Summer Camp

I believe we have another actor in the house! Athena went to summer camp at the Arizona Broadway Theater this year. She loved every second of it! She was there from 10-4:30 everyday but still came home and danced and sang until bedtime. They did a short little show today to celebrate the end of the camp. She was adorable (well as adorable as a 4 eyed pirate can be) We could really tell she was very into it and seemed to be having a great time. After the show she wanted her picture with one of the teachers Miss Morgan, she mentioned to us that they could always count on Athena to know all the words and what step came next! Just like her big sister :)

Last Closing Night.....again

Little Shop of Horrors closed last night. And although we already went through the "this is the last night of High School shows" with Into the Woods, there was once again another show. Hailey wasn't going to do summer theater this year, she had said good-bye and come to terms with that chapter in life being over. Then she found out they were doing Little Shop! It is one of her favorites, one of my favorites and even one that Shawn actually likes! So she had to do it. It was a cute show, they did a good job. Hailey was adorable of course! Here is a little clip of her solo song, she's the blond ;) I didn't get too worked up but did get a little tiny tear in the corner of my eye at the very end. And I finally got my curtain call that I was supposed to get with Anne! Hailey was front and center and last to bow. It's the little things when you are the mom of a theater kid!

One night of recital down, one to go! After all of the gluing of sequins and rhinestones, months of extra practice on the weekends, recital time is finally here! Everything went great last night. I even survived my initiation of a one song costume change. She barely made it in line but we did it with a little help from one of the other moms. She had a great time and did a wonderful job! I can't wait to watch the video since I only saw everything from the side of the stage, no time to run out front this year with 5 costume changes! I'm very proud of my little dancing queen and look forward to the many years of dancing to come.
