Allegra is a born performer and loves the spotlight. That made her big adventure last Friday with the Maple Grove choir a dream come true for her. Papa was kind enough to take her (James was working) to the Idaho Stampede (in the NBA development league) basketball game, where she and her choirmates sang the national anthem prior to the game. They enjoyed all the festivities, including food, and she game home with lots of tales to tell and a whole bunch of signatures on her Stampede calender (from a random assortment of folks including players, the mascot, a cheerleader, her music teacher, and someone who was working as a vendor that night who attends our church LOL). It's hard to tell, but she's in the middle row, close to center, with the yellow headband.
