Busy Days!

As the end of the school year rapidly approaches, the amount of scheduled activities seems to increase.  Cambry has been one busy 3rd grader!  Last Sunday she had her spring piano recital.  She played "O Worship the King" and she did very well!  It turns out this was her only recital this year as she had the stomach flu for the Christmas one. This might also be her last recital. We are having a hard time convincing her to continue.  On one hand, I think piano is a very good thing and will help when band starts in a couple of years.  On the other hand, it's simply exhausting to get her to practice each day.  We'll take a break over the summer and then she might feel differently!

On Monday, she went to the Cosmosphere with her class.  Amazingly, we have never taken her there! Chelan had the privilege of going along and I think they all had a good time.  Cambry said her favorite part of the trip (besides the gift shop, of course) was the planetarium.  Thankfully, her teacher, Mr. Wiens, is so great about taking pictures that I don't ever have to worry about missing anything!

Then yesterday (Thursday), the class had their Famous People Day.  This is an annual event and the kids look forward to finally being in 3rd grade for their turn with this project.  Cambry chose to be Laura Ingalls Wilder.  This fit nicely because I have been reading these stories to her before bedtime. This is the kind of project she really enjoys.  There were several aspects:  creating a display board, a PowerPoint, drawing a portrait, writing a report, and then presenting their project to other classes and their parents.  By the time I arrived yesterday, she was pretty much done.  I didn't get any information out of her, which was very concerning to me.  Her teacher assured me, however, that she had talked to groups earlier in the day.  I sure hope so!  I do know that she put a lot of work into this and she had fun learning new things about Laura Ingalls Wilder.  And for that, we are proud of her!

I'm not sure she's paying a whole lot of attention to Amy!

Look at all those great costumes.  There was even a Captain von Goessel this year!

Tonight, it's off to the first ever Goessel Elementary Art Show!
