The first grade classes on tracks 1 and 3 held a winter concert today for the parents. It was the most adorable thing I've ever seen. They sang songs, read poems and told jokes. It was fantastic. Then they went back to the classroom for a "cast party" and the parents were allowed to join them. It was so obvious the kids worked very hard on this and they were all so proud of themselves. It's things like this that make me love our school. The teachers and administrators are so good about getting everyone involved. Here are some other pictures from the performance where I zoomed in on Macy a little bit more. You can enlarge the pics below by clicking on them.
While I fully enjoyed the concert, there was a slight sniffle to be had. It will be the last event photographed with my D60. The autofocus has been wonky for a while and it had gotten to the point of being almost unusable and definitely not reliable so I had to break down and get a new camera. I know, it sounds just terrible. I ordered a Nikon 5100 a few days ago and today it finally arrived.
The odd part about this is that we are planning a trip to Disney in a few days. This will be our third trip to Disney and the third camera breakage immediately surrounding the trip. The first time, the LCD display stopped working while we were in the airport on our way down. Not too bad because the camera was still usable I just couldn't see any of the pictures until I uploaded them to my computer. The second trip, my lens got hit and started wobbling thus making it unusable but it did hang in there until we got home. Now, a week before we leave, my autofocus goes out. I'm beginning to think Disney is in cahoots with Nikon!
Since my camera arrived around 3:00 this afternoon, I have spent every spare moment reading the manuals and playing with the copious settings. I must admit, I'm in love. :) Here is the very first photo I took with my new camera. It's nothing special, just the view from our back deck but I'm posting it for posterity.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
