Dads and Donuts

In honor of Father's Day, Elle's Kindergarten class put on a "Dads and Donuts" performance today. Elle was sooo excited she could hardly stand it. I was in charge of bringing some of the donuts and as we were in the donut shop this morning she told every person in there what we were ordering the donuts for. As we were driving to school she said, "mom, my cheeks are hurting from smiling so much. I am so excited." They wore western attire because they performed to the songs, "Boot Scootin' Boogie" and Reba McIntyre's, "Why Haven't I heard from You" complete with cell phone props in their pockets (Elle's favorite part). It was 100% adorable. My favorite part was watching Elle and Jon. Elle didn't take her eyes off of her daddy the entire performance. She was so proud that he was there for her. She presented him with an art project she made for him that had the words, "My dad likes______".
Here is how she filled it out in her own spelling:

My dad likes: me
My dad likes: gofing
My dad likes: bing a gud dad
My dad likes: spending time with me
My dad doesn't like: bing a bad dad
