The Hockey Game

Getting ready to go out on the ice:

This is where we got to go out on the ice before anyone arrived and check the microphones and practice our song:

After our practice, we got to hang out "backstage" and color and eat!

Getting ready to go on! We were all so nervous until we spotted the high school color guard. A student said, "Look! It's Veteran's who came home from the war to see us sing the National Anthem." After that everyone was in their place and ready to go (before that we had some kiddos who thought they might want to sit out!):

The first thing we saw when we walked out onto the ice was the back of the goalie. I thought it was super cool!

Our performance..they were ROCKSTARS! I loved when the crowd began to cheer about 3/4 of the way in and the kids just stopped singing, looked at Shawn for affirmation, then started up again. I also loved when they spotted themselves on the jumbotron and some pumped their fists into the air! My absolute favorite part though was afterwards when they couldn't stop smiling!

It was a bonus that we got to see a hockey game (that went into overtime, then a shoot-out, then a sudden death shoot-out!) It was a bummer we lost!

Here is the video of our practice. I can't figure out how to get Mrs. Box's video from facebook onto here. You can see her video if you log onto facebook and find the Imagine Charter Academy official page. It is so cute!
