Sorry for the missed post yesterday. Kinda scary that blogger has the occasional problem...really makes me want to backup everything. Probably shouldn't worry but I do but it looks like everything is back up and running.
So yesterday was a great day. We had 4 donations!! Thank you to Anne & Kyle, Lisa's Dad & Terri, Katrina, and Becky! Wow, what an amazing day!! It's going to take that kind of effort to make our goal this week. Spread the word and donate...only 7 days to go!!
Our crazy adventure with the movie continues. The girls are still having a blast. I will admit the schedule is really tough. We are there for most of the day (8 to 10 hours). Of course they aren't "working" the whole time. The majority of that time is spent waiting. A 5 minute warning turns into 30 or 45 minutes...which is tough when you're 4 years old! The girls are absolutely perfect in front of the camera...waiting for an hour in a room with minimal toys and 3 to 6 other toddlers??? not so much.
Still well worth the experience. The crew love the girls. It's very obvious to us that the crew is responding to how sweet our girls are. The director is even finding time to talk to the girls, get hugs and high fives. It's awesome to see.
I also can't say enough about how much pride we have standing back and watching them perform on camera. The girls are so beautiful...and listen so good. It's SO rewarding to see them do this in front of so many people and when it really matters. Very VERY rewarding as a parent.
I don't think I'm breaking any rules here. I won't mention names and the pics don't have any parts of the set in them...so this first one is Katy with the director. He saw us sitting on the side and invited the girls over to see from his perspective. Another day, Lisa said that the girls actually got to say "ACTION!!" Later that night, they were running around telling each other "action". Awesome.
Not to mention we are still about $1500 from our goal. I have faith!!
