Well...we started out with a mess...two 4H events going at the same time. However, we figured out a way to make it work. I don't do this often but we split up and went to both projects.
I dropped Sean and Henry off at a Share the Fun practice. Thankfully, they were planning scenery and I would not have been much help anyway. I went to the County Fashion Show to take pictures and judge the entries.
When I picked the boys up, they told me all about the ideas for the scenery. It sounds like we are going to have simple decorations. Since the idea is to honor the flag through out the skit, the main focus will be on the flag. Each character will be in the costume portraying their historic figure and the background will not change. The idea is a young man questions the importance of the flag to an older gentleman. So they are siting on a park bench in front of the county courthouse. The historical characters will come out in costume with props that relate to a scene with the flag. Hopefully, we can continue this idea as we continue with practice throughout the next month.
We all have a lot of work to do to get ready for the District Round Up. Looking forward to seeing all the hard work bring fruitful results.
