I'm not sure where they get it from.

Well, the time has come. My girls are finally able to put their over-dramatic personalities to some good use.

My girls are involved in CYT (Christian Youth Theatre), a national organization that was brought here by a couple of awesome people about a year ago.

K Belle was the first to get involved. This is her second year and absolutely adores it. She was in the first production, "Godspell," cast in the second production, "Seussical, Jr.," (which we had to pull her from ... long story that I may have posted about under tough parenting), and is now in their third production, "Annie, Jr." (one of my favorites).

La Petite Belle gave up soccer this year to also be in CYT. That was huge! She has also been cast in "Annie, Jr."

La Petite Belle as an "additional orphan." Here she is on the far left.
K Belle as "July," one of Annie's orphan buds who has a few speaking and singing parts. Here she is second from the right. (She was a little disappointed that she was the oldest orphan, but I encouraged her to make the best of it. How many times will she get to play an orphan? Besides the typical days when her real mom forgets to pack her lunch. Not many after this year.)
Here's a closer look ... she's behind Annie on the right.
This is a really great organization. K Belle has grown in confidence and ability over the last year. I'm so proud of both of them.

For more information and to purchase tickets for this weekend's performances, go here. Or if you're local, you can also contact me for tickets.

What a busy week ahead!

Such great memories for her! CYT reminds me of CKT in Karen Kingsbury's books.
