Tonight was the presentation of the opera Pearl by the kids at Devin’s school. And I have to say I was very impressed. It’s a workshop run by Hollis and William Bokhout. They somehow manage, in just one week, to teach the songs and dances to the kids for a Friday-night performance. Booyah! The costumes were awesome, the kids had a ton of fun and we were the totally proud parents watching Devin in his stage debut (if you don’t count the preschool holiday singalongs). Sheepishly, I had itty-bitty tears in my eyes when he took his bow.
