In one sense, it has begun to slow down a bit in our house.
The Girl’s award ceremony is over. She received THREE awards and one of them was for writing! That made me very happy. She has one more week of school and then she is out for the summer.
The Girl’s honors chorus performance (Festival of the Arts 2013) is over and done! She did great! They sang three songs and only had five days of practice. Whew!
We went to the California Science Center and finally saw Endeavour in all its glory. It’s a little smaller than I imagined and the temporary hangar is not very deep so really good photos were difficult to get with just my point and shoot.
I was especially awed by this view. This part of it seemed massive to me.
The Boy also got to ride this bike. This is an alarming three stories high and he insisted on tipping it back and forth.
This week was nuts but it’s over and done with. Next week, I have to attend a meeting for summer school and it’s the week before production week so there will be a lot of prepping for that. The week I dread is production week itself. It’s very, very hard to keep it all straight as the schedules are different nearly every day, but I really do look forward to seeing the kids in the show. I do. I also look forward to working back stage again. It’s just a long, long week.
What am I reading?
I am reading Big Brother by Lionel Shriver, Life Itself by Roger Ebert, and I feel the need to pick-up something else. Not sure what.
What am I cooking?
I will be making Chicken Curry tonight with rice. Simple and yummy. Good leftovers too.
What am I watching?
We watched a lot of movies yesterday, The Lorax (VERY colorful and a little sad), You’ve Got Mail (The Girl loved it), and The Andromeda Strain. We are planning to watch Overboard later (silly Goldie Hawn movie but fun). I REALLY want to watch Jaws but we don’t own it.
That’s my weekend! What are you up to?
