At the kids' school, the third graders always put on a play. It's pretty involved, and Syd has taken it REALLY seriously. Way more seriously than Eli did when he went through. She doesn't exactly love being the center of attention, so I was cautiously optimistic about how much she was going to actually enjoy the experience. Even more so when, days before the performance, she casually mentioned that she had two solos (!)
It was so unbelievably precious (of course). The play was a whodunnit about a missing paragraph, so it was all about writing conventions and essay composition. Syd had two parts, one as a maid and the second as Amelia Earhart.
