Silas was a tree in his class musical. Let's just say, generally speaking, Silas gets the backdrop parts in school productions. He's not much of a stage man, but he did that tree dance perfectly and watching him recite the Catalan poem so confidently was a decidedly good moment for all of us.
He has really grown this year in his language skills. Primarily because his teacher, who I'm guessing speaks a good bit more English than she lets on, refuses to speak to him in anything but Catalan. While I didn't exactly have the warm fuzzies over this policy, I have to hand it to her...he's grown by leaps and bounds already this year in language.
Their play was a mix of traditional Nativity figures, hilarious miniatures of traditional reindeer and snow fairies, and a few songs and poems. Afterward, we were all invited to the classroom to receive our handmade Christmas ornament, and look at the latest artwork. Check out his amazing self-portrait! I sure hope that makes its way home one day!
We've come a long way since last Christmas, and I couldn't be prouder of my hard working little tree!!!
