Comments:  After we did our morning prayers and quiet time, we immediately jumped into our play rehearsal. We were reminded today that we have only two more classes before our end of the year performance — so we still have some work to do.

The kids did great today. (We took some photos of the class chaos today. Make sure you check them out.) We must have run through the play two or three times, and it was hot in the cafeteria, to boot. Now that we are pretty clear on the sequence of the different actions, we will try and run through the entire play from beginning to end in our next class. For the parents who have volunteered to help on the stage: Please join us next class — we need you!!!

Also, we would like to remind you that your child will need to be dressed completely in black (or navy blue) for the performance on June 13. It would be really great if we could do a full dress rehearsal on June 6. So, please have your child's outfit ready to wear by then. Yoga or sweat pants are fine. We prefer for your child to have a long sleeved shirt, if possible. The dark colors are going to be absolutely essential for the puppet show to look its best :-)

Kids, because we are in the cafeteria for our rehearsals, the aunties are going to bring a nice sweet treat for all your hard work. So, let's make sure that we get right down to business again when we meet!

Can't wait to see you all next week — parents, too!

Time for that nice long bike ride ... this weather is absolutely divine ....
