coming out of our shel

November 17 2013 041

on sunday, Lily took part in her first theater production

coming out of our shel, a collection of Shel Silverstein poems adapted for the stage by Sara Kaplan (this mama) , Nirvana Sherman and Kate Stirman

Will and i were not sure how Lily was going to do

sure she had been going for two hours every friday for weeks to rehearse but, the last time she was on stage to perform on her own, was during her school talent show last year, she froze and then ran off towards me

this time around, i’m not sure if it’s because she is a bit older, or if it was because she was performing amongst friends, but she did great

all the kids did great!

it was such an amazing experience for Lily to be part of such a project and it was such an amazing experience for Will and i to be able to see her perform

even though i know she was nervous, this experience really did push her to come out of her “shel”
