Be a Lady

Bria had her 2nd grade program the other night. They did an adorable little show called "Bugz" which apparently schools all over the country do, since Hilary's son has also done it at his school far away from us.

All of the girls had to wear red and black to be ladybugs, and the boys wore camouflage because they were army ants. Everyone had a speaking part, even Bria. I was pretty impressed with how willingly she did her part since she can be very shy about things like that.
But the thing we loved the very most was how she danced her little heart out. The following pictures are from a song all the girls sang called "Be a Lady" and Bria was so into it. I just loved it! She wasn't self conscious at all, and it gives me hope for her shyness levels.

After it was all over she wouldn't let me take her picture because I was embarrassing her. But I took a few anyway....also she was mad because we couldn't go out for ice cream afterward (we usually do after any family member has a performance). I think if she had auditioned for the role of the stink bug with this face, she'd have been a shoe in. :)
This is Bria and her 2nd grade crush, who also happens to be a neighbor. I think he has a crush on her too. He wanted me to take a picture of him, and so finally Bria agreed to actually smile in a picture since it was with him. Too bad they were in such a hurry to get out of there that it's pretty blurry. Cute though, and I like having the memory of them.

  2. She looks so cute! I can not wait, til my girls are in school. I think their personalities really shine through in performances. I was shy and hated them, but I had sisters who always loved performing and stole the show.

    I wish I had some pictures of me and my childhood crushes. I think she will be glad to have it!

  3. Be a lady--- woah-oh-oh....
    BTW, our classes have bug names, like -- Conner's class was the fireflies, then we have butterflies and ladybugs...
    I am still shocked that kids the world over do it.
    Well, the west over. :)

  5. Cute outfit! It's so wierd how performing on a "big stage" (as my Bria puts it) is a lot less scary then WE as parents anticipate it will be. Looks like a fun performance!
    Hey...are you guys ever up our way? We'd love to see you if you ever do!

  6. Is she really that much taller than Cameron? Never noticed that before.

    I'm glad she performed. She was drawn to give the talk next Sunday but she didn't want to. Hopefully this confidence travels across from school to church. :)

  8. Too cute :) I can't imagine Bria as shy! I'm sure she'll out grow it as long as she's involved in stuff and her confindence grows.

    I love that you got her and her crush. That will be so fun for her to see one day!

  12. How cute. You know, I have always been extremely shy, but have also always loved to perform. It's funny how the shyest people can be like that.
