Can I just say how much I hate the learning curve for electronics. Just when you figure something out they go and change it. I finally sit down to catch up the blog and I have to figure out how to do a post. Frustrating!!! Any way, Here's some of the happenings in February.
Lexi participated in Solo/Ensemble for the school district. The students learn a piece either by themselves or with a small group and then are judged on their performance. Lexi did a solo and got a 1 on it. The smaller the number the better. The judges comments were that Lexi was very good on her timing and managed tricky finger work.
The first fruits of our garden. I have tried to be a successful gardener and haven't had much luck. I decided to try something different and plant some fall vegetables. The cauliflower was the only thing that worked out but you can see it was beautiful, as well as delicious. I just wish the plant produced more that one head/plant. I will remember that next year and put in more plants. We loved eating the fresh cauliflower.
this is Lexi before
This is the after. While she is smiling there is the beginning of pain in that look. Her excitement was somewhat dimished by the reality that there was pain involved in the beauty.
Lexi played basketball for her jr. high team. She is #21 there on the left. The girls did a pretty good job and learned a lot.
At the end of the month the girls had a special program for the Young Women to welcome all the girls that would be turning 12 in 2012 and to introduce the yearly theme. Paige was involved in helping organize the night. The program was very nice and the girls sang a beautiful song. Paige and Lexi with their reminders to "Arise and Shine Forth"
