Cassie agreed to let me make her a prom dress. There was nothing in the area that fit the bill so we took a day trip to Vogue and this fabric caught her eye. It turned out well. The gold glitter is wonderful. The house looks great with the excess that flecked off all over. < :-)
The lilac dress at the end of these photos was the prom dress from last year.
April 26 Phil will turn 23. We will celebrate on the weekend when he can have a margarita with his meal. This is a downside of working nights.
The next few weeks will be very busy for Cassandra... and that means the rest of us transporting and attending.
There is an all city band concert at Central High School on the 26th, 7:00pm.
The Hale band concert is on May 2, 7:00pm.
The state solo ensemble is at Concordia College on May 5, sometime in the morning.
She kept asking the band director to chase down the English Horn the district owns to see if she wants to include the horn with her oboe skills. She brought it home today. As I type she is seeing what it can do. The range is that of my beloved viola.
May 11 we will go to a fashion show at Mount Mary College, my alma mater.
Hale prom is the 12th of May.
Eisenhower prom is the 18th of May.
There is a breather for finals and on June 12, 2007 there will be a 6:30 ceremony where Cassandra will graduate from high school.
The last picture of this series is Larry at the end of a running cool down. He is mellow and goofy.
Notice Phil's car.... no snow. Notice the grill.... no snow. The last snow was 12 days ago. Notice the green stuff on the bush and lawn. This proves the statement. 'If you don't like the weather, just stick around a few minutes.'
