This weekend: Battle of the bands in support of our favorite guitarist-- they did awesome! Recovering from a looooong week with very little sleep. Baseball and lacrosse at the park.  Staying up too late again, running errands, driving class with the teens, birthday parties, and cleaning.


On the list this week:

  • rugby
  • lacrosse
  • dance
  • park
  • Zac is off.
  • no dentist- always a good start
  • project life-- every time I try to start I find I am missing one thing. I vow to get it started this week.
  • homeschool- make paper and penguins are on the list this week
  • movement- I lagged at the end of last week between being busy and no sleep. Won't let that happen again.
  • Lacrosse tournament- tis the season
  • rugby meeting
  • Guitar lesson
  • I'm thinking some kind of surprise field trip is in order one afternoon this week.

What is on your list?

the big day

Last night Alex had the privilege of playing with some of her classmates during a professional concert at the college.  I took some pics ahead of time because I didn't take my camera with me.


They spent part of the day rehearsing and learning from the professional musicians.


The venue was pretty crowded.


The played a song not normally taught before senior year.


And received a standing ovation.  They brought the house down.


We're very proud of her. :)


In my head

Lyrics to Dream :
I was a little girl
Alone in my little world
Who dreamed of a little home for me
I played pretend between the trees
And fed my houseguests bark and leaves
And laughed in my pretty bed of green

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest swing
I had a dream

Long walks in the dark
Through woods grown behind the park
I asked God who I'm supposed to be
The stars smiled down at me
God answered in silent reverie
I said a prayer and fell asleep

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest tree
I had a dream


Now I'm old and feeling gray
I don't know what's left to say
About this life I'm willing to leave
I lived it full, I lived it well
As many tales I live to tell
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now
To fly from the highest wing
I had a dream
