Tonight wraps up a very busy and interesting week. Well...it was mostly interesting for Alexa.
It all started a week ago with a HUGE snowstorm that left us with 3 day weekend (of course by now it is mostly gone!). Sunday the folks from Children's Stage Adventures arrived, a few hours earlier than expected. Luckily I was ready for them. I just had to rush home, put my groceries away at warp speed, and head down to the house I rented from my aunt for them. I finished getting things set up and waited for their arrival...with all 3 of my kids. The kids fell in LOVE with Ben and Chandra. Getting them to go home was rough!

Monday was audition day. We learned that afternoon that Alexa got the part of a sprite. She was very excited. Tuesday meant an after school rehearsal, while Wednesday and Thursday involved rehearsals both before and after school. It was an intense 10 hours of learning and practicing for all the kids involved. Today they had a dress rehearsal plus two performances. It was a wonderful play. Seeing the kids faces as they did what they were supposed to do was priceless. And hearing Jake's little laugh at the funny stuff made everyone around us laugh a little.
our little sprite...and no, not the soda ;)
But it wasn't just a busy day for Alexa. The PTO also ran a bake sale during both performances. Which meant setting up and organizing and selling for myself and the other 3 officers. But it was decent fundraiser for the school and very low cost.
Now the kids are snoozing and I had best follow! Our busy weekend has just begun - up for Sunday is my baby sister's wedding!
