I had the craziest week last week. I think all of the schools decided to plan all of their end of the year performances or celebrations to wear out the parents with more than one child.
This is how my week started.
Hannah had a Garden Club closing party on Monday
Tuesday day, I had a meeting for Camp and Maddie tried out for the "Pride Assembly" ( I am playing piano for her.) That took most of my day. Cassidy had her One Act performance for her Theater 2 class that night, and right after that, I had a budget meeting for camp.
Wednesday Kait had a performance for her acting class she was taking.
That night was Young Women, and I got to help with First Aid Certification.
Thursday Kait and Maddie had school performances on the same night at the same time.
I went to Kait's dress rehearsal during the day.
Maddie's choir performances that night.
First she sang with the choir.
Then a solo. "Lonesome Dove"
A duet that freaked me out!! She sang "A Whole New World". Note the hand holding ! !
Then a trio. They sang "Fugue for Tin Horns" from Guys and Dolls.
Friday I took the day off.
Saturday I had a YCL meeting. A graduation party. Then that evening, Cassidy planned a group date with her friends.
It was busy, but I wouldn't change a thing. My girls are doing wonderful things and loving their lives. I love the fact that they still want me to be a part of what they are doing.
We went as a family to see the musical Wicked last night. It was wonderful. The memories that will stay with me will be; Elphaba's voice. It was incredible even better than the CD. Watching my girls enjoy it. Having Kait saying "That was amazing!" when it was over. Willow and Cassidy grabbing hands at the beginning of "For Good". It is their song. Being surrounded by friends. Watching Maddie talking and laughing with her friends. Last of all, Hannah praying last night, "Thank you that we got to go to Wicked and I got to meet the cast." Yes, Hannah did say "cast". She has been around theater enough to know the proper terms. :)
It was the perfect ending of a great night.
As Hannah said, we did wait outside the stage door to get autographs and pictures. Here are a few.
This Richard H. Blake, he played Fiyero.
He may look familiar, he was Warner in "Legally Blonde".
Glinda and Fiyero signing the girl's programs.
Boq and Cassie's head
The girls minus one, with Donna Vivino (Elphaba). She was incredible.
It was an awesome night! What made it even better was that Brent came also. Little did he know, when we married, that he would by choice go a musical with a family of all girls. Willow (Cassie's friend) was with us, so our van was full of singing, giggling, excited girls. He was smiling the whole way there and home. He is such a good sport and a wonderful Dad.
