Each year the second grade classes at our school host “Poetry and Punch” in their classroom. This gives the kids a chance to recite the poetry they’ve written during their poetry unit. Oh and serve green punch. Mmmm.


Spring Piano Recital

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.


The Things They Say

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016


Sometimes I hear my babies beginning to think about deeper truths and I love it when they ask questions.

Clara: If Jesus was born as a baby then how did He make the world?
Clara: Why didn’t Jesus get married?

I answer as best I can then hand these over to Pastor Daddy.

But some questions neither one of us can answer…

Esther: Are Jewish people real?
Mama: Yeeesss.
Esther: Do they live in the dessert or underground?
Mama: :-D !


School Winter Program

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016


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.
