The talent show went well - every bit as fun and hectic and charming as you would expect a bunch of kids getting up to strut their stuff would be.
We had a last minute addition - the youngest sister of two of the kids who had recited poems decided that she was feeling brave, and recited her poem. It was her very first time performing, and she did wonderfully. (And had a great big grin that let us know she was having a ball!)
This afternoon, the kids and I are going on a little adventure. Actually, we're just catching the bus that comes closest to our house, and riding the whole route. I completely HATE driving, and we have an inexpensive bus system in town, so we are going to try to start using it! (The women and the transit office gave us the idea to just ride the complete route to familiarize ourselves with it.) The schedules and maps are a bit confusing, so hopefully this will help clear up some of that. As an extra bonus, the kids's library cards work as bus passes to and from the library!
