Matric Farewell

One Matric Farewell coming up. Actually it's now done and dusted. It was my oldest matric farewell / ball on Wednesday evening and it was a blast. He looked so smart in his suit. Everything just had to be turquoise, it is his absolute favorite color. This made me get some turquoise cushions to go with the lounge and put up some nice turquoisie curtains for him to go with "his" theme for the evening. It is just another 10 days then he starts with his record exams. Another two months then he is finished with school and has the world literally in the palm of his hands then. He wants to go into drama / film / charity work next year. We will worry about it in another two months time. Not to stressed about it at the moment, was stressed about what we are going to do two months ago. Now I'm just working through farewells, forty days, exams and just wrapping my head around the here and nows for now. I'm sharing one or two pics of the evening, this says happiness to me.

Our First Premiere

We were so excited as a family, this was our first film premiere where the kids got a taste of the other side of film making. They got to see the final product they worked on in one form or another. All three were part of the movies called, Second Day, iBalaclava and the Prodigal. I thought we all looked so stunning in our best. Today I'm sharing a bit of our joy. I'm sharing one of the trailers as well, and in one of the scenes my daughter is sitting on the floor in the trailer. At the end of the month the kids will be acting in another stage production at the Civic Centre with a total of eight shows. I can say it is hard work and a lot of dedication, and this is something they want to do, I'm such a proud theatre mamma.
