Spring recital time. Lily and Clara did such a wonderful job performing their pieces. I’m so proud of them for practicing and being courageous, it’s scary to play in front of a lot of people! I think all their hard work paid off.

Train Up A Child – Assessment Testing

April brought Standardized Testing to our school. A first for Lily being in 3rd grade now. I’m sure most of us have strong opinions when it comes to standardized tests, their benefits and their drawbacks. I see both. I’ve never liked the pressure that seems to come with these tests. The excitement induced by teachers around these tests seems to only stress some kids out. Lily is one of these kids. She was so nervous about taking these exams.

School Winter Program

Tuesday was the Winter Program “It’s a Snow Show” at school. I have to say I’m very impressed with the performance, how organized it is and how well the children at the school do. I’m so excited that at this public school they offer not only band but orchestra to kids once they enter 4th and 5th grade. They also have a ‘chorus’ group where the kids learn harmony. I’m hoping our babies can enjoy all that’s offered here.

This program is a pretty huge deal to the¬†school community. I couldn’t believe last year how many parents and family show up for this during the work day. They pack out the place with two performances. I was smarter this year and stayed at the school after I dropped the kids off. The line starts forming an hour before and wraps around the school. I was there plenty early and though I didn’t get right up front I think we did well on the 3rd row.
