Tuesday,July 8

It has been an interesting 24 hours.

It rained late last night and into early this morning. Quite a bit of rain. Things were wet and muddy around the stage. Rehearsal continued there for a while but a return of rain showers sent us scurying to the high school.

While we were there, the work crew back at the stage dug small trenches to drain an inch or so of standing water from areas around the stage, hauled in new bark to spread in front of the stage, continued work on the set and cleaned things up! These young men are nothing short of spactacular! I couldn't help but think that this is the type of young men Helaman must have lead!

We had the kids make some sock puppets today. They had a great time doing it and it helped out a lot, too! Then the 'kids' went chasing bubbles.

Despite the delays, things continue to move along. The directors told the cast and crew tonight that they have never had a group learn so quickly and complete the physical setup so quickly as this red cast group! These people are really awesome!

I would Love to see Melba teaching that Dance in a costume! Go for it, and get those pictures posted!!
I am not surprised about the Mission President trying to recruit you ! Make sure you coordinate the application or you would end up in Zimbabwe!! Not a bad thing , but surely different than Nauvoo.
