Great Start to the Weekend!

Last night we took my mom and father-in-law to see Cirque du Soleil Alegria in Roanoke.  I knew it would be good but I had no idea how impressive it would be.  The strength and flexibility of the performers was unbelievable.  To be honest, I watched with my mouth open in awe most of the time.


Mama and I just may have done a bit of giggling during this performance.  Some of their body positions were just plain old funny.  How one bends their spine in these positions I just don’t know.

It’s bright and sunny here, perfect for my tennis team’s match this morning.  Later today I am looking forward to having some time to work my yard.  I can’t wait to mow the grass and do a bit of weeding in my flower beds.  After being trapped in my classroom for a week, a full day outside is just what the doctor ordered.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Cirque du Soleil is my favorite!! They really do put on quite a performance! The music is so beautiful too. I usually buy the soundtrack from each show that we’ve seen. Enjoy the beautiful day!

  2. I’ve never seen Cirque du Soleil before, except on TV. I am always AMAZED by them on Tv though. I cannot imagine being so strong and flexible. Of course, this is coming from the girl who can’t even do a pull-up without help (that’s embarassing). Glad y’all had a good time. Hope you have a great weekend. Happy weeding!

  3. LOL! I would have laughed a bit too, it is amazing! Glad you have some time to get outside!!

  4. I’ve always wanted to see a Cirque du Soleil show! I think I would be in awe too! Love the pictures you shared, so glad you got to spend time with your mom. Hope you did well in your tennis match!

  5. Sounds like fun! So glad you and your mom were able to enjoy. Hope you have a blessed weekend. Calra

  6. We had tickets to see Cirque du Soleil a couple of years ago but ended up giving them to my son and daughter in law as Mr. Bruce and I couldn’t attend. Sure looks like a wonderful performance Paula. Please tell your mama Happy Mother’s Day for me.
