We made it!

We made it! We survived Hell week! and yes, that is the proper name to call it! Every night since the previous Monday we did not get home before midnight!! Take the sets up and down, breaking down the bake sale tables and goodies and was a huge task every night. If we would not have had the team of parents we did none of us would have survived the week!!
The play, Fiddler on the Roof, was an amazing success! So many of the audience members came up to ask me if Joe (he played Tevhe the Poppa) was going to pursue acting as a career. I told them all no, this was just a way for him to go end his senior year of high school with a bang! And that he did! He was fantastic!! He surprised his mom and dad with his acting!! The audience loved him and the entire cast!
Steve's role of Mendel was fantastic! I loved the bottle dance!! And the scene at the cart when he is trying to get the Rabbi's cream! If the audience only knew that Tevye and Mendel were brothers and to see the action going on between the two of them! I loved it!! Chris played Sasha. He learned to play the mandolin for the play and he did it exceptionally well!! I'm so proud of all my sons!!
My sister, Renee flew in from South Carolina to see the play. I felt so bad for her, because I was so busy that I did not get to spend enough time with her. I love it when she comes up here!! I have such a wonderful time with her. She spoils my kids too, so they love it when Aunt Nay-Nay is coming up for a visit! She takes them all out to eat and buys them starbucks!! LOL Well, that is all for now. Tonight we have to go pick up the sets from the school/theater. UGH! I hope it is not another late night!
