Welcome to a very special edition of Bradley's Brain!

This past Friday, both of my sons participated in the talent show at their school.

Of course I recorded it (some day when they're both rich and famous, everyone can say "This is where it all started"), and have now gotten around my technological incompatibilities and figured out how to get the videos on this "You-tube" thing all the kids are so crazy about these days.

Without further ado, may I present the talented youth of Clan Leslie:

First up is Blake, who performed in a Mexican Hat Dance with a few other kids from his kindergarten class. Blake is the one that starts out in the very back on the left:

Next up is Hunter, who sang "Weird Al" Yankovic's Since You've Been Gone.
I have to admit that when he said he wanted to sing in the talent show, I said, "Okay, Buddy, that sounds cool." When he told me he wanted to sing a "Weird Al" song, I got a little teary-eyed and said, "That's my boy..."

Keep in mind, he's nine, this was his first ever solo act on stage, and he was very nervous. Even though it can sometimes be a bit difficult to hear him over Al's vocals, I think he did a fantastic job.

So there you have it; the first stop on Hunter and Blake's journey to stardom.

Just in case you can't tell, I'm insanely proud of both of them.

They have always been, and always will be, my Superstars.

Thanks for reading my ranting,


  1. I love it!! You are a great father and pretty good at techy stuff!!! There are lots of folks who don't know what a Blog is!!! We are going to be teaching KidsBlog in a week or so!!!

    Thanks for including me Brad!!! Great Job!!!


  2. Hahahaha! They are adorable! You rock in getting this recorded. I've got my son's class's part in the Christmas concert. Not as good a recording as yours, but it was cute. You've got a great pair of boys there, easy to see why you're so proud of them. Weird Al, gotta love it.
