Talent Show 08′


This morning, we headed out as a family to my sons elementary school for the annual talent show.

Things you can expect…
-The school comedian making everyone laugh.
-The sweet little girl that can’t be heard, cause you can’t turn the music low enough to hear he.
-The broadway star, who’s mom does the entire routine with her to the side of th stage.
-The young kid that took up piano last week.

Now in the midst of all of this, there are lots of smiles and sweet moments.

Then there is my son. Yes, I am proud of him. He has worked hard at what he does. He practices everyday. He has a natural talent that he understands and wants to make better. He is good and he stood out. He was chosen to close the show today.

It is my pleasure to give you my 11 year old son, Dakota, playing drums to Reliant K’s “More Than Useless”.
