Congrats on the new dog, Smartypants! What kind of dog is it?
Ruth, the greenhouse sounds wonderful! I had never heard of the custom with the flowers, but it sounds like a great idea. Our priest did a wonderful sermon and all the moms were given carnations.
Mamacita, I am so impressed that you work with your own wool! My neighbor has really gotten into knitting in the past year. She gets wool from a friend in Pennsylvania and spins it herself. I do not think she does the dying, though. What do you usually make with your wool?
Little Chick, I have personally found that maxim to be true...a bad dress rehearsal makes for a perfect performance! Have you ever heard the song, "Another Opening, Another Show!"? There's a section that goes: "Four weeks, you rehearse and rehearse.
Three weeks and it couldn't be worse. One week, will it ever be right? Then out of the hat, it's that big first night!"
I bet, on that big first night, things will be great! And you know their parents will love it no matter what they do!
