At Sophia's school each class performs during the weekly assembly once during the school year. Sophia's class assembly happened to be 2 days after my parents arrived for their spring visit & Alexandra's first birthday! She was so excited for Nana & Papa to be there, and was so confident about her speaking part (she called herself one of the "talkers").
The assembly focused on the weather in the different parts of the world. Lots of butterflies and raindrops dancing madly around the stage. It was too cute, and we had our first experience with being proud stage parents!
All of the kids had a flower or a raindrop painted on one cheek & their national flag on the other. Sophia, not realizing this, insisted on flowers painted on both cheeks. When she realized she was supposed to have the US flag on one cheek there was only one place left to put it - on her forehead!
