highlights and curtain calls

This last week was chuck full of activities for Big Chick.  It started with a trip to our wonderful hair lady Meme.  When she was finishing up their cuts last month I just couldn't bear the thought of not seeing her again, so we made a little appointment for...HIGHLIGHTS! 

I know.  I'm crazy right??  She's way too young.  Now I'm going to have to keep up with it. UGH!  But you know what?  She was tickled pink.  Meme did a great job.  She just gave her a few little sun kissed strands.

And she looks absolutely adorable.  She has the perfect hair color to highlight.  It gave her a fresh new look:)  I'm really excited for her.  Now she's officially ready for junior high!!

We are in love with this gal.  She adores my kids.  I know she does.  She asks them questions and really cares about the answers.  She's so down to earth and real.  I wish we could swoop her up and take her with us.  And she'd come too.  She's so excited for our move to Virginia. 

The other exciting part of last week was Dinner Theater camp.  She's been after me for months about being in a play.  She loves to sing and really has the desire to try acting, SO we signed her up for camp.  It was perfect. 

It gave her a little taste of what it's all about.  They had camp every day for three hours and then on Friday they gave a little performance.  I could tell she was really nervous.  She's never done anything like this before.  She wouldn't smile at all during the first act.  The dancing parts were stressing her out.  She kept biting her bottom lip:)

By the end of the show I could tell she had loosened up and was enjoying herself more.  I'm really glad we had a chance to squeeze it in before we left.

The girls also finished up the soccer season.  Can't say we were sad to see it come to an end.  We sat in so many cold and rainy practices and games.  Cussing Minnesota under our we wouldn't do that!;) 

It seems things are wrapping up here.  There's some closure happening.  Boxes are being packed and projects are being completed.  It's Honey's last week at work.  Things are progressing.  It's a good feeling.  Excitement is replacing fear.  Just like Big Chick with her play.  I'm getting more comfortable with every step.  It's the final curtain call.  I feel a bow and a curtsy coming:)  Oh to end this journey with the sound of applause.  Now wouldn't that be grand!

Have a blessed day.
