How to....

Give a great performance:

1. Clap your hands.

2. Take a minute to appreciate the crowd...let them appreciate you.

3. Clap some more.

4. Wave your hands in the air.

5. Do the Chicken Dance...(those are his wings...can you tell?)

This boy surprised us all at his end of year program at school...

Honestly, he's one of the youngest in the class, and not the biggest boy either. We thought he'd be shy or just stand there in awe of all those people watching.

But, this boy, who is so much like is Daddy in most ways, has a bit of him Mom in him. He loves to sing and dance and put on a show. I have to say I was so proud I cried.

I cannot stop smiling at this little, little guy, who started to bounce the minute he heard the beat and concentrated so hard on all the moves and the words.

And the crowds don't seem to phase him all that much. There was certainly no fear, just a bit of curiosity.

He stopped mid-performance to check everyone out. But, then he got right back to the business of the Chicken Dance, Itsy-Bitsy Spider and Head-Shoulders-Knees-and-Toes.

And now, at last, I understand what all those hand gestures and singing were about at home...he was practicing!

Peace, everyone!

And I could totally tell those were wings - we're big fans of the Chicken Dance around here =)

He is too adorable for words, Felecia. You make good looking kids.
