Something has happened with my eldest child lately. Suddenly, I'm wierd and lame! But only in public..appearantly at home I'm still fine and he enjoys my company quite a bit. He is especially particular about our interactions around his peers.

S left on a 4 day, 3 night class trip this morning. There was no hug for mom as he boarded the bus with his classmates this morning. The best I could get from him was a reluctant handshake. It appeared he'd rather walk away and pretend he didn't know me. Ahhhh...emerging adolesence!

Preparing to move and little thespians

Helloo faithful friends!

I apologize at my silence, and lack of updates. I haven't been much in a writing mood recently..which doesn't mean anything is wrong..I just haven't been writing.

So here's the scoop: last week D and his class had an amazing opportunity...some West Afriacn performers came to his school and worked with his class for a whole week. They learned about African dance, music, culture, and a bit of Swahili! They were also invited to perform with the group at a local arts festival. This was a big deal!! Here is my 8 year old in his youtube debut:

My 11 year has a class play tonight...he's excited and rather nervous. So I'll perhaps have some photos or video to share of him as a norse giant.

And we're moving, in 2 and a half weeks! W00t! I've begun the packing/cleaning process..but there is still plenty to do!
