The Week at the Boyack's - Week 2

This week isn't every eventful  We actually did a ton of stuff, but I didn't take many pictures.  I think it was mostly because we were all going in different directions.  Most of the week we had someone missing.., leaving us with 2 or 3 kids at home.  Most nights I made dinner and no one was home to eat it.

McKay came one on Tuesday from her trip to New Mexico.  She got to meet all of Myles family members, see the desert, go on a road trip through New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah, before flying home from Salt Lake City.  She even got to stop in Springville and see some of John's family and my cousin Moana for a few minutes.

She stopped at a couple of temples on the way.  I think it would have been cool to stop at every temple she passed and take a picture.  I want to do the someday.  She then worked the rest of the week and started wedding planning. 

Ben came to play a couple times this week.  He really likes the solid foods he is able to try.  He isn't a big fan of baby food in jars.  He will only eat is with cereal.  He sleep nicely in his own bed.  He scoots across the floor too.  He is one happy boy!

This is what I have been doing all week.... getting ready for CET (Children's Educational Theater).  This is the first year I've given it a try... it is the first year anyone has ever ask me too.  You would think that I'd start out slow... maybe just teach the first time.  Not me.  I am a teacher and the Tech Director .  I am responsible for 5 productions; sets, light, sound, props, and crew.

I designed 3 out of the 4 sets.  The first one is for Music Man JR.  It will be on the main stage at South Salem High School.  It was hard because there is no fly system to speak of, no wing space, and an out of date light and sound system.  The second set is for Giraffes Can't Dance.  This show will travel to Bush Park in Salem.  It performs during Art Days the 3rd week of July.  I like this set.  I will have fun doing it.

My 3rd set is for 12 Resourceful Princesses.  It will perform at the Salem Library and at a coffee house in Salem.  It was challenging because I needed to design flats the folded out.  I really wanted to make them like a pop up book.  Sadly, there is no way I will have time for that.  Although I have some stock to pull from.  I will have to build most of it.  I have 4 weeks to build, paint, focus, etc.  I have 2 tech classes (ages 10-15) that meet for 40 minutes each and a few parent volunteers that will work on 2 nights a week.  It really isn't much time.  It's going to be a crazy couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Chad is left to his own devices... not that I have a lot of say right now.  He stays in bed until 2 or 3... he makes the kitchen a mess... he lays on the couch and plays video games... and he exercises like crazy... at night.  I really don't get the teenage boy brain.

Friday, I got to go to the temple.  We missed doing a session with Montana, but we did get to take him to dinner.  :)

Well, that is what happened at our house this week.  Next week I'll report how Lillian and I survived our first week of CET, how the house survived without mom at home, and what Hannah has been up to.  This week she was at girl's camp, but she was only home for a couple minutes before she headed out the door for Grandma Mabee's house.

  2. We'll see what I really turn out doing. Maybe I will amaze myself and get everything done with time to try my ideas.
