The Professor

Found out my DS has gotten a part in the 4th grade school play! Exciting? Yes. Scary? Yes. If you know him, you know for years he couldn't look anyone in the eye while they talked to him, he rarely did the talking! I used to warn teachers that if you raised your voice the least little bit, he'd be reduced to tears, like mother like son. He was so shy, up until lately. He let me know that in kids church he gets up on stage!!! WHAT??? He looks forward to it! This morning he said, "I'll probably have to be up on stage again" rolling his eyes like it was going to be a real chore! Deep down I could see he was hoping that was the case! So, he got the part of Professor John Spiritus Baptismo. He has 6 pages of lines. It is a musical, "The School of Life", a High School Musical of sorts, though one with a message! I will work with him on lines but I'd appreciate prayer from now until showtime, April 24th. He's thinking how cool it'll be, but being on that stage with an auditorium of parents staring at you is a different story! I'll be a nervous wreck for him that night! I'm going to do my best and see he's prepared! Thanks! I'll record this momentous event for sure and share here later!

Go, DS! I know you are so proud of him for going outside of his comfort zone with the stage and this part. I'm sure he'll be amazing! Showtime is the day before my birthday. I can't wait to see the video. :)

Reading this reminded me of my son. He used to be incredibly shy (still is to a certain degree). But, every year since 3rd grade, he comes out of his shell a little more. His sister is also incredibly shy but she's remained in that shell. And she's crazy about theatre. Go figure!
