Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Wilson Elementary School had a little Christmas program the other night and here's Jake and the House Blonde belting it out.
I'm still learning this stuff but it seems like every time I post a video on YouTube it darkens up. I dunno.
That's Jake down front without a hat. Katie is in the back, third from the left because short kids should be placed directly behind really tall kids so nobody can see them. Katie's friend Hailey is two to the right of Jake (another tall girl, in front, with flouncy black curls) and Alissa is way down to the left on the end. Apparently she was midget enough to rate the front row.
That's probably more than you wanted to know so I'll shut up now and let you watch the video that took a record 11 hours to upload.
UDATE: Got some emails wondering how come a public school can put on a Christmas program and as Brian mentioned in the comments, some public schools just don't do that at all. In this case, the parents are pretty involved in the school and I think that can make a difference. For example, Mrs TWC's friend Michelle is PTA boss and she didn't ask, she just plunked a tree in the office foyer and had a bunch of kids decorate it. No comments. Just some applause from the staff.
It's not like PC isn't in evidence, there was plenty of Frosty, Santa, and Christmas in the Tuesday show, but the kids weren't singing Away in a Manger. Wasn't any talk about Baby Jesus, neither.
And don't even get me started on what happened when the teacher asked The House Blond to bring a plastic toy rifle to school for the Daniel Boone play about America moving west.
