Back in December, Lindsey tried out for her Jr. High Musical "Lion King Jr" and was cast as Sarabi (Simba's mom). She was really excited and as soon as Christmas break was over, she was basically at the school every day until 6:00 p.m. She worked hard and did an amazing job of balancing the play, school, soccer, Young Women's, dance, etc.
The week before Spring Break, it was show time! They performed on a Wednesday, Thursday & Friday night. Jon and Jack went on Wednesday (while I took the other kids to Kate's jazz class for observation week). Then, we all went on Thursday and Friday.
I was absolutely amazed at how well the show went! It was cast absolutely perfectly! Each role was amazing and those kids were so talented and funny and incredible! I literally cried with pride and amazement and couldn't fall asleep on Thursday night because I kept thinking how amazing it was.
Lindsey was spectacular and even cried in the scene where the lioness' were mourning Mufasa's death. We had so many family and friends come and support Lindsey and we were so grateful for that!
