My sister's kids go to a marvelous Classical Academy. Each year they put on a school-wide musical production; everyone is involved. Top notch costume design. Stunning sets. Last year was "Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang" - my dad turned a golf cart into the most beautiful "Chitty" you've ever seen, and this year it was "Peter Pan". They do 3 performances over the course of a weekend. The hard work and dedication of the students, staff, and parents (sometimes grandparents) is awe-inspiring. My nephew was Captain Hook. My mother designed and made his costume. 😍 "Play season" is one of my favorite times of the year. #passionproject#dreamers#insanetalent#hardwork#inspired#makingmemories#mynephew#proudauntie
I hold a 5 Euro Cent in my hand,
Unwilling to waste any more on a silly fountain,
When I know it's prayers that get answered.
But as I sit on this cool marble ledge,
With coins whizzing and flipping on either side of my head,
I can't help but squeeze my eyes shut and think real hard.
What to wish for?
What prayer should I attach to this little coin?
What dream should I join with all the others surrendered to Trevi?
Fame and fortune, I'd take or leave.
Of love, I've already got an overflow.
I'm healthy and secure, in this life and the next.
I'm happier then I have ever been in my life!
I am doing in these few days what I have dreamt of my whole life.
What else could there be for me?! A smile slides over my lips as I flip my coin high over my head
Hand-warmed metal splashing into cold water,
Sinking down to rest with a hundred other hopes and dreams.
God, please let me come back! (Google search)
Spring training with my eldest son. 😊 He was determined to be here for my surgery tomorrow. He hasn't been in this stadium since his high school graduation 16 years ago. He and our second son were bat boys for 2 years during spring training when they were in grade school/junior high. Fun memories! #springtraining#baseball#makingmemories
