Bill, you're obviously fearless!
Bea, I'm with you...couldn't handle a parachute/skydive jump!
Captain Andy had a meltdown yesterday. He came to school dressed in sweatpants and a long sleeved shirt, and was sweating and uncomfortable. We had practice onstage, and he did a great job (although he was obviously uncomfortable). At the end, I added the dance, and picked dancers. We practiced it--two concentric circles going in opposite directions--with a dos-y-dos (sp?) at the "la, la, la, la, la's" of the song. We picked kids for the dance who didn't have other main roles.
Captain Andy had apparently planned on being in the dance, and he had a huge meltdown--waling and crying. He was so upset, he was willing to give up his Captain Andy role (too late for that! YIKES...this is such a risky move...what if he refuses to perform when he sees the audience! Wish us luck!)
I guess if I had known that he wanted to be in the dance, I'd have put him in, to avoid this problem. I called his father, to see if he can intervene at home, but if worse came to worse, I may put the soldiers in just to avoid a disaster.
I'll let you know how it goes! On top of that, our houses (props) are collapsing under the weight of their thatched roofs. I've got some great parents who will come to help out. Let's hope we can get them to stand up during the performance. I don't think the humidity is helping the situation!
Yes, once I'm off on summer vacation, I'll have lots of time to help out here. We're going to Martha's Vineyard the week after school lets out. That will be nice and relaxing. Our two sons are going with us. The one who is married will be coming alone, because his wife has to work that week (don't feel sorry for her...she and her brother just took a trip to visit friends in San Diego! She's a PA, and does a lot of traveling for conferences, etc.). It'll be fun to be together as a foursome/family again! We'll be without internet connection during vacation week...we stay on Chappaquiddick Island--a little island off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. We have to take a little ferry boat whenever we want to visit the main island. There's a great beach on Chappy, and we spend most days there, relaxing and enjoying the surf.
Hope everyone's incisions are healing nicely.
Best wishes for an uneventful recovery from your Nissen. Hope our eating is going well!
Have a great day, everyone!
