My Brother the Star!

This weekend I attended the musical at the high school I went to that now my brother is a freshman at. I felt very nostalgic being there watching my brother perform on the same stage that I did 10 years ago. It doesn't seem like it's been that long! They have got some power house singers in that school! I was VERY impressed!
It was also the first time that my kids have been to a musical. It was a very long show from about 7:30-til almost 10 with a 15 minute intermission. I was SO VERY PROUD OF THEM! They were so enchanted by everything that was going on that they didn't even move! The music, the lights, the costumes and they of course loved the cookies at intermission!

We went to the show on Saturday night. But, my dad had an extra ticket for Sunday's show so me, my dad and Kelsey went back for a second time! This time we sat in the center of the 2nd row and everytime my little brother came out on stage Kelsey and I made "jazz hands" at him. At one point he did start to laugh and had to look away from us!

I was so glad I had the opportunity to share this with my family. I had such a good time doing musicals in High School that I hope my kids will love it as much as I do!

So in ending.....YOU ARE AWESOME DAVID! I was proud to sit in the audience and watch you carry on a great tradition in true Wilson family fashion! I love you!

Going Back....

This weekend I am taking a trip down memory lane. I am taking my family to go and see the GI Northwest musical "All Shook Up". It will be the first time I have been back inside my High School in 7 years. It is very interesting to me that I will be going to go see a musical in my school with my kids. I was in all the musicals during high school and now we are going to watch my little brother (he is a freshman) be in the musical. I am really looking forward to my kids seeing their first show! I hope it convinces at least one of them that they need to be onstage!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll post to let you all know what the kids thought!

Well, this next class should be fun......

I was so excited in my last post to have finally passed my algebra class, but today starts Intermediate Algebra....................

You know it's probably my own imagination making it worse but just reading the syllabus gave me a stomach ache. Plus I'm starting to think that I have actually taken on to much for these next few months.

GOOD NEWS: Dave is going back to work! Its a second shift from 4pm-12am, so it saves us a ton in day care!

BAD NEWS: (this is where I think I took on too much) He will be gone in the evening so I will have to handle, 4 kids, dinner, homework, plus my 2 classes, work, and baseball season (2 games a week).

For those of you who know me really well, you know I am a list-maker (a trait I inherited from my mother). Dave doesn't make lists.....and doesn't really understand my list making obsession!

So, if you thought the lists were bad before..........................just wait until this all starts!

I hope you all are having a good week and we'll talk soon!
