Special Talent

Sis #2 is starting to get into all the extra curricular activities at school. She's fits her.

She tried recently for class president (I guess they have those in 4th grade now). She didn't make it. And she was okay with that.

The next was the talent show. She broadcasted it to everyone that she was trying out. She was going to sing.

Singing does not run in the Sissy family by a long shot.

She decided she was going to sing Delta Dawn. Unfortunately, she was butchering it so with the help of my parents, it was decided she should pick another song.

She then decided on "Oops, I Did It Again", a Britney Spears song. She was practicing in front of my parents and was actually doing pretty good. Until she started shaking her hips and dancing. That when my dad piped up with, "You can't do this song. My 8 year old daughter is not going to be shaking her hips up on stage." So that song was out.

She then decided on "Grand Old Flag". She wanted to make it a big production with old suitcases, a dance routine, the whole works.

Try outs were Tuesday and there were only 12 slots open.

She didn't make it.

But they did give her a "special singer" position. I'm questioning their definition of "special".

She's cute, and I'm sure that's what won them over. The other kids that didn't make it did not get a "special" position.

My stepmom made the point that they would have to adjust their vacation a couple of days if she made it. They were going to shave 2 days off their trip to Florida because she has a 45 second spot in the talent show.

It's hilarious! And I'm driving up there to see it next Friday. Yes we are video taping it. I'll see what I can do to get it posted. I think it'll be that funny!

Next she's trying out for some Academic Contest. This should be good too...
