Tony not with the program

Tony's kindergarten had the kids put on a show for the parents.  Thankfully, I didn't have to go.  These shows are mind-numbingly boring and I don't really care too much to see how other children are doing anyway -- I only concentrate on Tony.

Tony's mother Jenny, who is into this sort of thing, did go and made a report to me.  She also took some video but there is no point in uploading it.  Tony really didn't do much.  He is still too young to do anything solo.  As it is, it is hard enough to get him to participate along with a group.  So for yesterday's show, the teachers had him wave his arms and dance with a group of his classmates.  Jenny said that for the first group show that Tony was a part of, Tony did well in that he waved his arms in unison with the other students.  However, for the next shows, Tony stood at one end a group, that was spread out wide, and cried.  Watching the video, one can see the children beside him waving and dancing while he stands still, causing a teacher to try to comfort him.  Jenny says that Tony cried because he saw her and thought he was going home.

So, Tony wasn't with the program.  Oh well!
