Tryouts for the Talent Show. ACK! My Love, Ciera, in the back, with her two best friends of all time, facing the panel. GO, CIERA BEARA!!! Ciera dancing during the try-out. My bro, Chris, said this: "Ciera just got done with her audition. They had to go first! One of their girls was late and didn't get to do it. I felt bad for her because she was out in the hall crying. It was just Ciera and her usual posse. It was pretty awful. They hadn't practiced anything and just sorta winged it. But I am very proud of Ciera for being brave enough to do it!!!" [It seems the young women held several 'practices' during the week prior, which amounted to 2 minutes of practice followed by two hours of play.] My Lovely Mother, Chris and I all thought this would be an interesting lesson for Ciera -- a way of realizing that there is 'serious' and then there is 'oh shite', and when her group went to the try-outs, she would learn which was which along with a little of why. Being as this was her first talent show of any sort, I'm with Chris -- proud of her for going for it without really comprehending what it was all about. Student of the Month for April - My Love, Ciera, in the center. Daddy Chris said she was trying to be 'blase' about it, but she was excited! Ciera and her teacher. Ciera is almost as tall as her teacher.
