Geek chic

Spencer had a program last week at school commemorating Martin Luther King. The music teachers must have told the kids to dress up because when I was helping Spencer find something to wear, he asked me if he had a tuxedo. When I told him that he didn't, he wondered if he could wear his tie and sport coat. I told him he could wear a tie, but the sport coat might be a little much. Most of the kids in the show were dressed nicely. The majority of girls had dresses on. The boys had nice sweaters. Spencer and I think one other kid had ties on. A couple kids had on hoodie sweatshirts. Apparently, they didn't listen to the "dress up" instructions. There are always a few it seems.

Here are Spencer's eight and a half year old answers to his interview.

I thought the little "geek" looked adorable at the MLK program. I was very proud of my grandchild ---seeing him look so handsome in a nice shirt and tie.

Cute answers, Spence!
