We watched the sunset on the beach-so fun! But, actually, we were all freezing in this picture! The wind was biting enough to make it quite cold. Nevertheless, it was gorgeous and the kids seemed immune-rushing around gathering up seashells, or throwing sticks in the waves.
In March we had the special treat of watching Grant perform in his fifth grade "musical". The music teacher put together a play with some fifth graders acting as characters, and the rest on risers singing the group songs.
The play was a story of European immigrants to America in the 1800's. Grant had the role of the father of the featured family. He sang the only solo of the night and amazed us all with his beautiful voice.
Brenna participated in the junior high play this year. The production was Once Upon A Wolf, a story about the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood who doesn't want to be a bad guy anymore, and he goes from fairy tale fairy tale trying to find a better role. Brenna was both the stepsisters from Cinderella. She had a puppet for each and used different voices. She enjoyed being a part of it.
One of my friends shared this cute activity and we did it as a family for FHE. We had teams and Rob put came up with some additional games (shooting q-tips out of a straw at a paper-plate target, for example)
