My 9 year old delivered his first speech in class yesterday. He did great. He had to study an American Hero and give a speech as if he were that person. I won't assume that he chose John Glenn strictly for the costume potential. I'll let myself believe (for the most part) that he values Glenn's hard work, bravery, innovation and the ability to realize so many different firsts in one small lifetime.
But the costume did turn out pretty great. And it looked awful fun to wear.
Funniest part- He started out by introducing himself.... As Glonn Jen. And I didn't even laugh out loud. Proud of me?
