Adleigh’s First Gymnastics Meet

Adleigh has her very first gymnastics meet this morning! She is a member of the Bronze team at Williamsburg Gymnastics. Her team placed 2nd overall. Adleigh did a fantastic job! She place 2nd on beam (9.3), 2nd on bars (9.55), and 6th in all around. Then, we had to quickly shuttle her to the theatre for a two pm show of Christmas Carol. She has had a long week!

Adleigh you have managed your time well and have been so determined. Keep reaching for the stars! We cannot wait to see what you do next! We love you!

Even after her show, dinner, and a shower she is still wearing the medals! 🙂

Trip to the Moon

Canton took the the JHS stage for the first time last night in Trip to the Moon. He has been involved with the fall competition play “Donut Dollies” which will compete in the state championship in Charlottesville tomorrow!

Trip to the Moon is a series of vignettes centered around the moon landing. Canton plays Jack, the charismatic and annoying little brother of a family in one scene, and in another, he plays Brett, a well to do young man trying to cope in Vietnam.

Last night after the show, he was presented with three roses and notes from Rhonda, Beth, and Poppy and Grandma. This was such a nice gesture of love and support! Much appreciated! Canton has two more shows and then auditions for the musical next week!

Liberty Winter 2023 Harp Recital

Liberty continues to work hard at the harp. The class had their level one and two recitals on 12/4. It is wild that just a couple years ago she was playing hot cross buns and now can perform much more intricate and beautiful songs. If she keeps working hard she will be in the level three ensemble class in the fall. Way to go Liberty, we are so proud of you!

Christmas Carol 2023

After two years of Canton and Mike performing in Christmas Carol at WP it is time for Adleigh to hit the stage! We are so proud of her for expressing an interest and putting in all the time to learn the songs and blocking. Tonight is their first of 12 performances! It couldn’t happen without Mike who has given hours to build the set, courage to take on his own role, and his guidance and love to share it with Adleigh. We are truly blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving 2023

I love starting off the morning preparing food and watching the parade! The girls were quite a help and were excited for Bluey and the Rockettes!

We are thankful for our family near and far, for a year of growth, achievements, and deep appreciation and love!

The rest of the year will be busy. Next week Mike and Canton will be in NYC. Then we have Adleigh’s meet, Liberty’s harp concert, Canton’s concerts and shows, the Wburg Xmas parade, and watching Adleigh make her WP debut with Mike in Xmas Carol! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

On the Way to VTA

We just dropped Canton off for 4 nights/5 days away from us 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

He’s heading to Richmond to compete in the Va Theatre Association for the one act play. He will also get to attend workshops and keynotes on everything theatre related. The girls sobbed when he left, luckily the got a bit of quality time with him before we had to drop him off. I don’t like this feeling. College is going to be sooooooooooo hard.
