Last night the students in grades 1-4 at Christ Community Lutheran School in Webster Groves put on their annual musical, an operetta of sorts before a packed house. There were so many people in attendance there was no where to park in either of the two large parking lots. I ended up in a nearby neighborhood I was totally unfamiliar with. The many people were there for a reason, this was a spectacular production for which the kids had been rehearsing for months. There are approximately something over 300 kids in these grades and they were all in this baseball themed musical. You would not have believed how professionally they sang and acted. No hesitation, no scared/quiet voices. This was amazing.
In the end, the 4th graders were the lead because this is their last year on the Webster campus. Next year they head to the Kirkwood branch of CCLS and that includes our oldest grandson, Christian.
Here are a couple of pictures taken after the operetta ended with the 4th graders (and there are 50 of them) making a silly pyramid.

Then who is the one to leap off into thin air? Christian
Here's how things looked, the kids in the play were across the front and covered both right and left sides.
