We are pretty proud of Tyler right now (and he’s pretty proud of himself, too).
There are about 120 kids in Year 5 at his school, and all of them are involved in the Year 5 production (in some way, shape or form). Tyler has a small speaking role, which he was very excited to get. The show is called “What a Knight” and the kids have been working really hard on their lines, songs, costumes, props and stage sets. There’s just under a month until the performances.
ALL the kids in year 5 had to design a logo, and the best would be chosen to put on the front of the official production T-shirt. The shirts will be worn by all the kids in the chorus (and backstage, I think). Other kids can also buy a T-shirt as a memento.
Today the winner of the “design a logo” was announced … and it was Tyler! He had been told by a teacher that he was probably going to win, which actually annoyed me a little bit because I didn’t want him to get his hopes up in case it wasn’t him (but at the same time I didn’t want to discourage him or dampen his enthusiasm and excitement). But it WAS him, and he is very, very, very happy!
Here’s the winning design:
I’m sure it will be ‘tweaked’ a little before it gets put on the T-shirt, so I’ll be sure to share a photo of the finished product once it’s ready. I was tempted to buy an extra one since Tyler’s design is on it, but one will just have to do (and he’ll have to look after it).
Proud mama, signing off.
