Veronica was in the talent show at school on Friday and it went just great. When the signup came out for the talent show, Maria said she was going to do something and then when it came time to audition, she cried and freaked out, said she changed her mind and that she had stage fright. So I said okay, no problem, and I emailed the music teacher and said Maria had changed her mind and she said fine. Then I thought I was all finished with the talent show and THEN Veronica came home with a notice in her folder that said "Congratulations! You are in the Talent Show!" and I was like, what is this, Veronica? She said, super casually, I'm in the talent show. I said what is your ... talent? Dance, she said. I said okay but I was doubtful. Then she went to the first out of two rehearsals which she was supposed to attend and came home saying that she was supposed to go to not just two but three and that now she was singing. She said she had eaten her aftercare snack and she didn't think it was a good idea to dance on a full stomach. I am not making any of this up. So I said okay, what are you singing? and she said Dark Horse by Katy Perry. Mmmmkay, I said and printed out the lyrics for her. THEN she changed it to Roar by Katy Perry and that's what it stayed. I saw a rehearsal last week, the last one, because I had to stay with the other girls and wait for Veronica before we got Anthony, and she almost didn't rehearse. She was trying to change her song again and her teacher smartly told her that the program was already printed, so Veronica rehearsed it and then Friday they did the talent show for their school. Her teacher sent a general type email Friday afternoon and I couldn't take it, I wrote her back and asked if Veronica had actually performed and said YES, she had and it went really well so I was massively relieved. Mike couldn't go because he stayed home with Anthony and Felicity but Marta and her family went and Laura and I went and she did really well. It was all super cute, they all did a great job. I'm glad she did it and I'm glad it's over!
