Greetings from Riggville!
My sweet friend Laura B informed me that it's been over a week since I last blogged and told me get on top of it! haha! So Laura, this is for you : )
One of the reasons I haven't blogged is because I've been working on making these cast posters for the play. It was a much bigger project than I imagined, collecting testiomnies from the cast, editing testimonies to fit on the poster, formatting each picture and text box to be spatially aligned, etc... Took me forever but I think they came out really nice.
Here is poster number 2. I put them up in the church on Sunday and every time I passed them there was a crowd huddled around reading them. It made me happy to see people getting excited about the play!
And speaking of the play, only 1 more week till we perform!! Here are some shots from our last rehearsal.
Scene where Angel Gabriel tells Mary she is going to be the mother of the Savior
Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth (mother of John the Baptist)
Taber looking ever so angelic : )
(everyone in the cast sings in the choir of angels at some point so we all have angel robes)
I'm also in charge of doing spotlights for the cast members to help everyone get to know each other better and I love this picture of me spotlighting Shannon because I think it captures how much fun we are having!
PREVIEW OF SUMMER
In other news, we were treated to a little heat wave last week that gave us a tantalizing preview of summer. Temps were up in the 80's and as soon as Teya got home from school she was in her swimsuit jumping on the trampoline with sprinklers.
Cam loved being on the trampoline too and was just giggling his little head off.
Cutie Brinsie with her Cougar shirt enjoying wearing shorts and sandals to preschool.
The kids also discovered the sand pile left over from last year when we dumped out our sandbox and spent an afternoon digging and playing in the sand.
Well the girls were digging and playing, Cam was mostly just eating.
He just kept shoveling it in, must've been tasty; )
Who needs a sandbox? Sandpiles are just as fun!
The temps have dropped back down into the 40's and 50's this week but it was fun to pretend it was summer while it lasted ;)
So that is the latest from the Riggs! Hope everyone is doing good in blogland, I promise I'll be back again soon : )
