The Benefit of Blogging

Today was grandparents and special persons day at the CHANEL school. My kids have all kinds of special people in their lives but most of them live elsewhere. This is when having a digital camera, a video recorder and a blog come in handy.

It was Eli's idea to video tape the event. On the way to school he was lamenting about how Nana and Papa were going to miss it. He put his finger up in the air and shouted, "I have a brilliant idea!" "Mommie you could film the program for your blog, then Nana and Papa can watch it on line!" He is always thinking. Natalie chimed in and said they can go to and read it. CJ suggested I make a bid-eo. With all those comments I felt obligated to make sure I posted the footage.

We brought our local Grandma, Grandma Eileen to the event. She got a chance to sit with the kids as they ate lunch. We shared our Grandma with Maya, who has grandparents in Hawaii.

Since Maya's mom has infant triplets at home, the last place she would bring them is into the snot factory that is an elementary school during RSV season. I could totally relate, so we assigned ourselves to Maya for the day. In the grand scheme of things, what is one more kid to love on for an hour?

The singing portion of the program was really sweet. The kids knew most of the lyrics and about 75% of the hand motions.

They were excited to be on stage and it was like the paparazzi was called for the filming of this show, because every single parent and or grandparent was taking video. These are precious moments indeed. Grandma Eileen and I were quite proud of the little stars. Kindergarten kids are truly fun to watch.

So the benefit of blogging is right here in the sights and sounds of the Internet. It is the next best thing to being here in person.
