Also, the play for Shakespeare Camp was cast! We are doing A Midsummer Night's Dream. We don't find out the cast until May, though, because that's when we get our scripts. Shakespeare Camp is pretty intense and majorly exhausting (as putting on an entire Shakespeare play would be for anyone), but it's usually the most fun I have every summer. Our practices start in the afternoon and go into the evening instead of in the morning, which is really nice because we don't lose sleep from waking up early. We see each other so much, by the end of the performance we're sick of each other! It's delightful.
I'm SO ready for summer. We've had 70-degree weather lately. But, alas, we live in South Dakota, the land of unpredictable and COLD weather. Today the high is 69. Tomorrow the high is 39. Monday, it's 37. You see my point? We aren't guaranteed warm weather until late May, usually. And then there's the ever-present possibility of a do-over of last year, when we had an enormous ice storm in mid-April. ("Why, why?" she asked the sky. "Why must you torment us so?" The sky gave a low cackle and said nothing.)
