|One evening we took time out to make homemade strawberry shakes. I didn't really drink the whole glass I'm holding. Since I'm lactose intolerant, that would not have been a great idea.|
|The kids who were available at the time hung candy canes on the tree.|
|Jasmine had her concert last night. She played the xylophone and chimes.|
|Seriously, I could have piled this a lot higher but I felt kind of greedy. The chef said I did a great job of stacking and should have piled it higher.|
|Then you take it to the grill. You choose between several kinds of rice or noodles which are added at that time.|
|The chef was kind of bored because we were about the only ones there at 9:00, so he created a grease fire for us and demonstrated what happens when you add water to a grease fire.|
On Friday the second grade classes are going to the zoo. Unfortunately, due to really poor and unacceptable behavior from Kaleb, his teacher is not allowing him to go. I agree and I am not intervening. The decision was not made lightly and I believe he is the only one being left behind so perhaps this is what will get his attention. Tyler and Jessica are going to meet Kayla's class at the zoo. She had been doing really well at school. Sometimes she starts to get an attitude when she's corrected, but she has been able to catch herself (with a little help) and fix the situation before it becomes a problem. We are proud of her improvement. And she likes the extra privileges she gets when I don't have to constantly redirect or supervise her.
The army band plays at the civic center Friday night. I have tickets for all eight of us, but am not sure that it's going to work out with everyone's schedules. I'm hoping.
Jessica and Jasmine have two performances of the church program this coming weekend. Then there are a lot of appointments and activities the following week. We are all ready for vacation!!!!
I haven't posted any videos for a long time so I'm going to see if I can post a couple.
You can hear Jasmine on the xylophone. She does a great job on her part. She doesn't have straight melody, so you'll hear some harmony in these videos.
