Cade's Christmas Program

I know, aren't those pre-school, kindergarten and early grade school programs all the same? And yet, no. Because each school program is made of small individuals with very little time on earth yet to mature in social skills -- and the results can be hilarious, touching, embarassing (especially for parents), pride-invoking, and, afterwards, the opportunity for parents to pour into those small human beings an abundance of confidence building, nurturing, bonding, rewarding words and actions (and quite often sugar) that are absolutely necessary for the individual to grow within community.

Kindergarten class sings. Cade is wearing the green sleeveless vest, with tan pants; second row, third from left.

And, again. The camera also pauses on Cade's friend Harley Allen, middle of the top row.

The Truth...

" The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking eachother out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that band us all together as family in the first place."
