I received a last minute invitation to attend the annual 2nd grader's circus at Buckman Elementary last Wednesday. All the second-graders at Buckman were featured! Unfortunately for my photographer's soul it was so crowded when I arrived (well ahead of the start time), I had to sit far back from the stage. But the nana in me got plenty of teary, throat-knotted "verklempt" moments watching the sweet, rambunctious innocence of all the clownfaced performers. Perfect.
