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.
