Ballet performance

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.

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.

Iron Chef Challenge

IMG_20150507_091817

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.

Cake Decorating

Sharon Ackerman spent an afternoon with Jemma’s girl scout troop teaching them how to decorate a cake.

IMG_20150502_152053

The girls made a cake and frosting before the class started.  So they started decorating as soon as they could.

This is the finished product.

Party time

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.

Jemma was choosen as student of the month at Academy of Ballet for the month of May.

Jemma was selected because of her kind heart, for the way she enthusiastically supports ever student at ABTA, and for her good posture.  Good job Jemma!

Senior Night

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.
