Bryn and Blake's school had their talent show tonight and it was great. Their school has so much talent! There were three categories; solo, duo, and classes. The solo category was comprised of all vocal solos with the exception of one instrumental solo. To be honest, I didn't think Bryn would place at all because there weren't any monitors on the stage and her track was run so soft she couldn't hear it when she was singing and she lost her timing in one place. I thought Blake would place because he had the "whole package." Cute, worked the stage, and sang well. However, there was a girl who I thought had just as good if not better vocals than Blake and the competition was going to be stiff. When it was all said and done, we had several people approach us and complain at the results. First place was given to a girl who cheated by lip syncing half her song. Then, Bryn was awarded second place and Blake third. I am very proud of both of them, but Blake really did a better job than his sister. They were very good sports and just happy for the opportunity to sing, but I think they learned competitions are much like politics and corruption happens. As long as I can keep Bryn and Blake honest and always doing their best, I will feel successful.
P.S. The last picture is not clear, but I thought it was amusing to see the "streak of red" on the top of Blake's head. LOL
EDIT: To answer Helen's question, Bryn sang "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie" and Blake sang "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You" from Elvis.
