The community circus

It has been a while since I have been to the blogging site I have not had the minute to sit down.  I wish I would have because all the time I have not been on here nearly daily we were having wonderful memories I want to record for my memory and our history.

As I mentioned before, Memorial Day week was great, I had so much fun.  But I never got to share the best part of it.  To back track earlier that week all of us went to Ringling brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus and had a great time.  We all really enjoyed the show and it was still very fresh in our minds.  Surprisingly it still is almost a month later.

Gregory had a chance to be in a community circus.  The opportunity came unexpectedly and fast but he was more than happy to do it and we were so excited to watch.

A group of kids had the chance to participate in a 3-4 hour master circus class tought by Ben Sota of Pittsburgh’s Zany Umbrella Circus.  He was such a nice guy and clicked beautifully with the kids.  He also studied his trade at the San Francisco Circus Center, the Trapeze Arts School and Acro Sports, and recently earned his PhD.  I did know you could get a doctorate in being a clown?

Mema and Pepa came to watch Gregory.

He is the one in the middle of the picture with the mask, Mr. Clown.

And his first performance

A bit goofy.

But his second preformance blew us away.  He is so fantastic and talented

He was so proud we all were.  He has never done anything like before.

They all did excellent.  What a cool experience.  And he loved it too.
