I received this email today from Matthew's Choir Teacher:
Here is a picture of the Heritage and West Madison 5th grade Honor Chorus members that performed last Friday at Samford University. They were part of the Alabama Music Educators Association state-wide chorus festival. They rehearsed music with me and by themselves over the summer and the beginning of this school year. Then went down for a full day of rehearsals with 200 other chorus members and their guest conductor Ken Berg, who is out of this world awesome! The performance was spot-on, magnificent! Seriously, the concert was beautiful and the experience was unforgettable!
A few months ago, our pastor showed two churches battling it out on their signs whether dogs go to heaven. I posted the link on my FB page and one of my brother's friends manipulated the pictures to look like this. (It was Kris Cox, in case you're wondering, Mom) I m still laughing. I'll put the link for the original in here later so check back.
We had a quiet Fall Break. The kids took some skating lessons and we visited the PumpkinPatch yesterday. Time is going so fast. It seems like yesterday when they were toddling around picking their pumpkin, now
My kids love to watch the Food Network and make all their favorites. Sundays are awesome, Lauren takes over the kitchen, I watch for the most part. I was afraid this Sunday afternoon activity would end with our little bitty kitchen apartment, but nope, it still happens and is just as good. It's a bit challenging but it works...we will see how this works on Thanksgiving...I'm still trying to figure out where to put the tree for Christmas so this might make celebrating this holiday a bit more of an adventure. I am hoping we will be in our new house by Easter (it just got shingles so I know Christmas is out and we will still be in the apartment a bit past the New Year).
I don't have a big dream in life, just Sunday dinner with the family and filling up a pew at Church. I am living my dream. How many people can say that?
This was a busy week for us. Miss Hannah went to Dauphin Island down by Mobile on a field trip, I never had field trips like that when I went to school. I don't have any pictures of her in the marshes, mud, boat trip, or dissecting a squid...I do have this one...just about to get on the bus for her big adventure. She had a blast, I missed her, and I am glad she is home. I missed her.
All blog entries are done in 3 minutes or less...it is all the "me time" I can spare. I am a BBC Pride and Prejudice female who reads American History for pleasure...I love my children and God above all else.
