I have really been afraid to post because of the dang issues I have had with my blog.† Now Google is showing it as ‘dangerous’.† ::sighs::† I don’t think it is but Bill [my computer guy] is going to move it all to another server and that will completely clean it he said.
I just wanted to post some of Keilee’s “Little Women” pictures.† The play was wonderful and she did such a great job.† Seriously.† I wish I could have brought all of you along to see it.† It isn’t the long version of the book, but a shortened version.
It started off with the sisters lamenting over the lack of Christmas they will be having.† This is also where Marmee read the letter from Papa who is a Chaplain in the Civil War.† This is where you first see some of the ‘conflicts’ between Jo and Amy.† Keilee did such a wonderful job with her expressions.† Everyone commented on it.
Next is Jo trying to get Amy to ‘be more realistic’ in her fainting scene.† It has Amy trying to faint while searching for a safe place to fall.
Next is Jo’s play with Amy, Meg and Jo playing the roles.† This was so funny!
Then Amy wants to go with them to a play but Jo doesn’t let her.† This is where Amy burns Jo’s book.† I could never get pictures of this because Keilee was pitching a fit and throwing things around and none of them were good.† When the older girls return from the play Jo looks for her book and Amy keeps saying she doesn’t have it.† Finally she admits she burned it and Jo goes crazy.† This was so intense each time I saw it.† Keilee and Jo did a fantastic job with this.
Act 2 begins with a picnic with all the cast.† They play a game of Rigamarole where someone starts a story and the next person continues it.† It was a fun scene.† Also in these pictures are Jo telling the family her story got published. They were all so excited for her.
Unfortunately a telegram came with the bad news that Papa had been injured.† They all started getting Marmee ready to go to Papa.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the play.
Keilee had so many people who came to see her perform.† Over 25!† She was just giddy and we both actually hated to see this play end.† She told me that more people told her what a great job she did than in any other play.† She was really brilliant.† [and yes I am a bit prejudiced] But she also works very hard on her roles.
We went out to eat with our dear friends after the last performance.† Fun was had by all.
I am so glad she had this experience.† Christmas is going to be small this year so I am so glad she had such fun.
I am sorta afraid to comment on anyone’s blogs until my issues are fixed.† Please know that I am reading…just commenting in my head!
The events that happened Friday just broke our hearts.† We came home from the school show and didn’t even know about it until my brother called.† We just sat in shock and watched on the only channel I get.† And prayed…we prayed a lot.† And still are praying.
I know I am hugging my girl tighter this week and trying to enjoy every single minute we have together.
