sara's play

Last night, Jeff and I went to see Sara in her school play. The junior department did two performances on successive nights. Jeff and I attended the second night. We showed up an hour early to make sure we got good seats...the first row had already been filled by the time we arrived. One mother commented that we were going to be waiting for longer than the duration of the play itself. :-)

'Twas well worth the wait, however. Sara's first grade class were seated all along the front so they could be seen. Jeff and I got seats in the second row, right in front of Sara. Ruth had told me where to sit, since she, Kaarel and Annie had gone the night before. Apparently Annie was so excited to see her sister in the play that she hummed along loudly on all the songs (she knew all the music, of course, having heard Sara practise at home).

I was bursting with pride, watching her up there on the stage. She seemed so confident, so poised. From time to time she would look in our direction, as if to make sure Jeff and I were still there, and give a huge gap-toothed grin.

Scott Murray came to visit a couple of nights ago. We got take-out pizza and watched "Army of Darkness" on DVD. Very silly, very entertaining movie. :-) Have any of you seen it?

No Blatherings until next week...Jeff and I are going up to the cottage again this weekend, this time with his parents. We've gotten word that the ice is much safer now.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
