To Be Or Not To Be...

... is not K's question anymore... she's Hamlet and G is Queen Gertrude.  Both are thrilled and had such fun with a "Shakespeare-Off" and lots of "Funny Shakespeare" with their class.  To hear Romeo's lines said as a "Valley Girl" or as a Country-and-Western singer was beyond hysterical.

Laughing hysterically after "Valley Girl Romeo"
Highlighting lines

An afternoon etymology class:  this is a giant vinegaroon and they also learned a lot about peacock spiders

Queen of Fractions

Well, if not Queen, at least she's competent... and proud to be moving on to decimals.  Well done, G!

Basketball Season Ends

Great first season for G; K's party was later.  I love basketball... wish the season was longer!  Now onto baseball and track...

Baseball Happy

When I picked her up from baseball, a little early because I had to get to class, she had just been up at bat.  "Good hit!" was the comment I heard from other kids on her team.  She gathered her things and said, "gotta go" and from across the field I heard repeated calls of, "bye, K!"

This was her third day of practice in a row.  On the way back to the car she told me about how happy she was with her team this season:  "everyone seems like really good players and there aren't any jerks on the team."

A few minutes later, sitting down next to me in the car, she looked over happily and said, "I love baseball!" Me?  I love it when she's this happy....
