High School Musical on Ice

We had a good time last night.  I have never been to a “Disney on Ice” show and enjoyed “something new…it feels so right, just to be with you…” to steal one of the songs.  Since it is a hallmark show of their growing up years, I think it is something two little friends will always remember.  I’m glad someone wasn’t able to go and we were invited.   I probably never would have had the foresight to have bought the tickets when they were cheaper.

We laughed at how many times our little adventure was bloggable just getting there.  We are, shall we say, not used to getting out.  I wish I could quote the Yahoo! directions, but one line involved four different road numbers for one exit.  I had to read it three or four times just to find the one number and by then, we’d heard the four numbers twelve times and were both starting to shutter.

We stopped by “Claire’s”, the obvious choice for a Mommy-daughter outing, and picked up some needed birthday gift items.  Then, we had some good soup on a cool night at a favorite restuarant which I will not mention to try to save you all some cravings.  

My favorite song was “Get Your Head in the Game” with the basketball dribbling sequence.  It was my favorite in the show, too.  The characters mannerisms were so much like the actors!  The combination of dance, theatre, and impeccable timing and execution made it a good show.  They did the first movie before intermission and the second after.  Quite a feat!  It ran about 1 hour and 45 minutes of show-time. 

We had printed instructions to the area, from the arena to the restaurant, and from the restaurant home.  I’ve never done that with travel, but it was wonderful planning!  Saved us a ton of time and frustration getting turned around in unfamiliar territory.  I need to remember that!

    Wow, what a great endeavor to drive up there for that alone 🙂 But a great mommy/daughter date. I’ll have to keep things like that in mind for the near future.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
