Grandparents Day at the Grand Ole Opry

Actually, we weren't at the Grand Old Opry...but it sure seemed that way! For Grandparents Day at the children's school the production had a great country theme. Some of the 5th graders sang solos...and were even dressed and made up to look like the country singer they portrayed. They had Roy Acuff, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and Conway Twitty to name just a few. The young man in black is my 10 year old grandson Dylan. He performed singing a solo by Tim McGraw. The song he sang was "Live Like You Were Dying". The kids thought it was really funny that he was singing that song to a bunch of older grandparents. LOL!
This is Christian. He has his fake beard pulled down so you can see his face. He's into the "I'm not smiling for pictures" stage. Geez! They even sprayed his hair gray so he would look a little more like Kenny Rogers. His class sang "Coward of the County" and "Lucille".
This is Ryker, who is almost 7. He sang with the other kids from his class in a group. They belted out several country songs. Of course, they had all the hand motions to go with them. So stinkin' cute!
And last but not least, here is Ashlyn, the youngest of my 5 grandchildren. She sat in the audience with us since they don't allow the kindergarten age students to participate in the production. And I totally get that!!! Haha!
Thanks so much for indulging me. I am so proud of these kids, I just have to share once in a while! :) I will be back tomorrow with something crafty for you.

My goodness Michelle, you certainly have reason to be proud. Your grandkids couldn't possibly get any cuter. And they've got singing talent to boot? Congratulations on such a wonderful crew.
