The youth at my church did a dinner theater production tonight as a fund raiser that was awesome. I knew three of the kids and it just reminded me of all the events I went to showcasing student talents when I was teaching. I knew so many very talented kids that could have been professionals. Unfortunately, most of them never got a chance. Two that I knew did become professional opera singers and three became major league baseball players, but there were many others who had the talent. It makes me proud to see so many young people with so much talent.
My mom told me about this game show on Fox and the last two Thursdays I watched it. Last week I was NOT smarter than a fifth grader. I did not know Venus was the brightest planet (Duh, I thought it was Jupiter) and I did not know what a rhombus was. All the others I knew. I am happy to report that this week I was at least as smart as a fifth grader. I knew them all...even the math ones, which I usually don't even pretend to know. WooHOO!!!
