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

image

A week ago was Senior Sunday at church.  Will led two songs during service.

image

All the seniors are given a bible from the elders, and then they prayed over them.

image

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.

Fittings

image

I don’t take many pictures of myself while I’m working for obvious reasons.

image

As I was fitting tutu’s the other day, Lisa took pictures for her facebook and instagram pages.image

Pictures are on Friday, so I will be done with these two costumes by then.

 

Donuts

image

Today Jemma turns 14.  She loves donuts, so I got these for her birthday.

Long time friends

image

It’s been a long time since we’ve taken pictures of these girls.

image

In the last couple of weeks, someone has thought to take their picture twice.

Noodles

image

My classes made noodles last week.

image

I’ve never made noodles from scratch before, so I made some on Monday night at home before the lab on Thursday.

image

When I made them at home, I cut them by hand, but at school I borrowed  a friend’s pasta cutter.  It’s really pretty easy.  It reminds me of making pie frust.

Costume help

image

Jemma helped me cut out a ballet costume on Saturday.  I was sewing on something else while she was cutting and as soon as she was done, I started sewing what she was working on.  She has also helped me tear out some seams.

Some more soccer.

image

My friend Zina took pictures of Justin at the soccer game last Friday.

image

Justin is the main goalie for the JV 1 team.

image

At least you can always find him in his green jersey.

image

When Bill saw this picture, he wanted to know why a penalty wasn’t called on the other kid!image

More food lab results

image

Last week, Melissa Norwood, who I met last fall at Thanksgiving Day in the City, came and taught my students how to decorate cupcakes.  These were some of the best.

image

Before spring break we made pies.  I hardly eat anything they make, but this group of students brought strawberry rhubarb filling for their pies.  Rhubarb anything is my favorite.  It was so good.
