My parents got to come and see Jemma in the ballet. My niece, Samantha, saw her first ballet. She liked the fabric on Jemma’s skirt, because she kept rubbing it.
Friends that have come to every ballet.
With Princess Aurora.
The white doublet is the last one I made. This is the only picture I got of it.
I was home sewing for the ballet.
I made these doublets for two of the young male dancers.
I sewed the appliques on this tutu.
I remade this jacket from a previous ballet.
I put sleeves on the three doublets on the left. I made them for some other performance.
I didn’t sew all this the week everyone was gone, but I got a lot done.
This is where the dogs hung out while everyone was gone, under my sewing table about four feet in front of my sewing machine.
The first week in June, Bill, Justin, and Jemma went to Wichita KS, to participate in work camp.
Bill and Jemma were on the same team
They painted over the graffitti all over the city.
Justin was assigned to another group, but was also painting over graffitti.
Bill got to work with both of our kids.
One of the last things I did with my class this year was an Iron Chef Challenge. I let them choose what they wanted to cook for a panel of four judges that they decided on.
They had 1 1/2 class period to get their food plated for the judges.
Some of them choose full meals such as sliders and fries, others choose to make bruschetta, soup and sandwich, or a chocolate cream cheese cupcake.
Some of them really enjoyed it and of course others didn’t.
The teachers that judged really enjoyed it. The winners got to choose a food reward. Most of them wanted krispie kreme donuts.
One of the things Will got for graduation was a photo book of the pics from Peter Pan, when he played Captain Hook. My sister made it for him. He really liked it.
Here’s his table from graduation. I didn’t get a picture of the food.
Ms. Robie his first grade teacher came for his party. She is a great teacher!
Will graduated from high school this weekend.
He got to sing in a small group.
Then he got to sing with the senior chorus members.
The Superintendent addressed the graduates for the last time. He is retiring. He shakes every graduates hand for 3 different high schools. It’s about 1600 graduates.
He’s in the right half of the screen after they introduced him.
Now he’s in the left half of the screen shaking hands with the principal.
A week ago was Senior Sunday at church. Will led two songs during service.
All the seniors are given a bible from the elders, and then they prayed over them.
After church the seniors had tables set up that had their memories from high school on them. People came by and visited with the senior and their families.
After that there was a dinner for the seniors and their families.
