Whew! We just keep on running these days!
Yesterday evening was Nora and Jake’s 2009 drama banquet. It was quite an evening.
The kids and a few parents managed to throw it together last minute as the director had a family emergency recently. It was actually amazing how much food and participation there was on 48 hours notice!
It was a great evening. Nora and Lauren (her close friend) got to pass their pins along to the new President and Vice President for the 2009-2010 school year. Cody Gilliam will be the drama club president and Shayna Beard will be acting as his vice president. It was very exciting!
Nora won for best role in Godspell, along with Ben Mathis. Lauren Kelly got the best lead in Gettysburg Cannon, which was also an awesome show. Jake won best techie which was also very cool! It was great that both our kids were a part of this and that both of them were awarded. The juniors also did stuff for the seniors as it was their last banquet, and Nora won the soul-less “speddie” (as in special-ed award) and they did a hilarious “This is Your Life” bit for each of the seniors. It was quite memorable.
I am looking forward to more of these with Jake in the future, and I am sad that Nora will be absent! She’ll have her own award ceremonies in NYC, though!!
