No - it's true ... amazingly I didn't cry buckets at last week's Summer Show performance! Only welled up a little as the kids were singing the closing number! I was so intent on filming the show and trying to focus is not easy at times when your eyes are losing their long sighted ability!
It was the best school Summer Show I've seen - based around the children's last day of school whilst they remembered their years in Primary ie comical sketches of past infant nativities, frantic registrations and school trips - the kids acted it out tongue in cheek to a tee and made us all laugh (and cry in some cases!).
I had asked our Y6 teacher if we could please have a cheerful song to finish the show - instead of the usual emotional ballads that have us crying buckets ... luckily she obliged with this one ...
We're All In This Together ...
So glad it was upbeat and bouncy - the kids all sang and bobbed around on stage with their pom poms and did us proud - they are growing up so fast ...!
A frantic last week of school ahead - only 5 more drop offs/pick ups at Primary! School picnic and walk/pilgrimage to a local church/abbey, Y6 leavers party, school leavers assembly, that will be mascara carnage - that's the one where even the 'hardest' of the mums are expecting to have a cry. The kids have to take pics of their reception days in to make a collage - once I set eyes on the display that will be it - the Bourjois Waterproof mascara will really be put to the test as I'm even welling up just typing this and listening to the above track - think it will always remind me of my daughter's Primary days now - ahhh I'm so pathetic!!
It's going to be an emotional week and I'm going to be an emotional wreck so any useful tips on self control would be greatly appreciated!
