Song and Dance

The end of school usually involves many concerts and musical "shows". Thursday, May 21st, had two. Rachel's school had a "Sing and Swing" concert and Carmen had her first oboe recital.

It was hottest day of the week. All students in Spring Street Elementary participated in a "Sing and Swing" show for parents to view. The whole show lasted close to an hour and a half. (I only saw 45 minutes because I had to take time off from work to go.) The music teacher had taught and choreographed dances for each grade. It is impressive to think that she works with each class individually and somehow all the kids look great together. The second grade had three dances to perform. I will only show you one of them.

Later that evening, we drove to Natick for Carmen's oboe recital. Carmen's oboe teacher invites all of his students to participate in this recital. It was very impressive. The program had 40 oboeists, each with their own piece. We were impressed hearing some of the more experienced seniors play. The whole recital took two hours!


Carmen enjoys playing the oboe and plans to continue it over the summer and through next year.
Thanks to Jenna for letting me borrow her camera so I could get these great pictures without needing a flash!
Jenna and Isaac also helped us that night by getting Tobin after his districts race. Tobin runs the 2 mile and sometimes the 1 mile. His best time is 10:54 in the 2 mile. This time qualified him for Districts but unfortunately not States. He did make varsity for Cross Country, Winter Track and Spring Track and Field! Nice Job Tobin!
