Time To Get Out Of The House, 70's This Week!

We spent Fathers Day at my parents. My sister, brother in law, niece and brother also came. It was nice just sitting around talking. Amazingly no practical jokes were played. I once stuck a video camera around the corner when my brother was in the bathroom. He didn't find it as amusing as the rest of us. Someone is usually hiding around the corner, so we are always a little cautious walking around the house. My sister made baked beans with a new ingredient which was really good. Someone told her to try Lipton Onion Soup in the recipe and it was really good. I picked up an ice cream cake. We haven't had one of those in ages.

This week younger son started his two week summer drama group. It was for kids from 5th grade through high school. They were expecting more kids and had a play picked out for 20. They ended up with a group of 8 or 9 and younger son is the only boy. They switched the play to, "The Real Story of Little Red Riding Hood". He loves the part he was given! He plays the wolf which is a large roll to memorize in less then two weeks. They are doing 5 songs and younger son performs one on his own. A dream come true:) We are stating his costume tomorrow. The group is also doing all their own set and back drops. They start painting tomorrow. I was impressed with the women running it. She and her husband just move here from New York and she was on stage until she had more then one child and decided to give it up and teach. She does drama, voice and piano. Younger son may start voice with her in the fall depending on the prices. I would like him to do at least one semester to get some background on voice. It is a small group and younger son is the oldest, but it will be a great experience for him to have one of the leading rolls in a musical and get to sing a solo! It is fun to see him so excited.

Today when we came home from the drama group we were in a hurry because his music teacher would be at our house around the same time we would be. When we came home younger son set up and warmed up and then we waited and waited and waited some more. It took us about an hour and a half to remember for the summer his lessons are changed to Wednesdays! Oh well, we will do it over again tomorrow.

The weather here is beautiful this week! Today is 72 and mostly sunny. The rest of the week in the 70's too! This is my kind of weather. I did get my car back from the repair shop and the air seems to be finally fixed. I have a year warranty on it, but it is such a pain to keep bringing it back in. I am hoping it holds together and I don't have any more leaks!
