The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. Vince Lombardi

Look at all those high achieving 6th graders!
Got a closer view of my guys.
Those two goofballs are celebrating their birthday today (about a month late) with a big birthday bash here with one chocolate cake, chips & dip, pizza, and a bunch of friends. I'm celebrating that the sun is shining and the park is a short walk where they can play ball! And, they got up early to pick up in the basement. "All we need is for you to vacuum, Mom." Gladly.
We're celebrating the end of a school year, and end of high school for Bobby, the end of routine, and the start of summer, new adventures, and the freedoms of fewer scheduled activities.
I'm even celebrating a recent rejection from a theatre company in Seattle. They said, "No thanks" to Coffee Shop Confessions, and I'm not sad. We have already had tons of success with it. Other coffee shops in the area are asking if we'll come perform there (our run is done, but who knows). You have to celebrate the No Thank Yous because that means you're putting your work out there. If you don't submit it and risk the rejection, you'll never hear the longed-for YES!
Go. Create. Inspire!
