Friday night McCall and I went to see Elliott and Sophie in their high school's "Glee" concert.  It didn't (quite) measure up to the talent on the real Glee TV show, but it was rather entertaining, nonetheless.

The concert featured some soloists, some really corny but cute choreography, an extremely impressive jazz band, and that really cute teacher I would have had a crush on if I were any of these girls in the show.  (McCall and I got a kick out of the fact that he wasn't really conducting the band like he did at the Christmas concert.  Instead he would just pop his arms at them every once in a while as he stood in front of them and got his groove on ... it was adorable.)

I was snapping quite a few pictures throughout the show, not necessarily just of my kids.  After one of those pictures, the guy I was sitting next to asked, "So is one of your kids in this choir?"

I said, "No.  I am just taking pictures of the girl I want my son to take to the prom."

He laughed and said, "Isn't it funny how we do that?  I have set three of my kids up with their spouses and they are all happily married." 

Well, how cool would that be?  To hand pick your children's spouses.  And here I was just hoping to encourage my son to ask a cute girl to the prom.   :)

We picked one we liked for Sophie too ... 

The kids all really enjoyed themselves and you could totally tell ... that makes it all the more fun!

I'd say this license plate I saw in the parking lot that night sums up the night pretty well!

    What a fun production! I never had a crush on cute teachers but I ALWAYS chased summer camp counselors :)
