K was first last week and came home on the Monday to tell me what she wanted to talk about (my seashells) and she even got a container to put in the ones she liked.
She seemed very confident the whole week so I let her be. (I'm the complete opposite of a helicopter parent)
On Friday I noticed the shells left behind. I was quite freaked - I don't believe in chasing up after kids but I reasoned that she had prepared the shells, she just left them behind. So off I went to the school on the way to the talk.
Coincidentally she was the second person I saw and she said I could take it home because they were done already.
Later, leaving Louisa's workplace, there were THREE missed calls from the school.
Anyway, long story short - I went straight there since it was time to get them anyway and the teachers told me K said she didn't practise and didn't have her stuff. But they did it anyway. I told them that was true - she prepared earlier in the week.
They said they'd send me the video of her later.
Well. It was excruciating. She was absolutely frozen to the spot. It was actually painful for me to watch. The poor teacher had to ask questions and then she answered them. But 1 min 18 seconds of agony.

The teacher said K could do show and tell again this week so she and Connor are both being PREPARED by their father daily.
I have to video them saying it, and then they do it again with him. Connor is like me - you can't get him off the stage when he knows his stuff - but K hates it. HATES.
I'm leaving her in D's capable hands. Apparently you approach these things different as an introvert :) so he is coaching her. Lord, have mercy!
I will let you know how it goes tomorrow but let's move onto happier stories.
You know how on the wedding photography blogs they have the brides pose with their model (non-smiling) faces? Yes, well, Kendra has it down perfect :)
My model face just makes me look cross. Sam, you have a great model face :)
This was winter walk 3.
