Thank you for stopping by to my little corner of the blogworld. I hope you enjoy your stay. I am a Christian wife and a stay at mom to 5 beautiful children. I just love this journey with all its bumps, twists and unexpected JOYS. We have homeschooled, public schooled and some of our children atttend a Christian private school so we have experienced quite the variety of school options. We have also adopted internationally. That continues to be a defining aspect of our family. We have three sons, two daughters, a cat and a dog.
The 8th grade put on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe on Friday and Saturday. The kids did a phenomenal job.I'm not sure why I was so surprised since they are such a great group of kids. J played the parts of Father Christmas and the Evil Dwarf to the White Witch. There is something special watching your child do something that is so outside his comfort zone. He did not ask us to help him with his lines once. He just worked on it on his own, read the lines, memorized them and did it. The hardest part for him, (I think) was having to wear make up on stage. He did ask my help getting him the make up. Nothing like your 13 year old son asking you to pick up stage make up for him... and he stays in the car while you do it. So funny. At least he needed my help for SOMETHING. So here are some of the photos from the play.
J as Father Christmas
J joked that Father Christmas was giving sharp objects and magic potions to young children.
