Do you see the left arm all bent? That is what happens when you are nervous and have had the surgery she has had. It's interesting to watch because it is a DEAD GIVEAWAY that she is worried about something, or concentrating really hard on something else. When she sang, the arm pulled up, when she paused she would look down at it and immediately straighten it out.
During Frosty these two boys came out and walked around the audience hamming it up. The boy in blue was tremendously funny, and obviously cut out for the stage - his face was so expressive.
A fun night to watch Blondie shine.

T-Rex and I had a blast. We have a couple of videos I can't post here because some of my students are in them, and I'm calling them by name, but this trip is always magical for me. Students always have such bravado and think they'll get in and swim with these gentle giants, but being in the water is such a different, sometimes unnerving experience. To watch these kids, in two days figure out how to snorkel, and respect the wildlife around them is tremendous to watch. I'll never grow tired of it, even when it sounds insane to swim in 30 degree weather, and I definitely enjoy going on the trip with one of my girls. T-Rex learned a lot, and it has definitely had the effect on her that I was hoping for. She has always been fascinated by learning about animals, but swimming with them, in their habitat has opened her eyes to all of the controversies, and has started her thinking. LOVE THIS KID!
I'll post more when I get the next batch of pics back from the underwater camera.

My 1800's reproduction fabric quilt (truly a pain in the butt to make, and I've never quilted it - so I'm going to tackle it this year just for myself.)
