The Mystery of the Seahorse is going wonderfully. Anne has performed in five shows so far with three left to go. She has really enjoyed the role of Pearl, a fish. Since it is a main character role that is on stage most of the show, she doesn't have to change her costume at all this year. This role has also required a combination of acting and dancing. Anne is feeling so much more confident about all that she is working toward this month and the first week of June. It is a delight to see her bloom
|Bert and Pearl are a couple in the show.|
We also learned all about the Beacon Manufacturing fire that destroyed the factory in 2003. At one time, Beacon was the largest producer of blankets in the world. The fire was so big that it required 24 regional fire departments to battle the blaze.
Dean has been doing lots of archery this week. He is using his older brother's old compound bow, which is for left-handed people. Since Dean is right handed he is using it a bit differently, but his aim is true and solid. We drew a target on an old fitted sheet and put it on an old mattress.
We spent a morning learning about the Notre Dame de Paris this week. We learned all about Gothic architecture. We then put together a 3D model of the Notre Dame cathedral. It was much harder than we anticipated, but I think it came out pretty good.
One sad note of the week was finding out that our sweet dog has cancer. We had a lump removed from his side and they found lots of infected tissue under the surface. They removed all that they could and sent it away to pathology. It will be two full weeks before we know what kind of cancer and treatment he needs. We are praying it is a simple cancer to fight. He is almost 9 years old and totally healthy otherwise.
