Five on a Monday

1. On Friday night I took my daughter to see her friend in a stage production of Grease. It was super fun and very well done. The teens who were in the show had a lot of talent and enthusiasm. And of course the songs from Grease just kind of make you tap your feet and feel happy.

2. While we were at the show I put my son and husband in charge of making some rhubarb/strawberry ice cream. We'd found the recipe in a magazine. I'd picked and diced the rhubarb and purchased the rest of the ingredients. They did a good job of cooking it up and making it into ice cream. To go with that, the following day I made rhubarb/strawberry cobbler. Yum!

3. Two baseball games this weekend. One on Saturday and a make-up game on Sunday. I think the first game ended in a tie, but there is apparently a dispute about that. We may have lost. Sunday's game was a definite win though.

4. While I went to my son's baseball game on Saturday, my daughter and husband were busy volunteering scoring archery targets for the tri-state Wheelchair games. I'm very proud of my daughter's enthusiasm for volunteering whenever the opportunity arises.

5. We introduced the kids to Gone With the Wind this weekend - watching part of it Saturday and part of it Sunday (that is a very long movie). My daughter loved it, my son didn't seem to quite get it (I also don't think he tried that hard). It had been ages since I'd seen the movie, and I'd forgotten just how good it is. Gotta love Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara.

On #5, I'm with your son -- I still don't get it.

But it's so well-acted!
