Busy, busy, busy dancing, swimming and cycling

For anyone who thinks I may have disappeared in the last week, I've been swamped working on final preparations for my daughter's big spring show this week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, April 12-14). I am the Dad who heads up building all the stage sets and coordinating everything getting on and off stage during the show, as well as putting together the slide show just prior to the finale. There are about 50 girls on the high school drill team, and there will be another 100 or so from different dance troups performing in the show (32 dance numbers in all, show runs almost 3 hours). The web site to the drill team is Clear Brook Celebrities. You'll even see today through Saturday an announcement on the first page from me about needing backstage help with props (if you are in the Houston area, come to the show, it is amazing). The picture on the page of the girls in uniform looking down is the last slide in the show before the finale begins, and as the screen lifts up, the girls are standing behind it in that exact formation, very cool.

As for swimming, I'm consistently swimming 2000m on 5 days a week, so roughly 10,000 meters a week (6.2 miles) and cycling is still hovering around 75 miles. I am ecstatic to start running again on Monday.

Check back tomorrow for pictures from dress rehearsal tonight...

Robert, enjoy that time with your daughter and know that you will look back on it fondly. It is so incredible the similarity of what you are doing this week and what I did at this same time frame with my daughter back in 2003, her Senior year at Plano High School in the Dallas area. Have loads of fun. We still watch the DVD every now and then and enjoy it.
