BUSY!

I took a bunch of pictures of all the different things my kids were doing around the house, but only Cheesie's pics look decent enough to post. Big Al and her friend were making faces while studying for her Spanish exam, T-Rex was working on her science fair board (but the light was awful), and Blondie was on the computer working on a project (with something smeared across her face..... so .... you know). 


So, while ALL of my kids are busy this week, Cheesie gets the focus.  She wrote a story for extra credit which had to include different types of clouds (cirrus, cumulus, blah, blah, blah).  She wrote it and then was stuck on the illustrations.  So, she grabbed the lego people from my collection (see below: the fairy, the German pretzel dude with wings from an extra fairy, and Gandalf) and was trying to illustrate her story with them. I reminded her she didn't need to make a castle (she was REALLY not wanting to do that) because we had a set somewhere, and she got right to it.

So, above they are flying through a storm, and I have no idea what is going on below. She shot all of the pictures herself and printed them off for her story.

Tonight she also asked me to watch her at tumbling practice, where she is REALLY coming along with her skills. Pretty soon I'll have two daughters who can do a back handspring! (I don't know why the sound isn't working).
