Projects and performances

We have been busy, non-stop, for the last couple of months it seems... Science fairs, school plays, sicknesses, swim lessons, a big birthday, and all the other usual things. Oh, and we bought a house, too. Things have been a little crazy.

The 4th graders at C's school have been studying the Lewis and Clark expedition as part of social studies this year, and in April they put on a musical, The Adventures of Lewis & Clark, which was fun. C loved learning about the expedition, and we're planning to visit part of the trail when we drive to Portland for a conference this fall. Here's a very short clip from the opening song of the play:

Later in April, K, along with the Children's Musical Theatre, performed "The Elephant's Child," from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. K did an outstanding job as the sly Crocodile. Here's a short clip featuring Miss K in the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River:

(They've performed the show 4 times, and will do it once more next week.)

This month S had her turn to perform--the kindergarten put on a play about the Three Little Pigs. S was one of the narrators, and she did a great job! I don't have a video clip of this one, but here's a photo of S during the play (wearing a dress and pinafore my Mom made for me when I was in kindergarten):

This week we had choir concerts for both C and K, tomorrow is field day at the elementary school for C and S, next week is C's 2nd science fair, and later this month will be S's ballet recital. Meanwhile, we're packing to get ready to move into our house in June. It will be nice when all of this is over!

I did the The Elephant's Child in first grade and my family still sings about the wide, wide Limpopo. What a great story.

And yay! on the house. What fun.

What adorable, talented grandchildren you have given me!
Thanks for sharing.

Wow, you have been busy. Usually I think C looks like you, but in that video clip, he totally reminds me of B. K is a great actress! I'm impressed! And S wanted to be a narrator -- N told me he was happy to be a dog and not be a speaker. I hope things settle down soon!
