2011 Onoway Elementary School Christmas Concert

On December 1, 2011, the Onoway Elementary School performed their "area famous" Christmas concert.  The 2011 concert did not disappoint.

Tryouts were held in the middle of November and Claire tried out for, and got the lead part as Santa.  We were very, very proud of her and of course, she kicked butt!!!!!

She was also involved in the Senior Choir (grades 4-6) and the Hand Bell Choir.  The members of the Hand Bell choir get up and head to the school for practice every Thursday morning at 7:00 am.  That means that we are up and out the door at 6:40 am every Thursday so that we can pick up Claire's friend, Addison, and head to the school.  It is totally worth the sacrifice of a few minutes extra sleep to see the kids performing soooo well.

This year was Claire's last elementary school concert as she will age out when she moves up to grade 7.  I have to admit that I was a little teary when this realization hit me during the concert while I was watching Claire and her friends up there on the stage.  They are all growing up into such amazing young women.  It just all seems to be slipping away so quickly, but at the same time I am so excited to see what becomes of all of them as they grow.  Ahhhh, being a parent!!!
