This afternoon was drama practice for our school musical. I think I mentioned that Amanda and I are directing this year's drama with the help of our friend Tina. Neither of us have a theater background but I think we are putting together a really nice production. I've been working on this while planning the race, but now that the race is over the musical has my full attention. We are painting our set tomorrow night and I'm excited to see it all come together.
Lucy had a ballgame and Ella had her competition team tryout. I'm happy to report that both girls did great. Ella has never cheered before but it seemed to come fairly naturally for her tonight. We will find out Thursday which team she has made.
Lucy played with her team tonight and had a lot of fun. Please don't freak out Tracy or Dr. W. She hit off of the tee and there is no play on her hit. She is the last batter and the team just lets her run to first base. I know it doesn't mean anything to the outcome of the game but this little girl feels amazing being part of this team. I am so grateful for my friends who are coaching. They are going out of their way--actually, the whole league is--to make her feel "normal." She tires easily and her legs ache when she's done. Tonight she ran from home to first base 3 times (really slowly) and hurt every step of the way. Lucy is so tough and she didn't let it get the best of her. I'm so proud of my baby girl.
Who knows what God has planned for my precious boy. I can tell you this for sure, though. He is destined for greatness.
