One Saturday morning, mid October, saw both both sets of grandparents (plus one uncle and one aunt) descend upon Gordon’s Bay to join us for Jessica’s playschool musical concert, simply entitled “The Art of Noise”.
The Vergeet-My-Nie Playschool teachers had all been working hard with the kids leading up to the concert (which as I suspect might very well be akin to herding cats), and truth be told, I was rather looking forward to seeing Jessica in costume and up on stage – seeing as I had missed her first ever concert last year due to me being away in Japan at the time!
With Chantelle helping at the door with ticket collection, it was up to me to bring Emily through, where we linked up with everyone already there and took our seats in a rapidly filling Gordon’s Bay Primary school hall (co-incidentally, the school which Jessica starts attending next year).
What followed was a super cute (and noisy) production where the kids with their song and dance routines were without a doubt the stars. I have to say, I was super impressed at just how awesome a performer Jessica is – certainly no such thing as stage fright for my little girl!
(She was similarly as chuffed as I was with her performance post concert mind you!)
After collecting all Jessica’s art (which the school had laid out for the parents to view), we ended off the morning by heading back to our place for a nice family braai, followed by a rather tense quarterfinal World Cup Rugby match which thankfully the Springbok team actually won!
Oh, and thanks to Cara and Jess, the grandparents even got to see a bit of Frozen for the (amazingly) very first time!
