Logan’s school put on a production of Guys and Dolls this past weekend.
Son Logan had a small part and even the guys with the small part have to get makeup.
Complete with the head tilted up and down and side to side. No complaining either. Or rather you can go ahead and complain but nobody is listening to you.
And then Mom ties your tie and makes sure that your shirt is tucked in.
Your time on the stage kid!
And then the girls in the 1940’s style dresses show up and steal it away from you. That’s life kid.
And then we get more girls.
And then we get the Salvation Army. This is a Christian School production after all.
And then the guys come out. You know how guys are, sinning one minute.
Singing in church the next.
And then we get the dancing girls with the twirly dresses. There was a whole stage of them. Too many heads showed up on the photo so I cropped all but this one girl out. You get the idea. The dresses were sewn by the moms supervised by one who had a mathematical background who figured out a precise pattern for each girl (no I am not kidding.) You can tell she had the right equations. Pretty amazing the moms in this show. Without them, not much would have happened.
The kids gave it their all. They worked hard for weeks, and so did the moms and the teachers. It was exhausting.
The result was great.
Here is our gentle giant of a sun next to his Nana and Mom. Doesn’t he look great in a double breasted suit?
And then on to the afterparty, food, soft drinks, and a swimming pool. Nothing better than that for teenagers. A nice big firepit for making smores and then a big downpour showed up putting a damper on the smores until one of them grabbed a big table umbrella. That’s problem solving I think. What do you think.
They’ll be talking about this production for years.
