In the small town we live in, nothing is bigger than the 1st grade circus. Nothing. Prom? Nope. Graduation? Uh-uh. It's ALL about the 1st grade circus. It has been going on for at least 35 years and the entire town looks forward to it every year. My darling girl was a ballerina and a hula dancer. I was so proud of her! She is really shy, but tried really hard to show off all her hard work.
