TheaterBefore our Texas trip, these two auditioned for a local homeschool group's play, Aladdin. We couldn't make the live audition, so they sent in audition tapes. They made up a little Charlotte's Web skit, which was pretty cute. I am always so proud of my children when they have enough bravery to do the things that I was too afraid to do when I was young. Sis even sent in a tape of her singing Like I'm Gonna Lose You (Meghan Trainor) because she wanted a singing part. There is no part of my 11 year old self that could have done that! (I would have wanted to, but I don't think I could have followed through.) She's so much like me, so much like I was back then - painfully shy at times. I love to see that she takes my encouragement and advice and challenges herself to overcome.
AND they were rewarded for their effort. Sis got the role of Princess Jasmine, and Ninja would be Razoul. Now they would be preparing for two plays. They were already working on The Cat in the Hat in their homeschool academy theater classes.
more craft stick building for Ninja
and more bridge building for Dash

Friends' Birthday Parties/Sleepover
Several of his school buddies were there, and they also played with strangers.
It was pretty serious! (He had lots of fun.)
It was held at a gymnastic's place. They also got to swim.
Exercise/Special Kid Time

I hope these two are friends forever.
Momma's Night Out
Cali still lets the kittens nurse. I love that my Baby Girl is into attachment parenting just like her Momma (me). :)
And they are still unbelievably irresistible.
