Since MK is a stage manager, she and I are working on the play. So, tonight the Big Man took T. Willy to see the Avengers. They had a great time, and I'm glad they could have some fun together.
There are 2 1/2 weeks left in the school year. I am ready for some rest. This has been a hectic year, that is for sure. I really enjoy it, but summer is welcome too.
Here is a picture that the Big Man sent from the movie.

I spent the day with the kids. MK spent the night with a friend, so T. Willy and I picked her up, then we went for a drive. Our former neighbors moved to the country a few years ago, and the Big Man ran into them recently. They mentioned that they have 10 acres for sale, and I wanted to check it out. I didn't find it, but we had a special time anyway. I dream of having land, but it will take awhile to make it happen.
In the middle of the day, I found out that a friend from high school passed away yesterday. I am just stunned. She was at her son's soccer game, and she just collapsed. The guess is seizure or aneurysm, and it's just heartbreaking.
So, that was our day. I hope yours was filled with more ups than downs.
I'm including a picture of the gift that T. Willy made for me at my neighbor's house.

I'm directing our spring play at school, and it is almost time for it. One more week!!! We are working on it constantly, and I am finally seeing it come together. So, I don't have a lot of anything else to report.
MK gets her driver's license on Monday, so that's pretty big. She's been driving with me for a year, and she does a great job, but, there is no way to really prepare myself for it. It's a rite of passage, and most parents go through it, but...just praying a lot.
Here is a picture of T. Willy riding with MK and her boyfriend. They pick him up while we are rehearsing late and then bring him to the school. This is one of those trips. In addition, I added two pictures that Matt's mom took at the beach before prom. I thought they were both great.

However, there wasn't much time to linger over it, because she had a hair appointment to fix her up for her first prom! As I write, she is there with all of her friends. They went to the beach to take pictures, so I'm just going to share them and then wonder why time has to go so fast.
