I'm Going to A-merry-ca

Eddie had a solo tonight in his 4th grade school musical, "Letters Tell the Tale: From Settlement to Revolution." He did so wonderfully! We couldn't be more proud!

Here's a video of his singing--you won't have to wait long, he's the very first singer. It's worth watching the whole video though (because it's short, for one), but also because it's funny to watch the three boys wrestle with the mic at the end of the performance.

The kids performed all kinds of musical numbers relating to the settlement and creation of our country. They even covered the uncomfortable chapter of slavery with admirable honesty. It was hilarious though, to see our lily white population of children singing "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen." Yeah, somebody stole their fruit roll-up... nobody knows their trouble!
