Day 15!

Today was the school spelling bee at Lucy's school. She has been so excited to be the representative for her class and we have been studying A LOT! However, we tried to remind her as well that it is just an honor to be chosen and that she would be up against other 3rd graders from their homerooms as well as 4th and 5th graders. We wanted her to just do her best and know that whether she went out in the first round or somewhere else along the way, we would be proud of her.

All the spellers

I only took a picture of her spelling during the practice round because I didn't want to make her nervous.


Well, wouldn't you know, that smarty pants went and won the whole spelling bee!! She will now go on to compete at the district spelling bee in February! Her face when she won was just priceless!!!




We are so proud of our Lucy and can't wait to celebrate with her later on. She is at her first sleepover tonight for her friend Colleen's birthday so it's been a big day for her!

Day 14 (1 day late!)

Alex loves his letter people. In fact, what he wants most for Christmas are the letter people puppets like he has in his class at school. His teacher let me copy her CD of songs and he has memorized them all! He was singing while we were out running errands so here is part of Ms. F's song!!



Day 13! (2 days late!)

Sorry about not posting. . . things have been so busy. I came home from school on both Wednesday and Thursday and went straight to bed!


Here is our annual attempt at rocking chair pictures. . . I have no idea why they made some of the faces they did! I don't think I had one good picture in the bunch! Oh well!!

Day 12!

Here are a few pictures from our preschool Christmas program tonight. We had about 120 preschoolers up on stage - it was a fun evening, but I am so glad to check it off!

Day 11!

One of my favorites pictures we take. . .I love seeing how big they get each year. The boys took their traditional one together with all the animals. . .






And then the aftermath . . . .


Both boys then decided they needed one by themselves this year.




And then, of course, it was Lucy's turn! Look at those long legs sticking out!

Day 10!

Today was the last performance of Annie. Our Friday performance got cancelled due to the snow, so they moved it to today. There were about 13 kids missing from the cast for various reasons, but they all came together so that all the parts were covered. Of course, the nice thing about that was that Lucy had a surprise solo in the middle of it!



I took a few others today - I promise that tomorrow I will post some non-musical photos. (But this has been all we have done for the past few days!!)






 With so many people gone, that meant some of the silver trays were up for grabs - Charlie was so thrilled to get to carry a tray!!



Those glasses!!!








Lucy's friend, Colleen, also got some extra roles too.


Lucy's homeroom teacher, Mrs. Walek, came to the play today. I think Lucy was so excited to have so many of her teachers come and support her.

Just missing Lilly in our picture - the girls think she must be sick. :(

Charlie also wanted a picture with Colleen! :)
