We've had a busy week in the Haynes' household. It was VBS at church. This year's theme was Super Heros and the theme verse was 1 Timothy 4:12 " Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young". The girls had so much fun with their friends at VBS learning, crafting, singing, dancing, playing games, etc.... My friend, Carrie, and I volunteered to work the recreation time for preschoolers this year. We worked with 3's, 4's and 5's on stretching, relay races, and learning how to stand in a straight line and wait their turn =0). Each morning we were up and out of the door early.

The Bear got a haircut this week too. I convinced her and Daddy that it was a good idea.
Monday night Curly still had her weekly swim meet. They raced a very large team with a ton of swimmers. Curly got 4th place in both her individual free and her free relay. She was happy about it though because she got a new color ribbon to add to her collection.
Tuesday night, Curly and I had a special night at the Fox Theater. A few weeks ago, a local radio station was giving away tickets to the musical "Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat". To enter you just had to send in a picture of you dressed in your most colorful outfit. I sent in this one of the girls dressed very colorfully including The Bear's pink cast and Curly with all the bows that Aunt Shelley had made for them in her hair.
The station picked one winner a day for a week and we were one of the winners. We ultimately decided to make it a girls night out and invited one of Curly's friends, Kathryn Anne, and her mommy, Jennifer (who I have known since college) to go with us. Jennifer even got us free parking next to the theater! Love free stuff. Daddy stayed home with The Bear. We all got dressed up and went to dinner beforehand at the OK Cafe. The show didn't start til 8. Curly was very impressed with the Fox Theater. She kept saying how much it looked like a castle. She probably would have been happy to just walk around and look at the theater all night. After intermission she was definitely getting tired and not really into the show anymore. I'm very thankful that I didn't pay for the tickets just to have her get sleepy. The show was good but unless you really know the story of Joseph, it was hard to follow. It definitely lived up to it name and was extremely technicolor and flashy.
