Don't Cry because it is over, Smile because it happened



     I wonder if Kaylyn's last play in High School was anything else we would have been so involved in throwing the cast party.  I had never seen the play before.  I liked Dr. Seuss growing up.....but, we have been living and breathing this play for the past few weeks.  Playing the music and making the decorations.  Planning the menu which included green eggs and ham.  We completely embraced it and attended the play all three nights.  Even when we came home last night at about 3:30 am, I could feel the let down of all the excitement being over.  But, the title quote keeps me going.  It is a great play about hope and imagination and never letting go of that inner child that is within us all.  Just keeping the inner child happy and out of trouble at the same time is life's balancing act.  I will look forward to everyone home at 6 pm for dinner again.  Aren't the big hanging hat's great!!!!! My husband made them.  My son did a great job as the dj.....mixing in some songs from the play and everyone----everyone sang along.  What a great group of kids and it gave my whole family complete pleasure watching them have the time of their lives!!!!!!
