great stories everyone!

We just found out ds10 is invited to the professional ballet program at the academy he attends (not sure he'll go for it, but to get the recognition is really great). Also, he is picked for a great couple of roles in the Nutcracker this year, so he is REALLY excited!!

Dd5 just finished up K and literally lead her class in singing a bunch of great songs, and had a couple of lines to say at the end. I wasn't sure if anyone else noticed her belting out the songs with greater surety that the other kids, figured it was just my own bias, but then the teacher pulled me aside to tell me how great dd's memory for the songs has been, and how during practice she was practically the only one singing most of the time...LOl, so now she sees dd a bit more clearly.
