There are good things and bad things about spending the colder months in Arizona. The good thing is we spend the colder months in Arizona. In other words, we missed out on Denver’s recent (if somewhat minor) snow storm. Instead, we were enjoying our evening glasses of wine on our patio.
But the bad thing is that we sometimes miss significant occasions in our grandkids’ lives. For example, this past week, our eldest granddaughter Adelaide — a 7th grader at Hamilton Middle School in Denver — had a role in her school play — We’ll Be Right Back After This Murder. She played Dorthella Hepplewhite who may or may not have murdered her brother. I don’t know because I DIDN’T GET TO SEE THE PLAY. Addie’s character had a significant number of lines, which isn’t a problem for Addie who likely not only memorized her own lines, but also those of all of her fellow cast members. It’s how she rolls. With luck, she was able to keep her lips from moving as she recited their lines along with them. The play apparently went very well, judging at least from the text messages I got from her throughout the two days that the play ran.
We couldn’t be more proud of her. I feel compelled to add that we knew she could be an actor from the time she was about 2 years old!
Have a great weekend.
