It is done.
I have to say this is one of the most exhausting, all encompassing, rewarding, amazing things we do as homeschoolers. Us parents spend the entire month of May bemoaning how our lives are no longer our own being taken up with rehearsals, props, painting, sewing and driving, driving, driving. But we would all have it no other way. It is am amazing thing to give your children Shakespeare. I am so grateful to all of the Front Lawn Players and their parents.

That's just a sampling to give you all an idea of sets and costumes. There are literally thousands of photos that were taken (not by me) and most of them done much more beautifully than mine, however I am not comfortable sharing other people's photos. Our last performance was Monday (explaining why for the first time in the seven year history of this blog I neglected to thank our veterans and military) and yesterday was given wholly to laundry. Today to house cleaning and general picking up the pieces of our lives.
Until next week.
When rehearsals for A Midsummer's Night Dream begins. The junior cast will be doing this in late June.
Back again soon.
Mary Ellen, your photos are great, and I love the fact that you took photos from the angle opposite ours! As we saw often during rehearsal, a different angle is sometimes a different show!
And it was wonderful working with you and the kids and everyone of the FLPs, young and old. Let’s do it again, soon, eh? Like, um…next week? Ha!
