Today, I am grateful for Jack's interest in the trumpet. The 6th grade band played for the opening of the hometown expo a few weeks back, and George got a few awesome pictures!
Today, I am grateful for all the amazing depth of talent in our high school. The performance of Shrek: The Musical last weekend had me toe-tapping in my seat! Everything was excellent, from the sets and lighting to costumes and makeup to acting and singing to the orchestra in the pit!

|Shrek and Donkey. Can you imagine wearing those costumes and makeup|
for four whole performances?
|Lord Farquaad was delightfully nasty and so funny, but crawling around on|
his knees must have been really tough!

|Three Blind Mice|
|Farquaad on his horse, with the knight clopping the coconuts together...a |
fun reference to Monty Python. Farquaad exited as his horse was backed
of the stage to the sound of a dump-truck backing signal!
|Gingy and Pinocchio and other fairytale creatures|
|The Three Little Pigs and the White Rabbit|

My heart is full of gratitude today. So tell me, what are YOU grateful for?
