Today our class put on the play I was telling you all about in my last post. All of the kids who weren't in the play (me and several others) got to have "backstage" jobs. I was in charge of the curtain. Claire, our Anne Frank, wasn't able to memorize all of her lines, and neither did most of the other kids. There were so many "ums" and "uhhs" on that stage. Our teacher was turning red, blue, green, and purple. Then, one of the other kids ran into me backstage and I fell, pulling the curtain down. A few parents in the audience began to clap, and the principal didn't let them go back on to finish the show. It was so sad.
Then, when the principal was handing out the awards, she called Claire up to get her perfect attendance certificate. When she was going up the stairs, she tripped on her shoelace and fell. She hit her face and got a bad nosebleed, and started crying. When we went back to class after the assembly to get our stuff, I tapped her on the shoulder and told her she was such a big baby. She grunted and stormed away... and it felt so good.
After school, I went with Quinn, Ben, and their mom to see a movie at this theater downtown. They have what they call the family matinee, which is always an old Disney movie. Today we saw Dumbo, which I hadn't seen since I was a really little kid.
But the really big news is that I'm now officially on spring break!! Yay!! Are you all on break too or did you already have it?
Until next time,
