Oh my, it's been since 2011 that I have posted on here and it's now 2013! Well, I will get a post up on how we are doing, but for now I wanted to post the kids artwork so far from the 2012-2013 school year. We are doing water color painting with Robert Frost poetry. Here is some of what we have done!
We spent the last 4 days in ABQ and had such a great time visiting friends, eating great food and doing so many fun things! We were greeted by Balloons in the mornings, had a Frontier Roll, went to our old church, oh, just had a fabulous time. It went by too quickly!!
Heidi had a doll tea party theme for her birthday party this year. She helped me decorate her teapot birthday cake! It was kind of an experiment but we think it turned out really pretty. The girls all made paper fans, played toss the teabag into the teapot, build the tallest sugar cube tower in 2 minutes, and doll musical chairs.
We got Heidi her first American Girl Doll! She loves it. She got a couple of outfits that she and her doll can wear that match - they are SOOOO CUTE! Thanks Karla and Pops! She got another cute AG pajama set and a bed for her dolls.
Aaron got 3rd place for his age group (11-12, even though he's only 10!) Level 6. We are proud of him. There will be a meet in Midland in Feb, then Lubbock, TX in March. State is here in Hobbs, Regional's is in Fort Worth, and if he makes it - National's is in San Antonio TX.
It's been so long since I've posted anything. We had a very nice Christmas and New Year. We stayed in Hobbs for Christmas and enjoyed the time with our family. We've had a warm and very dry winter. It's so awfully dry - just terrible. Our new puppy Greta is growing so much. She is now 4 months old. She is teething and biting and I can't wait until she outgrows that! Heidi also lost a tooth recently and has another loose one. She has a birthday coming up and I can hardly believe she will be 8! She wants to be an artist when she grows up and we got her some art supplies for Christmas. She really enjoys it! I hope it works out for her. Aaron is 10 now! Also hard to believe - but he is growing into a fine young man. He is competing now in Tumbling for Gymnastics. It's been good for him. He also still loves Legos and wants to be a Lego designer. Derreck and I are fine. He works and I am busy homeschooling and chauffeuring. It's all good.
