He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

Day 203-205

March 5-7, 2017

Sunday was sort of a rest day after the play and then the next few days passed in a blur as we got ready for the next big event- the Dead 2 Red relay/marathon.  More on that later but needless to say, no pictures were taken during these days which were complete blurs!

Day 202

March 4, 2017

Another long day at the theatre for all.  Two performances followed by clean up and cast party.  Great job by everyone and was able to get a few more action shots today during the early performance.

More dressing room fun...

The kids that played the 4 siblings did SUCH a great job!

Maddie getting her game face on.  It was quite a challenge for her not to smile through her oh so serious lines...

When one sister crowns another queen...

Battle scene action

Susan and some woodland creatures...

Day 201

March 3, 2017

Opening night!  Months of hard work really paid off.  Everyone did such a great job!  Abbey played Queen Susan, Maddie was Oreius the head centaur and even Naomi had a small role as a woodland creature.  Everyone worked so hard and the first performance was a huge success. 

Almost all the pics I took this day were behind the scenes because I completely forgot to pull out my camera during the play until the end....

Dressing room goodies

Lucy and Susan

 Sisters primping..

Another fun memory with these two... Oreius and Fox
 And these two, Queen Susan and the White Witch

In character...

Everybody helping everybody else get ready...

And then I got home and got a little nostalgic when I remembered Abbey's 9th Narnia birthday party...

Queen Susan then and now...

Day 200

March 2,  2017

First rehearsal at the theatre for performances starting tomorrow.  I got zero pictures today as I spent most of the day in the car taxiing kids all over tarnation!

Day 199

March 1, 2017

My goodness time is flying!  The long anticipated play is here.  The girls are in their school's production of The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe and couldn't be more excited!  Abbey is playing Susan, Maddie is Aureus, the head centaur and Naomi is a woodland creature...

Day 198

February 28, 2017

Yet another pic of Naomi's Arabic homework...  Exciting times!

Day 197

February 27, 2017

You know you got skills when you can rip-stick and take a selfie at the same time.  Not my genes that's for sure!  

Day 196

February 26, 2017

Well it's not a very exciting picture but it is real life.  I don't know what I'd do without the what's app group for Naomi's class that I can message and ask questions to all the other moms when we're confused about homework!!

Day 195

February 25, 2017

Another community service trip to the Humane Society.  This time we painted rocks for the outdoor garden area, and as always, loved on animals...

Day 194

February 24, 2017

Can't believe it's already time for baseball again!  Love this time of year!!

Day 193

February 23, 2017

For her actual birthday party Naomi invited a few friends from school along with her non-school bestie to go bowling with her.  Picked up a DQ cake along the way- very low maintenance for mom!  Pretty sure some of these girls had never touched a bowling ball in their lives but we had a lot of fun!  

Day 192

February 22, 2017

Morning breakfast date with my man at Wild Jordan.  Yummy food and great views of the city.  We'll take it when we can get it!
