Eric has been doing theater this year and has enjoyed it so much.  It's a lot of work, but he's getting his best grades in all his classes ever, and having fun at the same time.  I am also happy because it helps with the sting of lonliness he has for his brothers. 
Last night we went to his performance of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing".  Eric did a great job and it was so fun watching him perform.  It was a little weird that he played a drunken womanizer, though.  At least he got to stretch himself!  There weren't enough guys in theater, so several girls had to play men.  They all did such a great job and I really appreciate his teacher for spending so much time with these students.  It was also fun watching our friend Chance, who we've known since he was about 4 years old.  He's grown into such a nice young man and such a good actor.

We're super proud of Eric and all his hard work.  He has always been a ham and loved to be the center of attention.  Whatever he chooses to do in life, he will do it well.

Who Does This???

Today we had Souper Saturday for our Relief Society Activity.  It was a lot of fun and there was such a great turn out.  When I got home I piled stuff on the countertops and was cleaning up.  I had a little cup of grease that I had set out from dinner a couple nights ago to get hard and then throw out.  As I moved a pan, I noticed this...

I screamed and ran down the hall to ask David (who was taking a nap) if he played a joke on me.  He looked at his watch (only 10 minutes into his nap) and answered with annoyance "Yes.  It was in the bottom of the pool".   And closed his eyes to go back to sleep.  So now I can't go in the kitchen to cook or clean.  He may be buying me dinner after all tonight, is all I can say!!  Who even does this kind of thing?  I'm so grossed out, but of course, I had to run in there and get a picture to blog about it.  If I can't be in the kitchen, I may as well be at the computer:)  I'm kinda wondering if he is the only husband who would dare do this kind of thing!  Ah, his sense of humor.  Or should I say UGH!!!
