Anything Goes

My weekend was pretty well taken up with the high school drama club performance of Anything Goes. Hannah had one of the lead female roles and Dale and I were in full parental participation mode for the weekend.

There were cookies to bake for the refreshment sale.

And there was hair to curl. 3 shows, 1 hour curling time forย  each show equals a lot of time with the curling iron. And a lot of Aqua Net.

There was a bit of knitting at the start of each show but not at the show on Sunday.

At that show I took 650 pictures. That is a LOT of pictures, my friends. The post processing will take a while but here’s one of Hannah that I just love.

I don’t have to tell you that there were tears at the last performance, right? I ought to be a real mess at graduation.

  1. Beautiful picture!
    Yay for full parental participation; as tiring as it can be, there really is no other choice is there? I never tired of watching Samm dance; it took up a lot of my time, but I loved every minute of it.

  2. You’re a proud mother. How wonderful for Hannah to have you there and for all the memories she’s collecting. You may be a mess but you’ll be a happy mess.

  3. Spontaneous maternal blubbering – we’ve had some of those incidents here, too!

  4. Congrats on Hannah’s performances. Love the photo! I hear you on being a mess at graduation thing. Been there, done that. I have another one this year too.

  5. What a wonderful shot of Hannah in the play.
    Anders will be in our school production of Guys and Dolls next month. I’m sure I’ll be crying in the audience too.

  6. We have our first high school musical coming up in May. I have been crying at Nicole’s last performance of every show she has done for the last 7 years! I can only imagine what her senior year will be like.

    Great pic of Hannah. I hope you post some more. She looks like she had a blast! Is she going to continue with drama in college?

  7. She looks absolutely radiant! You may have shed some tears, but you’ll never regret having been there ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, you’ll definitely be a mess at graduation … we all are ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love you!

  8. Even just looking at the photo way over here, I was a misty eyed Mom as well.
    I think that seeing our children’s success is a real heart melter for all of us ๐Ÿ˜‰ And Hannah looks like a pro in this photo! go Hannah!!
    And yes, you’ll be a mush-ball at graduation. That’s what we love about you Carole.

  9. Love the twirl of her skirt; she looks lovely. Ah those milestones as our children pass from one phase of their lives to another. Just keep in mind good things are yet to come!

  10. You couldn’t just make her sleep face down or with her head in some sort of cradle contraption like a geisha? …no, you wouldn’t do that. Neither would I. She looks great! I’m getting vicariously misty-eyed here.

  11. Tears for sure, and there probably should have been elebenty-billion curtain calls from the looks of the two of them in that photo!
    Congrats!!
    (((hugs)))

  12. what a perfect photo!!! i love it! i went to my boyfriend’s alma mater operetta this weekend with him…and he was all nostalgic thinking of all the shows and plays he had done there…

  13. What a great picture! You will definitely be a mess at graduation…I was at both my boys’ high school graduations and was even worse at the younger one’s college graduation. It comes with the territory and isn’t a bad thing at all.
