Wonderful Weekend

We have had a wonderful weekend!

FRIDAY: Alex and I went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream put on by a local homeschool group. They are rhetoric students using Tapestry of Grace and they were GREAT! The show was 3.5 hours long! And, I even asked Alex if she wanted to leave during either intermission, but she didn't! I was so glad we'd prepared by reading and watching versions of this story before seeing it performed in Shakespeare's own words as it is sometimes hard to understand what is being said. But, these kids were great!

SATURDAY: Alex and I went to a Haunted Homestead. She dressed as Cleopatra and I thought she looked great! It ended up not being very scary, which was great for me! But, they'd given out most of the candy by the time we got there and Alex only got 5 pieces.

SUNDAY: We all went to the Texans game. It was Military Appreciation Day, and besides winning (Go Texans!), we had some other treats. Among them:
  • Former President George Bush and Former President George W Bush were there as Honorary Team Captains! (Oh, how I hated that I'd JUST taken my camera out of my purse for the previous night!)

  • Neal E Boyd, last year's "America's Got Talent" winner, performed "I'm Proud to Be an American." It was amazing! (And, I think he is amazing!)

  • The Silent Marine Corps Drill Team performed. We've seen them twice before and they are amazing!

  • The US Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, parachuted in carrying and American flag and the game ball.

Sounds like a perfect weekend to me, well all except the part about Alexandra only getting 5 pieces of candy. Phooey!

What a great, great weekend! I remember when Neal won AGT show. I thought he was amazing then.
Man! How awesome to be in the same place as two former presidents. Very cool. What a misfortune to not have the camera. ;-(
