My oldest dd, Maiah, a freshman, was in performances of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)" at the local public high school this week. Though we homeschool, she takes an art class at the local ps, so is eligible to be in the play. She was Juliet and did a fantastic job, though I say so myself. Everyone said so. The Lord has given her a talent and passion for acting and it will be exciting to see where it takes her. Right now, she is wanting to pursue an acting career on Broadway.....definitely theatre and not film. She is at the cast party now....a nervous thing for this mama...her first co-ed party. She is growing up fast!

A tree and a van

What do these have in common? Cutting down the first enabled us to buy the second. Or I should say, "is enabling" b/c we haven't actually bought a van yet. I am going to look at a 12 passenger Chevy Express tomorrow with my dad. It is burgundy....so excited for that color! I know color isn't sooo important, but I've wanted a burgundy for forever! The price is great and we will even have some leftover.
Now, if you are a tree-hugger environmentalist person, please don't leave nasty comments about me cutting down trees. It was a hard decision, but one we think the Lord led us to.
