Last night was Holiday Family Night at Joe’s school. The kids sang two Christmas songs and recited poetry. I am in awe of Joe’s ability to perform in front of a crowd with little to no nervousness. His coloring makes him susceptible to turning 20 shades of red when nervous or embarrassed, like me; but, he barely blushes when he performs. Clearly, he is confident. He gets that from
me his Dad.

Well done! He is so grown up!
Thank you, Carol. He is growing fast!
I think it’s wearing the antlers. 😉
I don’t think – I know. Take off the antlers and you’d see the kid crumble. It’s not pretty.
Wow, Joe had that poem down pat, not a stutter. Great job, Joe.

Thank you, Maxi! Blessings to you, too.
Way to go, Joe! He’s a real trooper – I’d be petrified. Thanks for posting this – I really, really miss those Christmas pageants when the kids were little. Although I guess you’d have to say that they sang Winter Holiday songs, not CHRIST-mas, right?
I would be petrified too, Peg. And, my face would be tens of thousands of shades of red. I was super impressed with his performance. And happily … this was a CHRISTmas family night. Crazy, eh? 🙂
Way to go Joe.
You know how to calm the audience and get their attention.
Congratulations Joe, you did an outstanding job,
Thank you, Libby. I was impressed with his composure.
Bravo, great job, and to have the wits to say thank you! He is collected. Now after that, what does Joe want for Christmas?
Thank you, thank you. He’ll be there all week. (giggle, giggle) Joe wants strawberry milk for Christmas. He aims low. 🙂
High Fives for Joe – great job! 🙂 MJ
Back at you, MJ! And thanks!
Great job, Joe! When we were about Joe’s age, our grandfather would give us a poem to memorize to “perform” for him at our next visit. Joe did a great job.
Really? Did you love that or hate it? I think that is neat, Patti. Makes for great memories.
I don’t think I enjoyed the reciting part much, but I appreciate now the schoolteacher in him who tried to stretch our horizons.
