Sarah and Emily are playing in the orchestra and instrumental (band) at school, taking guitar lessons, and playing soccer. And, perhaps because of our excellent parenting, Emily and Sarah both made the honor roll again this quarter.
Both girls will be participating in a music competition at Hershey Park in June with the Jamestown Elementary School group(s). Excitement has been building the past few months, maybe because of the competition, the visit to amusement park, or the 2-hour ride on a luxurious charter bus. Tim and I will be in the audience, but we politely declined the opportunity to chaperone the day-long trip.
I'm coaching the girls' soccer team again this spring, which is a rewarding experience. Mostly.
We had a great trip to Arizona for Spring Break. On our trip west, we saw an "Open Range" sign and cattle crossing the road (right in front of us!); a former WWII fighter pilot/author; and a man crossing the street holding a baseball bat in one hand and a rifle in the other. We took lots of pictures.
