History-Day weekend

What a History-Day whirl -wind Weekend!
Actually the whole week.. felt very whirly-swirly. Trying to get my business plan in by the deadline and helping with this project... I'm glad we not just survived the week.. but thrived.. it was crazy/busy .. but fun.

Here's Crash- while most people were content to just sit and wait for results.. she felt the need to open beauty shop.. offering beauty and hair tips.

Just kidding.

Her daughter was in a group that was performing.. and Crash was helped with costumes ...

Everyone did so good! I was so proud of all the kids in our school who competed. It's a little scary competing academically. I thought they handled the pressure really well. They were so composed - while I was nervous and giddery for them all.. I could just tell they all put so much work into each of their projects and performances... I just wanted them all to do well.

My son made a board and then had a small interview.

Here we are waiting... doesn't he look so handsome? I can't believe my baby is growing up!

He wasn't selected to go onto States.
-just as well.. I don't think my nerves could take it.

Both Crash's daughter and son are going onto States! WAY to GO GUYS!
I was only able to watch one of the performances... but I was so impressed. They had a few glitches and mishaps.. but that didn't break their stride! They stayed so composed and really shined through the interview part.. I was just so impressed.. how calm and collected this rising generation is!
But we're done. {whew} It's easier to watch hockey... someone takes the puck away.. or scores.. you go after them and get it back... and I can yell and cheer on the sidelines...

Ah Swirl, you snuck those shots in!

Hugh was so cute. He came running over after hockey to congratulate Tatum. What a class act. The whole day was so fun!

I'm glad I got to share it with you guys.

Looks like a good learning experience for your kids!

I dreaded the one year my son went on to District - I think I'm just going to be content with being a bad mom and not encouraging them to do too well - it's much easier on my psyche!

Aw, good on him! his display board looks great and he just looks so confident.

Good luck with your business plan!
