Jack Sings

Did you know that I am living with a rockstar? Jack wrote a song about summer (remember the "airband"?)

Well, he actually wrote a song (sung initially to the tune of "hey there dahlila") and his uncle andy came up with some new tunage for Jack's words. It's phenominal. (if I do say so myself... mom pride bursting out here)

The reason I am sharing this, you ask? Because Jack goes back to school Tomorrow.... and when his teacher asks, "what did you do this summer?" Jack is going to say, "I wrote a rock song and sung it in front of people...." How cool is that?!?!?!? He performed it with Uncle Andy and his cousins Brigham and Ellie at a coffee shop tonight. (Brig and Ellie helped with the chorus) Jack received the loudest applause.

We made a small recording of the performance and are currently trying to upload it to youtube. I'd love for everyone to revel in my 8 year old's writing ability.... I think he is fabulous. I'll post a link as soon as we get it up and running. xx, kris
