I have been very busy the past couple of weeks. This is the first year that each child has an extra curricular activity. What was I thinking? I'm worn out.
Princess Pink started dance classes last week. She says that she hates dancing and never wants to go back. I'm going to make her stick with it a few more weeks. Hopefully she will start to enjoy it.
Cinderella in January. She hopes to get the part of one of the mice or the cat. Her audition was last Saturday. She sang The Battle of New Orleans. More on her song choice later.
We are continuing to take our Tapestry of Grace studies at a slow pace. We finished up week 6 on James Madison and the War of 1812 today. I continue to be appalled at the dismal state of my own history education. We learned about Tecumseh, William Henry Harrison, James and Dolley Madison, and the Battle of New Orleans. We hope to make a trip to see the Dolley Madison exhibit in Greensboro soon. On a less serious not, we discovered Johnny Horton's version of The Battle of New Orleans. The Crafter enjoyed it so much that we found the background music for it and she used it for her audition. Here is the lego version.
