We traveled into DC to watch our twin grand daughters
sing in a fourth grade chorus of 110 classmates!
But first we had to get there – so we took Bode on the Metro!
And you can see the excitement in his eyes!
Riding the train!
We arrived around 3:00 pm. The girls were to sing at 5:00 pm.
So – we walked to
the Elephant & Castle to have lunch!
We were going to meet Tammy and Marcus
and we killed some time before going back outside
in the wind and cold –
18 degrees wind chill!
So – we walked up the street to Old Ebbit Grill
And they had some wine
and got warmed up!
When we walked back down the street
we found all 110 kids standing outside the gate
they still were not allowed in!
Soon – the secret service and the park police arrived
and opened up all the gates –
Then it was onto the Christmas Tree stage
It was really cold and the wind was blowing
All the kids were ushered into a big tent
where they grouped up – got warm
and waited to come out!
Cassidy ended up on the top row – and you could see her rising
up and down on her tiptoes to be seen! LOL
Then they began to sing – and I was very impressed!
They sang five songs – and they were really good –
All are classmates of the fourth grade in the school they attend.
It was well worth the cold and wind –
the kids were great
and the setting beautiful
We have been here a number of times
and it always sends s shiver
and a good feeling.
They will remember this –
when they were young
THEY SANG IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE
AT THE WHITE HOUSE CHRISTMAS TREE!
