Perfect Day For Some Michael…

Hello my loves!!!! I hope you guys are having a wonderful day. We have been blessed for the last couple of days in NYC because the weather has been AMAZING! Sunny Breezy and in the 70’s…life is good!
Today was the 6th Annual Festival at my niece’s and little sister’s school and it was a Tribute to Michael Jackson…
The Principle kicked off the show…
The show started with the PreK students dancing to “Wanna be Startin’ Something”
Kindergarten (little sister’s grade) did “Shake Your Body Down to the Ground”
Hailey’s Grade (1st) did “Black or White”
3rd Grade did “Smooth Criminal”
4th grade danced to “Beat It”
They ended the show with the 5th graders performing “THRILLER!”
It was a great show!
