This was a big deal. Sure, for most kids and parents it was a standard school concert, but for Ellie? It was a breakthrough. Last year the first grade concert was extremely difficult for Ellie. She was so overwhelmed by the whole thing...standing close to people for long practices, controlling her body, hearing lots of voices...she was a mess. She did make it through that concert, but not without a LOT of anxiety.
This year she did great!!! She handled everything better, didn't seem as anxious, and looked happy while she performed! We are SO proud of Ellie. For how far she's come, for how hard she's worked. Keep it up sweet girl!
