This is the chandelier in the new dining room. It's not a great picture. The electrician hung it high so nothing would happen to it before we got the table in there. Once the table is in, we will drop it and I'll take another picture.
BTW - Anybody looking for a real nice house in New England? I know of a lovely 4 br colonial with 14 closets that is up for sale.
I've been busy being a taxi driver this week. #1 Son is in a football camp and LLB is in a musical theatre (Lion King) camp. He's so psyched about football (he has yet to be tackled, or hit, or bumped) that he thinks he's trying out for middle school football. HAH! I think NOT! She scored the part of older Simba. She's thrilled! I asked her if she wanted to do Music And Drama camp next summer with her brother. Her response, "No, I'll get too nervous if I have to get up on the stage and perform." LOL!! The child dances in 3 full length productions a year - up on a stage! When I reminded her of that and the fact that everyone gets nervous, she told me she'd think about it. (FYI: She's definitely off to camp next summer with her brother and I get a week home alone with Mr. Bug!!)
LLB was getting a little discouraged with her trumpet. She was having trouble hitting the G. She asked me if she could switch over to bassoon. I told her she could speak with the band teacher about that and took her over to see him yesterday. He tried her out on bassoon - her hands are too small. (Yippee!) He had her play the french horn and trumpet for him. He was blown away (no pun intended) by the sound she got out of the trumpet. He definitely wanted her on trumpet, but gave her the option. He told her that the trumpet would be easy and that she could go far fast. He also told her that if she wanted a real challege, french horn would give her that. The band director and I both heaved a sigh when she said she'd stick with the trumpet. Whew! He got his good trumpet player and I get to keep hearing the instrument I purchased for big bucks.
