The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

We've had a busy few weeks for afterschool activities.  My daughter played Glinda the Good Witch of the South in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  She tried out after Christmas and started rehearsing in February.  It turned out great.  I am so proud of her.  She had a small part but this is the first play she's been in so I told her this was the way to do it.  All the kids did a good job.  The rehearsing paid off and everyone really enjoyed it. 

I bought her a small pink rose bush rather than a bouquet so she can keep it to remind her of her part as Glinda.  I also got her a Glinda Barbie made from in the year she was born.  I think she really liked that. 

Hope you're having a great weekend!



  1. Just lovely, I really like what you did to commemorate this special time for her.

  2. Loving the idea of the rose bush..who knows, with each play she is in, you quite possibly could have an entire rose garden marking all of her accomplishments..happy planting!

  3. What a pretty Glinda she made and what a grerat idea to buy the bush instead of the cut stems! I wish I had thought of that when my daughter was dancing. See what we learn on blogs!!

  4. That is one beautiful Glinda! Her hair held the curl so well. I love the idea of the rose bush. What a way to preserve a great memory!
