Shrek: Preparing for the School Musical

We waited years to participate in the school musical. Some type of hesitation always came up, usually about the massive time commitment. But this year we had a plan. It would be a family commitment, known well in advance, and we would dive in and meet the challenge head on. So schedules were re-arranged, sports were put on hold, and full days (and weekends) were endured. The kids jumped into their roles, and hearing them sing songs at home was an added bonus. I was tasked with set and stage production, and am enjoying the process so far. We turned our carport into a set painting studio, which makes me think...why don't I paint outside more often? The big performance dates are yet to come. Will I still be standing two weeks from now? Let's hope so, because I certainly don't want to turn into an Ogre.
