Busy Weekend

Wow!  We made it!  It was a really crazy weekend following a super busy week.  Alice, Paige and Mason have been practicing for Mary Poppins, Jr. since December and it was finally play weekend.  Both sets of grandparents came up for the weekend to support our budding thespians.  They even went to two performances just to make sure they saw all the kids perform!  Whew!

It was a fun weekend but boy are we tired now!  All three of the kids did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be prouder of them!

Alice…Winifred Banks and Bird Woman

Paige…roof dweller, kite flyer and townsperson

Mason…Michael Banks

The cast warming up.  These kids are amazing.  Over a hundred local kids audition and 53 were chosen.

This production was double cast so Alice played Winifred Banks in the first two performances and Bird Woman in the second two shows.  She was fantastic as both characters.

On top of the play, we also celebrated Paige’s confirmation this weekend. She has been working for about 6 weeks with some other youth to get ready.  Along with play practice, Paige has made this a priority this spring.

A very blustery Sunday morning….

Paige with her youth leader, Tyson and his wife, Andrea.  These two people are like family to us!  They love our kids and are wonderful examples of love and light.  We are beyond blessed to have them in all our lives.

It’s been nice tonight to relax a bit and enjoy some down time.  I think it might be my bedtime very soon!  Hoping to post more play pics soon.

Happy Monday,

Jennifer
