I Have a Smart Boy

Wednesday, May 14, 2008
My Smart Boy is a singer, and last night his school had the last choral concert of the season. This year, the Smart Boy lettered in music, and so will be sporting a Letterman's Jacket this coming winter for his senior year of High School.

He also received an additional award - the Choir's Most Improved Singer. While I'm obviously a biased observer, I think he really earned this award. This year, his voice has really matured, gaining a breadth and timbre that was lacking when he was younger. He's also done a good job of developing his ear and learning more theory, so his sight reading skills have really improved as well.

I'm proud of my Smart Boy. I hope he chooses to continue with music when he's in college.

Congratulations! I wander off key while singing, so I'm always impressed by those who have managed to train their voice.

Yay Smart Boy!

From the girl who lettered in Theatre.

Yay for Smart Boy. And everybody knows it's the singer in the band that gets the hot chicks.

Tania, I went to a medieval high school that only allowed lettering in sports. Since I'm not the least bit athletically inclined, that left me kind of ass-out. I'm glad that particular trend changed in time for my own kids.

Darn Tootin', Steve. Although I'm not sure how I'd feel about hot chicks throwing their panties at my Smart Boy...
