Tonight was the third, fourth and fifth grade patriotic program at Katie's school. (It's still weird that it's not Ryan's school anymore!) Fitting with her "Sparkle" T-shirt, our girl surely did shine!
The kids sang two songs that really took me back. "Fifty Nifty" is how I (and a lot of us!) learned the 50 states (in alphabetical order, no less), and "The Preamble" was a Schoolhouse Rock fave that paid off when we had to memorize those words in high school government.
It was a wonderful program, and we were so glad Memaw, Nana and Papa got to join us for the show. Way to go, Kates!
I SO remember singing 50 Nifty in school. That's how I know all 50 states in ABC order!
Thanks for the huge comment on my blog about videos. I appreciate your help!!
No kidding, I was just thinging about that song not too long ago. Somebody was bragging that they could say the States in alphabetical order and I thought, "That's no biggie - I can do that!"
I starting singing the song and, gasp!, I forgot how the tune goes when you get to Kentucky!!
I may have to swing by and let Katie remind me how it goes!
