Taking Over From Mom

Tuesday the youngest two were nursing pretty good colds, so I let them stay home from school...but not too sick to make a trip to Lowe's.  I was drilling pilot holes for our #10 screws, but Dean thought he could do a better job.  So after I finished one leg he insisted on finishing the other 3.  I was relegated to holding the table leg still for him. Anne was in charge of holding the screws.

School Spelling Bee

The 3rd through 6th graders compete in the school spelling bee - Laurel was one of the last 4 students left when she went out on "regents".  She said, "r-e" and then said "j" but turned it into a "g" - dipthong style, so they had to call it as incorrect.  She was quite upset - she really wanted to place at least 3rd so she could get a trophy.  Oh boy.

Disney's Mulan Jr

The elementary school uses the junior high script because they think the kids can handle it. Laurel loved it - although after 4 evening performances, the parents were quite happy for it to end.  We took a day off as a family when everything was done and spent some time in SLC at museums. Good R&R.
