Jake got the lead in his school play, “the rumpus in the rainforest”.

Since I’m guessing you have never seen/heard of it. Here’s the scoop:

  • It’s about a frog that wants to go see the top of the canopy of the rain forest. However, he can’t figure out how to get there, since his best friend -the Toucan- has a broken wing. So Jake (or the frog) goes in search of anyone who can take him there (jaguars, humans, snakes, monkeys, sloths, army ants, you name it)- most of which refuse for one reason or another or are too dangerous to trust, cuz they might eat the frog. Things are finally fixed with some herbal jungle doctor person gives the toucan a natural remedy and heals her broken wing and she can now take her friend the frog to see “up beyond the trees, just once”.

Anyway, I got to see it this morning. He put his big personality to the test. Shannon might have just found her actor in the family. He can dance. He can sing. He loves to do the moves. Kid has been like that since birth. So cute to hear him get excited about it.

Here’s a few pics for you. Way to go Jake!!!
