Maddox's Father's Day Show

Yesterday Maddox performed in his father's day show. Original I was not going to send him to school because Lee is in the US and I didn't want Maddox to be sad that his dad wasn't there.
When I picked Maddox up from school the day before the show I told his teacher "remember Maddox won't be here tomorrow." She said "oh no, I have to have him here! He is my helper with the songs and I will talk to him and explain that he's my helper. We will do a special show for his dad when he gets back but PLEASE he's the one that sings loud!"
With reluctance I said ok and quickly called Mark, our designated team "Uncle, fill in dad, friend etc.." He has had to step in on a few occasions and has been VERY gracious to do so. It also helps that our kids LOVE "Tio Mark."

I will let the videos speak for themselves but MAN his teacher was not laying! I know I'm completely bias but I think Maddox stole the show on this one. It helps that the songs are in English and he's the only English speaker but I have to say he was hangin with the best of them on the Spanish stuff too! Don't be surprised if Maddox turns up in a Peruvian made film in the next couple of years:) Enjoy!

P.S. Happy Father's Day to all the awesome dad's out there. Somehow I got blessed to be surrounded by the best dad's I know-my own dad, my father-in-law and of course the father of my children. You guys are incredible and all of us "kids" are incredibly blessed you call you our dads! Love you

Agreed. Maddox stole the show. First, he can certainly project his voice! And, he knows English pretty well ;-) But even his Spanish was just as good as the other kids!
