Busy in an understatement! She's been practicing diligently.
This is what we have to look forward to in just the next few weeks: We go on vacation (yes, visiting the Castle!), then she leaves for Leadership camp, she comes back has a day to practice and then she is going to compete in our Assembly's Stage Contest, which she has decided she wants to compete in the Professional division-- of course, that means it will be harder. I suggested trying for the Amateur division since this is her first contest, but what do I know? LOL I guess it is a good thing she likes to challenge herself! Then, that weekend she has a show, followed by the next weekend where she has 2 shows.
LOL, I'm already tired and summer hasn't even started! It's been a mass of juggling preparing for all the different shows and practices. Of course, they all are based on pretty much the same program, but she is tweaking each for that particular event. Mix that in with her studying for finals and we've been running! After that though it will be quieter as she doesn't have any more stage shows until August, at least at this point. She may be doing one on July 4th, but that isn't confirmed yet.
We'll see what happens also once she does the public performances for the rest of the summer. They usually spark the private party bookings. Its the only form of advertising she has done in the past. Although, another magician friend said last night that he'd also be willing to give her referrals if she would like them, so that's pretty cool. That gives her two different referral sources so we'll just see how it goes and whether or not she is going to need to do any other form of advertising or not. She has decided that she wants to open up her calendar year-round. In the past she has only performed in summer.
Always new adventures!
Again, glad to see you posting! It's been pretty quiet around here.
I guess it's time I make my monthly appearance here on Penguin! LOL
Sorry once again for the delay in responding. What can I say? I may be around a bit more often now, though. Great to see you still posting.
Hey, I'm assuming your daughter has competed in the competition you mentioned here in your post I quoted. How did she do and did she enter the professional contest or amateur one? Great to see she has some shows booked as well.
And how was the trip to the 'Castle' and who did you see perform? I've never been there but hope to one day.
You seem to be busy as a family but I like it that you do things as a 'family' as this is pretty much unheard of these days.
