Blue Man Group!

As is tradition, I gave Chase a birthday “experience” versus gifts this year. I asked him if it was OK to give him an early gift and luckily he said yes, because we got to go see Blue Man Group! Chase is a percussionist and lover of all things weird, so I knew it would be right up his alley. We had an awesome time, and afterwards Chase was able to get his picture taken with the drummer and guitar player, as well as one of the blue men! Then we finished the day with a giant slice of pizza downtown.

These one-on-one experiences are so precious to me, and I absolutely love that they love them, too! Happy early birthday, Chase!

Chloe’s Fine Arts Night

Chloe showed off both her musical and visual art skills at her Fine Arts Night tonight! It started with an abridged performance of “The Greatest Showman,” followed by an art show around the school. This girl’s got talent!

Harry Potter in Concert!

I took the kids to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban In Concert and it was so amazing! The kids are begging to go to more of them. They played the whole movie on a giant screen, with all the orchestrations played live by the orchestra/choir. Such a cool experience!

Mary Poppins!

I had the honor of directing a summer musical this year, Mary Poppins!  The kids got to be in it, too!  Chloe had a very important job.  If you’ve seen the show, you will understand:

We rehearsed in the mornings, and did tech in the afternoons.  Chloe loved that part!

They crashed on the drive home every day!


It was a really great experience for them, and they weren’t ready for performances to be over!


In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.  You find the fun and… SNAP!  The job’s a game!

Finding Neverland

One of the Christmas presents under the tree for the family this year was to see Finding Neverland!  The kids had a great time coloring on the walls at Bass Concert Hall (oh, and they enjoyed the show, too)!
