    Benjamin Franklin

    Monday, April 30, 2012

    Benjamin's class at school put on a memorable night of performances by "Famous People" last week. Each child picked a famous person to portray at an event called "Writer's Cafe." Benjamin went with someone who shares his name, Benjamin Franklin. Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunt, Cousin and Godfather all made it out to watch him do a very excellent job. We also saw performances from such notables as Pope John Paul II, Barack Obama, Marco Polo, Helen Keller, Marie Antoinette and others.

    Of note - I used my oft neglected theatre degree to help build his costume and wig. It was so fun to throw everything together with him.
