The thing about Christmas programs when you’re a preschooler… is the waiting.
There’s Quinlan in the green shirt. It was a long program… and the preschoolers were one of the last to perform. Usually they’re one of the first and then they’re sent to sit with their parents… but this was a new all-school format…
Notice he’s had to move closer to the teacher… and he doesn’t appreciate the recorder music of his schoolmates!
He sits through the bluegrass band, the square dancing, the middle school band, the elementary band, the high school choir (joined by teachers and younger students to actually make a choir) and the Virginia Reel.
Even Lorelei with us in the bleachers has to be entertained by some unflattering selfies…
He had already told the teacher he was ready to just go sit with his grandparents… She managed to get him to sit next to her and hold onto this Special Piece of Paper With Both Hands. Special Helper is a Quinlan type of job.
They made it through the program! It was an entertaining one, in more ways than one!
Then the best part…
Well, for some people!
