Last Friday was my last day to sing with Kieran's second grade class. I cannot begin to explain how much I have enjoyed this very small volunteer service, and I'm already missing it. Kieran's wonderful teacher, Mrs. Schaeffer, invited the parents and interim principal on the last day. Here we are singing Yellow Submarine (another mom brought in her trumpet to play along)--you can clearly hear Mike and Kieran!:
And Swiss Boy:
Mrs. Mabbott gave a special talk about how sad it is that we do not have music in the schools at this point and thanked me for singing with the kids. We sang a surprise song for Mrs. Schaeffer in the vein of the one we sang for our retiring principal in December. Here's an excerpt:
Then they gave me a wonderful flower arrangement and a basket of wonderful cards and letters. I will treasure these notes--they are absolutely precious. I especially enjoyed seeing the way the children see me!

|Don't I have long eyelashes?|

I've always wanted to be a queen of something...
