It feels like deja vu all over again…
Another week, another concert! Just like last week we were hanging out at a school with many of the same parents again. Instead of listening to our kids play strings we listened to our kids sing. Seriously, about the only things that felt different were the seats (no padding tonight) and which of our boys were sitting next to us while we watched the other. Just like last week one of our boys was within talking distance of one of the Lyga boys!
All kidding aside, it was a ton of fun between talking with parents and hearing the kids. There’s something fun about watching the kids all walk up, get on stage and do their thing. You can really start to see their personalities coming out. It’s so interesting to see them and think back to when I was a kid and try to figure out which one of Gavin’s friends will be like which of my friends. Crazy seeing them develop into people.
One of the things I was most greatful for was Gavin’s speaking ability. While I have to constantly focus on slowing down and watching my pace, Gavers nailed it! He stayed slow and steady, had obviously memorized and practiced his lines, and had no sense of nervousness in his voice. It was so cool to watch him do so well. Throw in him having fun and it was a pretty successful concert.
Back in the day (before kids) I would’ve thought going to a concert like this was crazy and not a good use of time. Now, as a dad, I can’t imagine not wanting to go. It’s so much fun on so many levels, I’m glad I went and I’m glad Gavin had a great time.
