5th grade madness!

The last month of fifth grade is no joke at our school! They have SO many activities. They had two field trips, manners banquet, the living history museum, super kids day, a picnic, talent show, a choir concert, a musical, an awards ceremony and etc! It was such a busy month for Ella! It was so fun to see her elementary years come to an end and see her perform in so many things.
In her living history museum, she was Sacagawea. She did a great job memorizing her speech.
She then performed in her 5th grade musical and got the part of the wicked witch. She has been staying after school for a while for it and did a great job learning her lines. 
Isn't she adorable?!?
She did her parts well and sang her songs with grace. 
She acted like a natural actress up there!
She was so proud of herself for getting the part as they only had a few parts to give. 
I am really proud of her for trying out. 
The day after her musical she made the school talent show and performed the song "How Far I'll Go" from the movie Moana. 
Partway through her song the music cut out for a couple seconds and then came back on. With it cutting out she got off for a couple measures. She recovered well, but I think because of that she didn't place. She was super bummed. She really sang well and I felt like much better than many, but sadly it didn't turn out how she hoped. I was super proud of her though. She can just get up and perform and it is a gift!

Finally was awards ceremony. She cleaned up there! She got 9 awards! She got two awards for choir. A participation award, and a trophy for being in it for 2 years, a safety patrol award, the bibliophile award for her class (love of books), the Einstein wanna-be science award for her class, perfect attendance, S.O.A.R award for always making good choices, the A/B honor roll (she had one 89), and an award for her performance as the wicked witch in the play. She was constantly going to the stage and I was proud to be her mom.
She can hardly hold all her awards!
Proud mom!
And her proud father! I was so glad he had the day off and could come.
Naturally Deacon wanted a picture with his big sis!
Mrs. Reynolds was her teacher this year and she really liked her. I am grateful for good teachers. She was able to stay at Eagle Springs Elementary all of her Elementary years and it was such a good experience for her. She had amazing teachers who really helped her love learning and school. She is not always the best or the smartest, but she tries so hard and always wants to be involved and participate and I love her for that!! I look forward to seeing what wonderful things this young lady will accomplish.
