So many things are happening around here.
Let me start with Elyse:
Elyse will be turning 16 soon. She just finished her math and Debate class. She is taking a social dance class, learning the tango, cha-cha, and everything. She is taking her 1st college class. She just finished her YW recognition/personal progress award. She loves to bake and decorate cakes.
Julia is playing a new song on the piano almost every week. She just had a wonderful orchestra concert. Last week she made us a great meal all by herself. This is after her assuring us that she burns everything. She has also joined the freshman football team. She went to her first day of conditioning and came home saying that she was stronger than some of the boys on the team.
I'll have to post more later.
