September 2008

Life has been busy the past few months, with rehearsals and work. Friday August 29was opening night and we've had 2 shows so far. As a cast, we were definitely ready for an audience. Hearing the instant response is amazing. We have three more weekends of shows -- 4-5 shows a weekend. It's hard to be away from home so much, but a lot of fun. I will keep an eye open to do other shows, but will be picky about what shows to do. "The Producers" has been worth it! You can see a short video and review on the Gazette Web site.

We took a long weekend and drove to Aberdeen for my cousin Nicole's wedding. We had a lot of fun at the hotel. Maggie learned to "swim" and had a lot of fun dancing at the wedding dance. She was very well behaved during the wedding and only asked to "go home" once. Maggie got to spend a lot of time with Grandma Alana and even spent Friday night after the wedding with her so Rocky and I could have a few more drinks at the dance. We visited Great Grandma Alberta for a while and Maggie did her Clifford puzzle. Then it was off to spend some time in Watertown. Maggie had a lot of fun playing with her cousins, especially Amy and Delaney. She told Daddy "I play with my friends!"

We've also driven out to Deer Lodge for a quick visit. My cousin Angela and Aunt Karen were in town for another cousin's wedding. It was nice to see both again as I couldn't quite remember the last time I saw either of them.

The yard is really coming in nicely and it fun to play in. Maggie loves to go outside and blow bubbles, play with water balloons or write on the sidewalk with her chalk. We will also have some tiny tomatoes as the seeds Maggie and I planted this spring have already produced 3 bright red tomatoes. I haven't picked any yet to see if they are any good.

Tomorrow is preschool orientation. Maggie still isn't potty trained, but is ready in every other way, so we will chat with the teachers to see if they will let her attend. She will also be moving up to the 3 year old room where many more kids are trained. I'm sure she'll just decide one of these days and that will be the end of diapers.

Rocky starts classes again this week. He's taking 2 this fall, but doesn't think it will be much more work than the 1 class was that he took this summer. His folks are going to come out later this month to "baby-sit" -- he has class one night that I also have a show. It's a nice excuse for them to come visit.

  1. I am going through potty training our almost 3-year old boy. What a job, but he is starting to get the hang of it.
    I think I am going to keep him at home though for 2 more years.
