Ryan has been sitting on the sidelines for a while now watching his big brother play soccer, T-ball, choir concerts, etc. He takes his job very seriously, always waiting to listen to Luke to make sure he is ok and doesn’t need anything. But today, Ryan had his spring pre-school concert. The teachers and I didn’t really think Ryan would make it on stage. He does not have a very good record. But we have been talking about it so there was a little bit of hope. It’s not that Ryan doesn’t like to sing, dance or preform. That is all he does at home. He just can’t do it in front of people. But I am happy to say he made it on stage. He waved. He smiled. I think at the beginning before the music started he was thinking about ducking behind the podium so no one could see him just like he did last year.
But when the music started, he didn’t run away, he didn’t duck behind any thing….. he stayed on that stage and sang his little heart out. He wasn’t as loud as he sings at home or at church but he did sing and do all of the hand actions with a smile on his face. If he can master his nerves, this boys is going to be one great performer.
