On the same day that Elizabeth had her seizure, Emily's first major play debuted. It marked the end of a very intense 6 weeks for all of us. It was the annual 5th & 6th grade play. In order to let the younger kids learn the ropes, most of the acting roles and major directing and managing jobs go to the 6th graders while the 5th graders have the supporting roles and jobs. Emily, as one of the younger 5th graders, was honored to be given the role of understudy for the entire cast and assistant stage manager. She lived and breathed this play for 6 weeks - 5 days/week. (And it was our first experience with leaving a kid after school and not picking her up until dinner time. Wow - such a strange feeling!)
As the understudy for the entire cast, Emily put in a TON of work. And she despaired of anyone ever getting sick. She was born for the stage, as she tells us. Ah, drama is the life! But, finally someone dropped out! She was beyond thrilled. Until she found out that it was the boy who played the chicken. Yep, the chicken. She was horrified, but she did a great job.
And, I have to say that she was the best chicken ever! :)
