You are not going to believe it!!!

You are not going to believe this, because I can hardly believe it myself. Our small town has a festival every summer to celebrate our Swiss heritage. So many exciting things happen, there is shopping, food, games, tournaments and a musical. So when they were looking for chorus people, right away Lauren was ready to be on that stage once again. Logan joined with some encouragement. Lyndsi and Lexi wanted to join too.
I knew Lauren and Logan would be fine, but I was a little unsure that Lyndsi and Lexi could do all those practices and 3 performances without some supervision. I told Lyndsi and Lexi that I would have to join with them. (You see, Matt was my first thought, but he has been really busy at work--so I knew he couldn't make all those practices:()

Now for those of you, that don't know me, I don't sing really all that well. I have been thinking that I could be tone deaf? But because Lyndsi and Lexi really wanted to do it and my small town needed people to stand on the stage, sing and ACT happy, I told the girls we would go to one practice and see.

My theory was to stand in the back so I could keep an eye on the girls, smile, act happy and sing softly so no one would be bothered by it.

So being the fun, out-going individual that I am, I said well, we would go to one practice. Well at that practice we could see that they needed chorus people and I signed my name. Yes, I am in the MUSICAL.

Well the girls were so excited and my small little town needed the people to stand on the stage to sing and act happy. There will be no blending into the back row--I am the back row--standing right behind Lyndsi and Lexi!!! There are several other chorus members--it is that I was thinking there would be maybe like 30. We have been practicing 3 nights a week. It has been fun. I've gotten to know some of the people from my small town better. Lyndsi and Lexi are always ready to go to practice. So if you are in my area at the end of July and are looking for some real entertainment. Come check us out. Lauren and Logan actually each have a speaking line or two.

More pictures to come soon!! Hope you all have a great weekend.
