I forgot to note the highlight of last week: Patrick made his stage debut in the school production of The Lion King.
Kids surprise you. Participating in the play was entirely Patrick’s initiative. Not only did he choose to be in the play, he knew which character he wanted to be: Ed, the silly hyena who doesn’t talk. Memorizing his “lines” couldn’t have been easier. He had three: Two “hee hee hee!”s and one “huh?” He apparently scowled better than the other hyenas. Early in rehearsal, the director complained that the other hyenas were too nice and told them to act more like Patrick.
If he grows up to be the next Rupert Grint, you can say you saw him here first!
