just another week in Newark...
This was a somewhat uneventful week, but just a quick couple of thoughts...
"My" choir sang for the first time today for ward conference! They were quite amazing! I had silly nightmares about the choir all last night (nobody showing up, the chapel being unrecognizable...) but nothing weird happened and my singers were all exquisite! They make it fun to be the choir director!
This was our homeschool check-in week (it happens every other week) where we see Mrs. B. and turn in all the homework we've done and Dawna shares her favorite assignments. Were were pleasantly surprised when we got there to see that Dawna had been chosen as Decoto's Student of the Month!--complete with certificate and a gift card to McDonalds! All the kids come along with me when we go and Larry and Xochitl build with the amazing blocks they have there. One of the High School students there asked Larry what he was building (in the picture below). Larry said, "A BART station." The teenager said, "WOW! That is Magical!" Larry got a kick out of that!
And yes, these pictures are from Christmas... long time ago... but I just found them and had to share how much my mom is the Grandma Pajama Queen at Christmastime! It makes me wish I was a grandkid... Warm matchy pajamas... sigh...
