The Nutcracker

I was picked as the lucky parent to chaperone Caitlin's field trip to see the Nutcracker Ballet at the Von Braun Civic Center on Friday. Thank you Mrs. Boyer! We were afraid it was going to be cancelled due to the delayed start of school because of bad weather. Luckily, they just pushed the performance time back to 11:00, and we were able to attend. I met the class at the Civic Center and got to sit with Caitlin and one of her best friends Kaleigh. Huntsville Community Ballet performs the Nutcracker every year for the third grade classes in all of Madison County, and it was beautiful! Randy and I took Caitlin to see it when she was five years old, but she enjoyed it so much more this time because she was with her friends. I was very impressed with how very well-behaved the students were. It was a tw0-hour show, and they sat still and quiet during most of it. Of course, now Caitlin wants to be in the Nutcracker!
