Check out this huge pumpkin crop we've had this year. Whew! Picking these guys was exhausting, ha!
So I was going to write "hope you had a good weekend" but then I realized that when I post this it will be Wednesday already and that thereby reminded me of my lameness dealing with time this week.
I mean, how is it not still Monday?
We had a fabulous weekend. It was a whirlwind of activity but it was lots of fun.
We have some promising things on the horizon and we are praying and trusting God to see those through. I'll let you know of course as things develop.
Let's see, what else can I record as an update? I love to write things down on here to keep track of what the kids are doing.
Emma is in the Nutcracker again this year. She is in the party scene in the beginning when Clara is given the Nutcracker as a gift. It's about a 30 minute role she has and we are thrilled for her. This weekend she was also asked to be a Polichinelle girl (she was this part last year) and she was so tickled that they asked her. So she will be in both acts of the ballet.
On a side note, I have no idea how this girl does everything that she does. She's just amazing. This summer she developed a cold (I thought!) during her ballet summer intensive classes. Summer intensive was ballet every day for 8 hours a day for two weeks straight. She missed one day with her illness and then I made her go back to ballet. Turns out the girl had pneumonia. Pneumonia! And she made it through. I felt really bad when I found out how sick she was but also really proud of her that she struggled through and was successful.
Calvin is in pottery classes at the local art museum. He was invited to submit one of his pieces into the art museum to be on display. I am so proud of him. He LOVES pottery which is adorable and he is so proud of himself.
Well I think that's it for now.
Hope you all are doing well!
