Eric has been doing theater this year and has enjoyed it so much. It's a lot of work, but he's getting his best grades in all his classes ever, and having fun at the same time. I am also happy because it helps with the sting of lonliness he has for his brothers.
Last night we went to his performance of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing". Eric did a great job and it was so fun watching him perform. It was a little weird that he played a drunken womanizer, though. At least he got to stretch himself! There weren't enough guys in theater, so several girls had to play men. They all did such a great job and I really appreciate his teacher for spending so much time with these students. It was also fun watching our friend Chance, who we've known since he was about 4 years old. He's grown into such a nice young man and such a good actor.
We're super proud of Eric and all his hard work. He has always been a ham and loved to be the center of attention. Whatever he chooses to do in life, he will do it well.
