Another week gone

Check out that rhubarb!

Doesn't it look wonderful?!
I can't wait for rhubarb pie, jam, scones, bars, cake and the like.

Another week has somehow managed to fly right by me.

I had this idea, as I was digging through a box in my closet
and came across a slew of old letters from my grandmother, that
I would do some posts about my relatives in Kansas, but I'm
stuck! Unable to scan in my old pictures. Guess that will
have to wait till my computer kid is done with the play and
home more often than just to sleep.

Speaking of the school play, tonight is opening night!

Chyann and Caden got to see it yesterday in school and
loved it! EXCEPT for the part when Colton's character
gets shot and dies! That was a shocker!
I can't wait to see it! Colton even sings solo!!

Anyhow, all parents of kids in the play have to bring snacks
for intermission, so I spent most of yesterday baking.

7 layer bars, scotcheroo bars, kitchen sink bars (oatmeal, raisin,
nuts, coconut), chocolate chip cookies and not pictured
are snicker-doodle cookies.

After the play all the kids go to Menomonie and eat at Perkins
restaurant. Guess who is elected to drive? Yep, Colton is.
When he told me last night my stomach clenched!
Him driving a car full of kids on Highway 94
scares me to pieces!
I asked if he wanted me to drive them, he said nope.
Now I'll have to worry, but not till after the play!

You sure did a lot of baking! He's going to sing?! Don't worry, make him go to Perkins on the back roads
via 170 and 25 and bypass 94.

Wow, seven years ago when Becca was in the school play they too went to Perkins in Menomonie to celebrate, so guess that traditions hangs on. I hope the kids do well.

Sorry I can't make it to the play.
