I mentioned that I would give an update on how the play went. Our family enjoyed the presentation on Friday evening. I was very impressed with the quality of the performance. All of the young people did a great job of portraying their characters. Caleb had a great time playing Matthew. In one line, Anne calls Matthew the “picture of kindness.” Hannah looked over at us and said, “Yeah, right!” We came home and Joanna put the movie in the VCR and showed me Matthew’s part. Caleb nailed it. We were very proud of him. (In a good way, of course). The seniors were selling refreshments, (coffee, soft drinks, cakes and cookies). The technical presentation was also incredible (lights, music, sound effects, etc.) All in all it was a wonderful night.
On Friday, Abigail and I went to Waffle House for breakfast and then drove to Durham where we watched the Clemson football team beat Duke 47-10. We arrived back in Wilson on Saturday evening in time to see the play again. The play must have been good if I went twice. The play was videoed and we will be buying a DVD to show to family members.
