Saturday night we got all dolled up for the second time last week for the "Dolly" Awards at the Theatre. These awards are the closest we'll ever get to the Tony's, and it was a very fancy and grown up evening. I felt like a grown up anyway. All three kids got called on stage and received a certificate and a "star" Tshirt. Jonathan also received the Young People's Student of the Year Award and the Outstanding Youth Volunteer Award. The hundreds of hours that he's put in there over the last few months have really paid off! He got two engraved gold star trophies and his name is engraved on two different plaques in the lobby of the theatre. When I have more time (like that's going to happen), I have a whole post about how proud my kids make me (don't worry there are plenty of real life humbling anecdotes that will be thrown in for good measure).
