Martha Graham lady M is heading your way (follow the link if this doesn't sound make sense).
see her blog for more. I ran in the virtual Roar 'N Run Race to help promote CHD Awareness. The above is me with my medal on Sunday and wearing read to help with awareness too.
8. On Sunday, we took the entire family to the OKC Philharmonic's Discovery series orchestra concert. It was awesome. 45 minutes of a blend of music they recognize (Frozen and Beauty & the Beast) and some others they don't know, but that are quite famous. There was, again, a good mix of dancers, actors, choral work, etc... supplementing the music and adding more action. Everyone did great, even E. It was a risk to take him at his nap time and after sitting still in mass in the morning. He did wander back and forth between Brent and I a bit, but it was fine int his context as everyone was a bit wiggly and not the normal totally quiet orchestra situation. Hooray for family music time!
9. B is now reading a book that is 562 pages long. So far this year, even though I've read maybe 10 books already, none of them have been that long. I am, of course, reading this one with him as well (It is the first book in another of the Percy Jackson related series). The books also seem to make him want to learn Greek now that he has discovered that there is a whole other alphabet. He has put that on his list for after he learns Spanish. I'm dubious, but go B. We're going to at least let him hear some Greek and learn a few phrases when we visit our friend Evan this summer who is originally from Greece. He is also learning a fair bit of Greek and now Roman mythology. Very interesting books!
10. This week, we're working on Valentines (B's are homemade, the other kids picked from the store selection), going to LOCAL one last time, prepping for class parties, keeping up with my running and work, and getting ready for a few more family birthdays coming up. Most of us have Monday off so perhaps we'll find a little mini adventure and have that to share soon.
