Liesl Is Sick

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Who, you might be thinking is Liesl? Well, today through Saturday night it’s Ally (my HS senior). She’s playing the oldest Von Trapp daughter in the school musical, The Sound of Music. For months, she has practiced long hours and now that it’s showtime….allergies and exhaustion have attacked her skinny little body. She feels horrible. The director did say she still sounds great during her songs. That’s good!

After today’s performance, she’s going home and straight to bed. She’s had enough over-the-counter medicine in the last 30 hours to knock me out cold. But she’s still rolling dragging along. It stinks! Curse you, Ohio valley pollens!!

In spite of the stuffed up head and sore throat issues…I’m still so excited to see the show. I have tickets to both Friday and Saturday night. Maybe just maybe she will be feeling better by tomorrow night. If not, the show must go on…

Right? πŸ˜‰

Goodluck Miss Ally! I’m so proud of you!!

A Walk on Broadway

You know how sometimes words just seem so futile? Well, that’s how I feel trying to come up with something adequate to describe this weekend’s show. It was amazing! It made me smile and laugh….and beam with pride! I loved it!

There’s something very special about seeing your kids perform. Especially when they work so hard and invest so much of themselves into it. A Touch of Class is a top notch group of students. Each of them bring something unique and special to the stage. I have a hard time picking favorites. Well, except for my own…..of course! πŸ™‚

We had tickets for Saturday night’s show. I read the many brags and accolades on Facebook after Friday’s show and my excitement was about to get the best of me. Ally, you really shine when you are on stage. I loved every song and dance. Your “quick” solo two lines……was the best show opener I’ve seen in a long time!

Can’t wait to see you do your thing the rest of the school year! Your hard work sure did pay off! The show ROCKED!

My Kids! Ally, Gavin & Gates!
