Why is that child flailing?  

The boys went to theatre camp last week and had a great time.  The camp was based on the works of Eric Carle, and at the end of the week there was a little program inclding productions of The very Quiet Cricket, The Very Hungry Catterpillar, and a rousing rendition of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You See?

Be patient.  It really takes off after 'white dog'.  My youngest son is the one with what looks like epilepsy, but is really just enthusiasm.  Ethan is standing behind him and to the right a bit, reciting normally...

I'm no Speilberg.  I was laughing too hard.  And yes, that is my husband asking me if our son smoked crack before the performance.

I wish my sound on flash would work. ;_;

I don't think you need the sound to truly appreciate the weird.

Too cute! Boys are funny. My nephew Pike is very animated, too. They just can't hold in the excitement!

I honestly don't think he was showing out, either. He was just being him!

*dissolves into giggles* Aaron is so adorable, I couldn't stop laughing! What did he say afterwards? Or didn't anyone say anything about it to him?
Carrie Leigh: Ethan=Little Dracocarrie_leigh on June 26th, 2007 02:27 pm (UTC)
He didn't know he'd done anything out of the ordinary. He was just doing his Aaron thing. It probably would've embarrassed him if we'd said anything.

What a hoot - I was cracking up at 'Spazz-boy'!

I know. Trying to hold a camera steady wasn't easy.

That was hilarious. Getting into the groove he was. Favorite part though was hearing hubby's crack remark. Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad other people think it's funny, too. He's a great dancer, as well, especially to Young MC, unfortunately.

One of the funniest thing I have ever seen.

SOOO glad it's not just my Scott that does things like that! HA HA HA!

Yay for other people's kids being extroverts, as well!

Wow...I am SO sorry I didn't get to see Aaron doing that.

But you weren't there when he was making the animal noises after every recitation...My, oh my. And, of course, he had the hand movements added to it. Bob Fosse....ON CRACK! *Jazz Hands*
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on June 26th, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
Can you see Aaron, grown, teaching Fosse?

"No, you incompetent, it's 'purple cat'... step step turn... Oh, here. I'll just do it myself."

I thought the whole show was really cute, actually. Thanks for helping out! And the boys had a great time at the park the other day with Chelsea... Ethan still has on the tattoo she gave him. He said, "She's a cool little girl." He's so worldly.

I don't thing that Aaron's gifts are being used to their fullest with the Carle recitation. Can we get him performing for a mosh pit? I love it that I can hear Nolan giggling behind the camera. It made me miss y'all even more. What is the status on a visit to CO?
Carrie Leigh: Ethan=Little Dracocarrie_leigh on June 26th, 2007 02:35 pm (UTC)
He's gonna be that kid who's in a band and living with us til he's 30.

No, he's not.

I dunno. I'll talk to NK.
