This week has been really crazy busy. School was accomplished Monday - Thursday. The craziness stems from lots of drama rehearsals. Monday was our big dress rehearsals 3:30 - 8:30. Lots was accomplished. Wednesday afternoon held another practice and yesterday (Thursday) was the big day. Arrived for more practice at 3:30, everyone broke for dinner around 5:00, then on to makeup and costumes to prepare for the performance at 7:00. One of our stage hands was running a temp. so I had to step in and help set up all the scenes. This drama group consisted of 6th - 12th graders. They really did a great job. We have one more performance today at 1:30 then we are done for awhile. Of course we do have auditions on Monday and Tuesday of next week for Alice in Wonderland, but practices will not start until after Christmas. On a much sadder note we got word yesterday that my husband's uncle died in a very tragic work related accident. Scott left early this morning for the out of town funeral and probably won't return until some time next week. We are hoping to talk his mother in to coming back with him for a visit to get her mind off of everything that has just happened. She was very close to her brother and this was such a shock for everyone. Her husband died about 12 years ago and she lives alone. Please pray for comfort and understanding for their entire family.
