My Weekend

This morning at 7:45am (far too early for a Sunday morning) my amazing weekend continued. The early part was totally worth it, a group of students met at 8:00 ready to help a lady we didn't know who has to be moved out by tomorrow and she had just gotten out of the hospital a 1/2 hour before we got there!! She was so grateful and overwhelmed to have the help.
Our plan for the day was to go to Valentino's and take advantage of the college student discount on the buffet, then go to Seward for the Wissmann family's concert and musical. But this morning I heard about the farmers market so Rachel and I went to check it out, we came back with some very yummy looking veggies and decided to make our own meal.

When it was all said and done we ate a very yummy meal (x6) and still have 1/2 dozen of corn, 3/4 of a GIANT Zucchini, 3 cucumbers, tomato, and a pepper left over. And just as a side note, the Valentio's Buffet (with the student discount) would have cost $5.25 each and our farmer's market loot cost $4.50 all together! We were pretty proud of ourselves, we felt like smart poor college students!

Next we were off to Seward, NE for "Foundations of Freedom" I was so excited to see our dear friends the Wissmann Family and introduce them to my college friends.

The cast included over 30 people!

Musicals are always fun but when your friends are the actors it makes it even better!

They started writing in April and by the 4th of July it was ready to go. Ruth Wissmann wrote the script and Rachel wrote the songs, it was absolutly wonderful. It retold the story of our nation's beginning with true quotes from our founding fathers who's goal was to form a new nation under God.
