Last week Jane:
performed in the halftime show of the elementary school staff basketball fundraiser. She was completely and totally awesome. I would include a video, except you probably won’t watch it . (Grandparents, ask when you come to visit!) She remembered all the moves, did them with style and jumped so high. She’s never taken dance, but she should!
We were there, literally, from 5:20 until 8:20 and we left an hour early. (There were actually performances and auctions EVERY 8 minutes and it was excruciatingly long.) Especially when the kid on the left wants to get out of the bleachers every 73 seconds and the kid on the right was wapping all of our neighbors in the face with the pom-pom things.
Emma, competed in the 5th grade math team competition. The Math Team required 2-4 hours of after school practices and 4 hours of extra homework. It kind of wasn’t fun, but we were so proud of her for sticking with it. Look how smart it made her:
We apparently like to take pictures of food around here:
Jane brought home a pie cookbook from the school library and begged me to make one with her. Here we are with her Lemon Cream pie. (It was really yummy):
Emma won a coloring contest at Papa Murphy*s and got the family a free pizza last Friday night. (Thanks for helping me stay in budget, Emma!)
And I went to an Appetizer Lunch at a friends house and made things Chicken Wings and thought they looked so perfect that I made Ryan take a picture of them. SO YUMMY.
And Faith is in Screaming When You Don’t Get What You Want Rehab (thanks, Meridith, for the 45 minute Love and Logic for Little People session). She’s actually been more enjoyable this week after a looong Monday morning. In the meantime, we thought we’d show you why we keep her around:
(We start ‘em young on the job chart at the Romney house!)
Between the food, the dancing and the Rehabilitated 16 Month Old…maybe our house is a fun place to be?!
