From the camera…

Alan and the kids are watching Pirates of the Caribbean… part eleven or twelve.  These movies go on forever!  I finished with my lesson plans for the upcoming week, and felt inspired to write  a blog post.  Unfortunately nothing terrible blog-worthy is going on these days.  I went to my camera for inspiration. Most of the pictures are from school. :/

I found a few though! :)

Lex took a 3D printing class last semester and made some pretty cool things, including his Minecraft avatar! (he’s going to paint the head yellow since it’s supposed to yellow and they had no yellow filament)

Eve just whipped up this lovely painting, while having a snack, listening to her audio book, and rambling to me. She’s multi-talented!

I found a fun idea on the internet (what did people do before the internet?!?) and made it happen at school.

The kids LOVE it! I have 22 teachers who gave me their two five books and now have their faces on display. :)

This dog is weird. He likes to eat with his head IN the bowl.

He also loves in toy.

I got new glasses. Eve got a new wig. We tried to put them both on and make a fun picture. It didn’t work. I like the glasses, but the wig is not my style!


I thought it best to end the pictures with the handsome men, not the crazy women.  :)

On other topics, Lex is rocking his robotics team and they have their first competition at the end of February.  I’m sure you’ll see lots of pictures from that!  He’s also continuing with drum lessons and karate, and currently working on light design for a high school play.  He had pink eye last weekend (ugh) and says he feels feverish now. We just had two snow days in a row (Thursday and Friday), making for a 4-day weekend, and I’m hoping a fever doesn’t extend his weekend even longer!

Eve has been drawing up a storm and listening to all the audio books she can. She is an amazing artist! She’s considering doing the middle school play this year, but she’s not sure. She came home last week and said she signed up for an audition, but then we learned auditions are Monday afternoon, the same day she has a dentist appointment. :/ I’ll see if she’s up for auditioning after that, but I’m not holding my breath.

I just booked a trip to Quebec City to celebrate Eve’s 13th birthday! I kept asking what she wanted and she kept saying “Canada!” I can’t get her all of Canada, but I can take her there for the weekend. She opted to bring her bestie along as well. I’m excited!

I’m scheduled for surgery (again!) this Friday, Feb 14th. I’m not excited about that! I’ve done all the tests, had scans and x-rays, and blood work and breath tests and all that jazz, yet no one can figure out why this keeps happening.  My next step is an impedance study (scheduled for April vacation) and then maybe a trip to Boston for a 3rd opinion this summer.  Yuck.

Ok, my battery is about to die!  Love y’all!!  Bye. :)
