Opera at the ballpark and a class share

On Sunday, we took a walk over to the ballpark where they were showing a live broadcast of the SF Opera Turandot.  It was cool to watch the opera at the ballpark for us, but boring for Ella. Luckily, they had a lot of kids activities to do.  Ella got her face painted and made a beautiful paper lantern.  Then she went over to the little ball field and hit some balls.  I mean she really hit some balls!  Today was a big day at school for Ella.  Ella had a classroom share today.  Every day, for 5 weeks, each student presents something that they want the class to know about them.  Ella brought in her drum set and played the drums for her class.  We weren’t allowed to watch the share.  Ella was so confident about what she wanted to to.  She showed us the night before and she was like, “The drums can be complicated and challenging.  I have been playing the drums for 2 months and I find them easy.  Here are some of my beats.  I also like to do attention beats in case people aren’t listening.  I saw Luisa right after Ella’s share and she gave me a thumbs up and said that Ella was awesome.  Ella also was the first in her class to loose a tooth this school year.  She is the first on the tooth poster.  Every day when we pick her up, she tells us about how many times she got to see Ms. Alicia.  It really completes her day.

    I’d give anything to have been a fly on the wall to watch Ella pay her drums for the class. She does look very proud. Love you.
