elizabeth came home from school the other day with papers with information about the middle school's new play they were going to be doing.
a musical, jungle book.

she shocked me by wanting to try out for one of the minor parts, the baby elephant.
she tried out, but didn't get the part. she did make it into the elephant herd.

the next two months will be filled with play practice.
