Sahara helped me create her invites to her b-day party on the computer. We attached driving directions to the back and she will start handing them out tomorrow at school. We are praying for good weather because I don't know what I will do with the kids if it is raining or the yard is a soppy mess from previous rain. Both the kids will be with Dad in Memphis for her real b-day so we are having it the weekend after.
Sahara went to her first concert last night. It was down the road at a church about a mile from the house. Several heavy metal Christian bands set up and played for about 3 hours. I dropped the girls off but about 1 1/2 hours later Sahara called as said to come and see myself, bring Canyon.
Saltbox was the group Sahara was 'hanging' with for that first 1 1/2 hours. She said they were a lot of fun and very nice people. Here they are setting up their stage and getting ready to play.
Sahara, Brittney and Canyon after the show.
Sahara and Brittany with Joel, the drummer. He is a little guy :) And a girl named Mercedes who thought she needed to be in every ones picture and jumped up behind just when I took the shot.
Before the night was over, they got their faces autographed by the band members.
They had a great time and I hope this church makes this an annual thing. Sahara was right up in front at the stage the whole time they played banging her head.
Canyon was scared of the bandanna Joel wore and wouldn't get close to him. And the music was way too loud for him and he was actually shaking while the where playing and hiding behind me.
The kids have one week of summer left. I get to go back on Monday. They don't go till Wednesday. They have their school supplies and new bookbags. Canyon has all new shorts and his pants should make it thru this winter. Next year he will have to get all new pants. Sahara has all new pants and a couple shirts. She feels her clothes shopping needs to be kicked in overdrive, but honestly, she has enough shirts (and pants and shorts) that she can wear a different outfit till Thanksgiving and not have to wear the same thing twice. The girl is loaded!
