Lily recently completed the Twin Cities Theater Camp(!) production of Urinetown. She had a great time! Her character’s name was Emily Ocean. It’s an intensive 5 week program, and Lily missed over a week of it due to our summer vacation, but she rallied and was a big presence on stage for the performances!
This may be on McSweeney’s, but it’s a great history lesson on US depredations in Latin America. Yup, we owe these people at the border. Big time.
After 2 seasons of no scores, the Sharks (Lily’s soccer team) finally scored a goal, in the last game of the second season. And it was Lily that scored it! “Elation” falls short of the screaming!
If there are any Sharks that see this, Thea’s name is Lily, but we called her Thea (short for Dorothea which is her middle name) because there was already a Lily on the team!
Starting to fill in nicely!
Finally replaced the giant elm that the city removed last year. The ginkgo is looking good, and we’ve covered the huge dirt patch. Rabbits ate my dwarf dogwood so we had to add some fencing. I hope we’re done with it for a while!
