My video camera ran out of battery life just minutes into the program so Jonathan was strictly ordered to catch every moment on his camera lens. Therefore, that left me on Luca duty. He was being a total stinker pushing both big and small kids around as he tried to weasel his way on and off playground equipment. I was able to mostly watch Emma when she performed. However, I was so thankful when the nearly 1.5 hr. long program concluded because Luca gave me a crick in my neck again from the lifting and restraining I had to do with him. In his mind you should not be restrained when at a playground--makes total sense to a 4 year old, right?
I'm big and you know it...
Emma never wants to wear pig-tails. I think maybe because we go overboard in how cute she looks in them. Who knows. For whatever reason I think it has been close to a year since she wore them. However, she was telling me the day before her spettacolo how she wanted to wear pig-tails for her program. Sure enough she still insisted on them, but of course had to remove them later so her cap would stay on her head.
playing her role perfectly in the skit
an enthusiastic participant
Her class theme this year was food, health and cooking
Cutest ever "Cuoco Pasticcione"
A very serious moment for Emma to receive her diploma
The graduates from Emma's class section
Emma's teacher for 2 years, Patrizia. (Marisa was sick)
As a side note: This week Emma also attended an open house at her new school. She is excited to go to the same school as Samuel but a bit nervous at the same time. Her class size is small which we are very thankful for. 9 girls and 4 boys. There are just 2 other kids from her current school that will be in her class, so lots of new friends to be made. Her teachers: Maestra Giuseppina e Maestra Chiara seem very nice and we know that Emma will thrive in her new educational setting.
