This year (September-May) Kennedy was in a program called Up With Kids. She went once a week for an hour and they would sing, dance and act in preparation for a final year-end performance. At the end of the year (May), they put on a show/musical for everyone to see. This year the play was a mash-up of Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3. Kennedy did SO great and I was very proud.
Here are pictures (courtesy of my wonderful mom):
Here we have Kennedy politely listening for her instructions before the performance.
And this is Kennedy being . . . Kennedy.
In the first scene, she was an alien. An alien who apparently couldn't stop playing with her hair. But at least she was cute.
In her next scene she was a lovely pink flower:
She delivered her lines flawlessly.
And just look at that acting. Wow. Bravo, girl. Bravo.
And finally, in the last last scene (there were 8 scenes total, but I only really cared about the three she was in, of course), she was part of the menacing Jabberwocky.
Then they performed the song "Imagine." They sang as well as used sign language. My mom and I are both babies so we cried.
At the end of the performance, the teacher awarded each of the kids with an Oscar. Kennedy beamed.
And then, naturally, she showed Kaden that the Oscar has a butt.
