there was quite a dramatic build-up to the passing out of parts this year and all burrito kept saying was "i just don't want to be the tree, i just don't want to be the tree, any part BUT the tree." i think the picture below pretty much reveals the part he received. there were some initial tears but several sweet friends encouraged him by telling him that the tree has one of the funniest parts in the play. he enters and exits to quite the comical musical accompaniment.
honestly, i think he knew the tree would garner some attention and that is probably why he didn't want THAT part! :)
you did a great job burrito, and we were so proud of you!
