Teddy Bear

The second session of The River proved much easier for me to digest and offered a more relatable theme to Sammy Sue and Noah. This past Friday the children at The River payed homage to Elvis.

I found myself more relaxed this second time around and able to enjoy the performance for what it was, a tribute to each of these children who are the true “queens and kings” of rock.

Noah finally let loose and stole the show, Sammy was more reserved this time around, perhaps she felt bad for overshadowing Noah the last performance.

The highlight of this performance didn’t involve dancing or singing but rather the small yet powerful voice that came from Noah as he left the stage. He knows his name, of course he knows his name. But in the presence of the unfamiliar, loud and overwhelming audience, our confident and fearless little man often looses his voice.

We practiced the night before, “Noah, noah, noah”. It was more of a chant, a reminder of my belief in his abilities.

And then, before his family and one hundred other members of the audience, Noah said it. He was proud of himself and his performance reminded him that he might be performing one of Elvis’ songs, but on Friday afternoon, Noah was the “king”.

HE DID IT!!!!!!!

And then, just because I cannot forget to post this later…… a perfect example of how kids say the funniest things!
