As many of you know my son has been home-schooled these past couple of years. But being the social guy that he is, I wanted him to be able to participate in other activities with kids his own age. One of the activities that I signed him up for this year was with a group called Christian Youth Theater. This is the first time he has participated in it. During the first 10 weeks of school he has been taking an acting class. He is a kid that is oozing with personality and acting seemed the obvious choice. He loves it! Last night was his "show case" where they were able to show what they have learned over the past 10 weeks. He had to perform lines from Shakespeare and also another play, "The Importance of Being Ernest". He did so well! I'm so proud of him. I didn't get a good picture of him up on the stage but here is one right before the program started. I could never have performed in front of people when I was in high school. I would have just died!
These kids did a great job! I didn't have him audition this time for the production of Anne of Green Gables. I wasn't ready to sign my life away with all the requirements for which each parent is responsible. But I told him he could audition for the winter show which will be "The Chronicles of Narnia". I know he is looking forward to it.
Yesterday was a fun day! I didn't have to work because of Veteran's Day so I was busy crafting. My best hours are in the morning and I was able to get so much done. It was wonderful! I stayed in my PJ's until 12:00. I drank a lot of coffee and did a lot of crafting.
Quite a few months ago my #1 and I went to one of our favorite stores and came away with some wonderful and large chandelier prisms. We only paid a $1.00 for each! I wasn't sure what I would do with them but a Christmas project was on the horizon. So yesterday I pulled them out and started sprucing them up for Christmas. Here is a picture of the final product. Sweet crystal ornaments!
If you look deep within all that ribbon you will see the crystal prisms.
Thank you for stopping by!
