Hula Girl

Chloe had her annual school play today, called “A More Beautiful World.” It was very cute. Awfully long, but very cute. Chloe’s class’ scene took place in Hawaii – and the kids did a hula dance and sung a hula-ish song.

I know this is an extremely crappy photo. But it’s the best I could do with my little camera. So you’ll have to take my word for it that if you look hard enough, you might be able to spy Chloe in the second row. I tried filming some of it, but the little movie was a mess.

Chloe was in heaven because she got to wear a bathing suit, a hula skirt and a lei. Surprisingly, she danced to the beat of the music fairly well. And she sung, too. After the play, the class had a “luau” party. With pizza. I don’t quite get the connection myself, but I guess it was doubtful the kids would eat roast pig.

Luckily, I missed the party (had my fill of them when I was enjoying life as a non-remunerated professional mom). But I made my mom take Sophie. Chloe was thrilled to have her Grammy there, and Sophie loves spending time among the big kids.

Chloe told me that the boys were trying to catch glimpses of the girls changing out of their bathing suits, and it sounds like some of them actually succeeded. Chloe wasn’t too fazed by this (which is actually quite disturbing, now that I think about it), because she said at least she saw one of the boys changing out of his costume. That, of course, made me feel a lot better.

I can’t wait until next year.
