Epic Patty Cake Song (I’ll Think of You) – Jacob and Mikaela

Add patty caking to Jake’s list of talents: Jacob and Mikaela performed their epic version of the epic song performed by Kurt Schneider, Sam Tsui, Alex G, and Alyson Stoner.

Footage is from the Spirit year-end gathering at St. Paul Parish on Friday, June 19.

Pretty impressive coordination and concentration for a couple of 11 year-olds!

Then, this past Monday, I received an email from Boyd stating that Sean’s award would be a “major” one and thus we were encouraged to attend.  Needless to say, we got very excited and proceeded to spend the next couple of days speculating as to what award(s) he might win for his grade 8 year.

You need to be clutch.

Let the good times roll
