It is almost Thanksgiving! We are so wound up in life that many times I don't get over here to update very often. Since October, Kole has started violin lessons, Kaci will be playing sax with the 6th grade band for the Christmas tour, even though she is a 5th grader. Kali is working on music to compete at Federation, and so is Kaci. Kole is learning his violin parts and how to control the sound and bow. Scholastic Bowl starts tomorrow for Kali as does Pep Band and Jazz Band... so more stuff yet again. It was a nice break. lol
We have been trying to decide how this year will go with the Christmas tree and two dogs that have no clue what one is. lol I think putting up the tree and keeping after the dogs to stay away from it will help. But I dread putting the decorations on with a pup. Reiko was always good about it. Or did I forget.... hmmm I will have to think about that one.
This will be our first Christmas in 3 years that we have not had a foreign exchange student to share it with. We loved sharing the moments of our craziness with Christmas. It usually starts with Kali waking the others to come out and see if Santa has been here at around 2 am, then they all camp out in front of the tree until morning.... Then they come and wake us up way too early, usually around 6 or before! LOL It is going to be VERY interesting this year!
This year for Thanksgiving we are staying home and enjoying a meal here. Boyd has to work that day so it will be interesting when we decide to eat. Early before he goes in to work, or during his hour dinner time later in the evening... That is yet to be decided.
Enjoy the pictures taken of the kids practicing their instruments and some of our four legged friends.
