CHILCOOT SALOON

For the past 6 weeks, Daxon has been staying after school practicing for a melodrama. He has had so much fun taking part in this play. One of the added benefits of the schools here in Iowa is that they have great programs for children to participate in whatever the interest may be.


He played the part of Pierre le Deaux Deaux, the main man in charge of the french trappers. I had never witnessed Daxon in this kind of a setting. In fact, when he told me he wanted to participate I was a little surprised. Acting? Okay! He was AWESOME!!!!!


It was so much fun to see his personality come out this way. The other night as we all went to the show as a family, our hearts were racing for him. He acted as if he had NO FEAR. He was so funny. It was so much fun to watch him. The entire cast was adorable. What a great age. Man, the youth of today are so great. I really am amazed by what they are able to accomplish. They get up early, go to school all day, get good grades, participate in all kinds of activities, do jobs at home, and just keep going with big smiles--like energizer bunnies, they keep going and going. AMAZING-They are AMAZING!!!!!!

Truthfully, before the show Jers, and I were FREAKING OUT!!!! HOW are we going to make it through the whole thing with little miss Ashlynn. Sitting still isn't her idea of a great time. We had Britton's concert from 6:30 -7, (I will post more on that later. Elementary concerts are always so adorable. LOVE THEM:), then Daxon's show from 7:15 -9. We brilliantly downloaded Dora the Explorer from I-tunes. That with the play, kept her in her chair still for the almost 3 hours. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY. We didn't have to take her out or bug the peeps around us. Sometimes technology is such a wonderful thing:)

It was a great night. Daxon is already saying how excited he is for the next play. What a fun night.
