I have to admit, I have little to complain about with my two daughters. Their one flaw is every kids flaw, and that is their messy rooms. Sure my oldest has a salty mouth at times, but she gets alot from all around. Patience is a virtue, too bad the schools don't have it. I realize they must be strict there, but every one I talk too, and in different school systems has a negative thing to say about public schools. So I don't feel bad. So why are my kids awesome. It took some time, but they are actually starting to help out in the house. They actually like doing some of the house work. Now, I am not naive. I know there is something behind it...like allowance, and being able to get candy with the money they earned. What's wrong with that if they brush their teeth? And finally I am getting Becca to take a bath! I've never seen a girl not wanting to take a bath, but tv had its dark hold on her. They are great girls. Once in a while, I get a whine from them, but for the past couple of weeks their dad has been home, and that does help. I have them doing dishes, cleaning their rooms, taking out the trash and the dog, and cleaning their rooms, cleaning the living room as well. Hey, when mom works, everyone must help out, and Abby is even learning how to do laundry, awesome kids! I can't complain!
Until next time.

I'm sad this musical is over! Why? Because I still have all the songs going through my head. Abby and Becky have been actresses for a long time now! Abby since she was about 6 or 7. Becky since she was about 4. Laurie Carmine always does an excellent job directing these kids in whatever play she chooses. It doesn't ever look like it will all come together but she gets them there, and boy do the kids deliver. An awesome cast in Annie get your gun, and I have some pics here. We are not sure of the fate of our musicals, but here's to hoping the girls and directors will be able to carry on for a long time. The girls have camp next in the fall, so stay tuned for that. Laurie Carmine and Barb Wallace did an excellent job with Annie get your Gun. Not enough thanks and appreciation for all their work!!! If you see them running around without a play to direct, tell them Carole Harris said thanks!
Besides the drama camp Abby has decided she wants to join the youth ministry choir, and try the joliet glee club. Becky wants to do some kind of gymnastics, and perhaps learn to play the guitar. I wouldn't mind freshing my skills on the guitar either. Of course, we have parties to plan and things to do...not sure where our money tree has been lately...LOL....
Until next time.
