Oh My Goodness....

Time is just flying by these last few days. The weekend was a blur of ballet. The Ballet SJ Nutcracker opened on Thursday. So far there have been 7 performances. The girls have been in 3, Phil has been in 4. And it's not done yet! lol Add to that cookies, fudge, toffee, handmade gifts...life is a little insane. Oh, and did I mention that somehow, thru all of this...we still need to find time to homeschool?

Ainsley is terribly excited as she just completed the third grade math curriculum. She is feeling very proud of herself knowing that after the holidays she gets to start fourth grade.

Mackenzie is also doing very well with her classes, while spending more and more time pursuing her artistic bent. She is trying to do some work with blue screens (impromptu table cloth hung from curtain rod). While she hasn't been totally successful, she is having so much fun trying. And what is she trying? Well, she has composed a song, both music and lyrics and is recording what looks to be twins of herself singing. I am always amazed with her talent. Of course this means her computer drawings have fallen to the way side for now, but I am sure when she begins her next class that interest will be sparked once again.

Brighton? Brighton too is doing well. He has finally gotten the hang of a classroom, even if it is only virtual, and is doing quite well in his courses. Swimming remains his main focus.

So, what else? Finally got my plans together for CHA. Can't wait to go! I am taking three courses while there and am looking forward to meeting some of the manufacturers and designers I have gotten to "know" online. I have a layout that is drying on my desk and am hoping to make a Christmas house out of patterned paper in the next few days.
And today? Today I played with balls! Yeah...balls. Family wanted spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. And for years, I have wanted to make cake balls. So balls it was. hee hee
Did I mention that Mackenzie helped? Those are red velvet with cream cheese frosting. Yummy. We are dunking in white and milk chocolate. (Brighton wanted milk)
