The Baby Swans Soared

Yes, I believe I can say –
completely unbiased – that the Swan Lake excerpt was the
highlight of the kindergarten talent show.

Maddie and Elise showed a remarkable lack of nerves, and both
seemed excited and ready for their primary school debut. I was
fortunate to score a choice seat in the audience, and even more
fortunate that the two girls were seated right in front of me. I
took advantage and leaned in for some last-minute coaching.
“Ok, girls, what’s the most important thing to remember
here?” I whispered.

“To get out there and have fun and
if we forget something, just MAKE IT UP and smile like we meant to
do that all along!” the girls shouted.

Ok, I guess they were ready.

What more is there to say? They floated. They soared. They flitted.
They swam. They were awesome. You know, for kindergarteners.

When their piece was over, they sat primly in their matching white
tutus as the rest of their classmates performed – two little
straight-backed ballerinas politely enjoying other cultural forays.
It was really darn cute.

Really darn cute.
