I clearly remember the day my mother sat me down in our kitchen and said we needed to talk. I was 14 or 15 years old. "Priorities" she said. "You need to decide what your priorities are! You simply cannot be in EVERYTHING!!" Yup - I was one of those. Field Hockey, Yearbook, Student Council, Choir, Youth Group, Church Choir... and now I wanted to try out for our school's production of Cheaper by the Dozen too!! Did I remember that there was actual school work to do?? TOO MUCH! TOO MUCH!!
So I sat there with my Mom and decided what to cut out and what to keep...but I was very clear in my mind - that the play was NOT going to be on the cut-list! Well, as it turned out...I helped with makeup that year and other odds and ends. Crew...not cast. And that ended up being just right! And as things have a tendancey to do... "Cheaper by the Dozen" came back around in my life. This year, Veritas Academy performed this iconic bit of theater and I was overjoyed to be able to photograph it! I invite you to enjoy these images as much I I did taking them, and as much as these students enjoyed making them!!
