Yesterday was the big recital, and Cody did FANTASTIC! He exceeded my expectations, actually. During the rehearsal, he hedged a bit and said he wanted to "save it" for the real thing, but I conviced him of the importance of practicing first to warm up. He did great.
He had asked, since he played the Superman Theme, if it was alright with me if he wore his Superman costume. I couldn't resist. I mean, you're only five once!
He got up there when it was his turn with confidence (although he had requested that I be nearby just in case he forgot where to put his fingers). Truth be told, he didn't need me at all! He did awesome. I was so incredibly proud of him!
And in true gentleman form....THE BOW:
My amazing friend, Diane, made the cake and handled all the reception details. Didn't she do a fantastic job?
And here's the pround mama...though I should have taken a picture with Superman. He was too busy flying around somewhere!
Have a great day!
