I’ve spent too much time bragging about myself recently so now it’s time to brag about one of my kids. This week, Drew learned that he got an “Award of Excellence” in the state-wide Texas PTA Reflections competition in the musical composition category. This is, apparently, equivalent to second place which, given that this was the very first song he’s ever written, strikes me as a pretty significant result. Way to go, Drew!
He wrote and composed his song, “Everybody’s Different”, then performed it complete with ukulele accompaniment. The song is great but I bet the judges were swayed by the Elvis-style flourish at the very end 🙂
