Weekly Wrap Up

This was one of those weeks that you just had to hold on tight and make to Friday. The first part of the week revolved around preparing for the first day of Cooperative, then doctor's appointments, a going away party, and fitting school in where we could.

Our first day of Cooperative was awesome. Lots of new families and students to meet with 36 families participating this semester. All the students seemed to have a good time so hopefully they will all be back next week and we can move on with the remainder of the semester. Grace was excited to find out that she got the part of Olivia in Twelfth Night. The high school class will be performing a Night of Shakespeare in November. This will include three spoofs of Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Hamlet while Twelfth Night is a shortened version. Much work ahead of us in memorizing lines while the elementary students will be preparing for the Aristocats to perform in December.

One of our fellow Acts of Faith performers is going to Tanzania for missionary work and won't return until January. Yesterday there was a going away party for her to wish her well. Great kid that will be missed. Praying for her safety and success with her mission.
