teach there: Wheels on the Bus, Hello How are you?, 5 little monkeys, 5 little ducks, and assorted other favourites.
