PJ and Chorus

Ok, most of you are personal friends and know my boys. You also know the personality of PJ. Very outgoing, very confident about himself, willing to try things, and he is downright cute too. No I am not bias at all.

Anyway, about 2 weeks ago he tried out for choir. She said, 'You have very good pitch' and he went on his way. Last week I kept asking if he had made it, nothing yet. The secretary at the school told me earlier this week we will hear something. Apparently there were so many that tried out that the music teacher needed another week of auditions.

I got a phone call today, "mommy, I made chorus!" Oh how happy I was to hear this. At this point in my life, I hate to say it, I don't have the time to run him around here and there, practice here, show there, you know how it is. Right now, I am so bogged down with work, that chorus will be great for him.

This is a big deal for him. They lost the 5th graders that were in there, and the ones that were in the 3rd and 4th grade automatically get into chorus. There are only a few open slots for the rest of the kids that try out. I know that there were about 75 children that tried out, and only about 25 made it. So, this is a big deal. PJ told me that there were a ton of 3rd graders that made it this year. She carefully selected the ones she wanted.

They aren't taking many field trips this year. Number one reason is because of the fact that there are more 3rd graders than there has been in the past, but gas prices do play a role in this too.

He told me that they do plays too, well, he is good for things like that. He is rather cute, I already said that. He learns lines well and works really hard at this kind of stuff. I am thrilled that he got in this because this can open the door for him in middle school and high school.

The only thing is, he needs to keep his grades up. He cannot get bad grades or we will pull him out of it. And if he is determined enough, well, he will keep his grades up.

So, there will be more to come about my little man. This should be fun!

Yeah PJ! How exciting is that? He's your budding actor/performer! Sounds like he's following in Gillian's footsteps! Watch out Hollywood! ;)
