So, just to sort of sum things up a bit, we had a great Christmas!! It started out with the kids doing a Christmas performance at school. Jake's grade sang "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas", and he did great! They did a slide show with his so I couldn't take a video or any pictures. Then Kolby's class sang "Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer." Before we even went into the gym, he was already upset that he had to take off his Santa hat he wore to school and wear his reindeer hat for the song, so things didn't quite start off on the right foot anyway. But, as the song started, his hat just wouldn't stay on right for him! I don't know if it was a combination of everything, but it sort of all went downhill from there. He tried to stay up there and sing but his tears seemed to take over so, in the end, his teacher came up and said he could go and sit with me. It was so sweet though! Maybe next year will be better!!
