Weekly Wrap Up - The Week of Play Practice

This week we had three practices for the King and I with most of them revolving around the 15 minute ballet. This is a huge undertaking but will be incredibly beautiful when the time arrives to perform it. We are also meeting some new people from our community and enjoying each other's company during rehearsals. Here is a version of the ballet that is almost exactly how we will perform it:

Grace finally got back to sketching this week. Sometimes she will take a break from it for a couple of weeks and not really produce much and then go back to it with a burst of energy.
This is a sketch of a vocalist Grace is currently enjoying.
We continue plugging along trying to get finished with Algebra 1. I think I will throw a huge celebration party when we are actually done. Math will be so much less stressful for 10th grade due to us making the decision to take a break from higher math and do personal finance for the year. Science is almost finished as well. We are also finishing up some reviews (Biochemistry, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Diana Warings History Through Music Series)  and blog posts will be coming up in the next couple of weeks for each product.

I don't want you guys to think that we are not doing any fun summertime stuff because we are. On Wednesday we took the day off and drove out to do some shopping as Grace had birthday money that was burning a hole in her pocket. She bought a really cute summer dress at Plato's Closet and a couple of anime books. She fell in love with a new to her series called My Little Monster. She can't wait to get her allowance this weekend to buy the next two editions.


We are still volunteering at the animal shelter every Friday morning. All the local shelters have just exploded with the amount of animals that need homes. This time of the year is very hard on the shelters and many animals are put to sleep because of space issues if it is not a no kill facility. Please spay and neuter your pets and if you are in the market for a new pet please adopt and don't buy.

I am currently working on updating three rooms in my house that are in dire need of it. I have kind of ignored the house for the past five years and it is showing. In August I will have three families bringing their daughters to me three days a week and the house needs to be ready for that. So currently I am working on the main bathroom, my bedroom, and the school room. Bright colors for all. I will be sure to share pictures of everything once I am done.

Here are some upcoming things I will be posting about:
  • A huge giveaway coming up later today
  • Grace will be working at an art camp Monday - Thursday of next week
  • Swimming Monday afternoon at a friend's house
  • We ordered more costumes for Grace's business and will be taking photos of them to share
  • Room makeovers
Hope everyone is having a great summer vacation!
