Dance ~ The kids had their first performance of the year. They danced with their dance studio on our city streets for a fitness awareness weekend. They had a great experience. They did a jazz piece, warm-up exercises and improvisation to music. To top it off, a production company was doing a music video near the dancers and asked Anne and one of her friends to be in their music video as extras. What an exciting opportunity! The music video will be released in late October.
|Yes, she danced on a trash can!|
Home Economics ~ One of my goals for them this year was to paint a piece of furniture. They painted an old green coffee table black this week. They gave it a new, fresh look. We are considering decorating the top with toile wallpaper and a clear finish.
They also helped me make freezer meals. This was our first time. We are reviewing a great website soon and were given the opportunity to learn how to make freezer meals. We now have 13 meals in the freezer and were able to take a meal to a family that is coping with a mother who has a very difficult illness.
So, it was a very busy and educational week. I am off to rest a bit. I am one tired Mom!
