My Achy Breaky Heart

Only Frances and her classmates can turn this …

…into something completely adorable.

Frances’s school put on their second singing concert after receiving rave reviews and calls for “encore!” after the Christmas show.  Or at least that’s what they told the room of exhausted parents who had just schlepped their entire family to the local elementary school in time for the 7pm start time.  But it was well worth it and the kids were wonderful.

The theme this time was “Rockin’ through the Decades,” so each class sung a tune from the past, including:

Yackety-Yak (Don’t Talk Back)

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Chicken Soup with Rice

And of course, My Achy Breaky Heart

While I can think of about 1,000 songs from the 1990s that I would have chosen over Mr. Cyrus’s one-hit wonder, Frances and her friends had a blast.  And there is nothing like a mullet wig to elicit constant laughter from the audience:

Frances’s usual Richmond fan club showed up, including


Gram-E and Mr. Pyles

Grandma and Grandpa

And her #1 fan, George

Per George’s usual style, he was completely fascinated by the show, clapping at all of the right parts and silently longing to be up on stage with the rest of the kids. 

So, once the last song ended, that’s exactly where he headed:

Someone get that boy some dance lessons.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

PS - I can't sign off without a huge "thank you" to Will's parents and the Pyles for coming to the concert.  Frances is a lucky, lucky girl to have so many wonderful people who love her so much!
