Showboat Clever Belle 2010 and other happenings....

Friday was Dak's last Showboat Clever Belle performance. tear. He did SO well!!! I think it was his best performance to date. He was spot on!!

So of course, this post is FULL of Dak pics, but since they were in low lighting they are not the best and my picture ability. I need to be taking lessons from someone (hint, hint, cue RJ =)

Here is Dak and Alyssa in all their concert best, getting ready to sing their hearts out.

Adam, Cody and Dak performing at their Showboat best.

This is Dak sitting at our table, getting ready to be ornery as part of the fun.

Here is Alyssa singing her solo "I Can Hear the Bells" from Hairspray. So funny!! She did a GREAT job!!!

The Chamber Choir and Choir Chicks (so cute).....

Dak and his mama.........I love this kid so!!!!!

Dak being adorable after the performance. He was SO happy!!!

Here is a video for your listening and laughing enjoyment. This is part of a song the kid's did, "Make an Ugly Woman Your Wife"....Hilarious!!! Be sure and keep your eye on Dak....This child

I have another video of his duet that was the show stopper!!! It was absolutely terrific!! But it was taken aways back with no zoom. So I am hoping to get a copy from his teacher. I have sent out a plea. So I'm really hoping for a copy =)

Well in other week from this Thursday is my knee replacement surgery. YAY!! Seems like since we made the decision, I have peace about it. I didn't want to do it just yet, but this knee is hard to deal with sometimes, and with insurance changing all the time, we thought this was probably a good time to do it. And so maybe by next Spring I will be up and running or at least fast walking again =) YAY!!!

I am continuing to go up and being prayed for at church and God is meeting me at every.single.service. no matter how I am feeling, they pray in accordance to that. It is truly amazing!!! We are trusting God and looking forward to pain-free and swelling-free days to run around with Dick, Dak, Chase and Sir Cuteness. And I am ready.

There are so many to pray for like Elizabeth and Karen and Kate, and so many others.

I thank you so much for remembering me and my family during this time. I will keep you posted on preparations and the like. I kind of took a little break last week....but I am back.

Have a Blessed Monday.....

Hebrews 12:1 (New International Version)
