More about Lara - an Oscar, maybe?!

Lara's school nativity play will be Whoops a Daisy Angel; whether it's a coincidence or not, we haven't asked, but the kids will be performing it on Monday 10th December, Lara's 5th birthday, and she will be playing the lead character!
She's had to bring home a script, so we've been practising her 7 lines, although when I came over all Steven Speilberg last night and tried to go through some lines with her, Lara clearly knows them all already from rehearsals they are doing at school, and gave me the full-on Prima Donna, I-know-this-already, who-do-you-think-you-are? treatment.
Even before we knew she was going to have the main part in the play, we'd looked into what drama classes there were locally, as Olga had done drama when she was younger, and enjoyed it. So as a happy coincidence yesterday was Lara's first drama class, and she enjoyed so much that when asked if she would like to stay for another hour and do "musical theatre", she did that too!
I wasn't there, and parents weren't allowed in the room where the lessons were taking place, so we're relying on Lara telling us what she did, which she's reluctant to do, but she wants to go again, and it keeps her entertained for a couple of hours after school one day, so that's fine with us. She'll miss her next lessons because they'll fall on her birthday, but she will have been in a play that day anyway.

So, time to get down to Ladbrokes and put some money on a Winter Olympics Gold medal and an Oscar. But which one first?!
