Shakespeare by Elementary Students?????

Sydnee just finished the second performance of Twelfth Night at our elementary school. The drama teacher has proven again that she deserves a raise. Next week the children will be performing at the Utah Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City. Sydnee has some serious talent!!! One of my greatest joys is watching my children discover things they are passionate about; Sydnee is passionate about acting and violin. Hannah is passionate about music (especially singing, of course). Seth is 13 - are teenagers passionate about anything? Well, he is probably most passionate about school work. He is a perfectionist when it comes to grades (although he did miss a couple of assignments this year- for the FIRST time in his life- really, that makes me happy- I want him to enjoy school more and worry less). Now that makes me wonder, WHAT am I passionate about?????

OK, OK, I Give IN!!!!

I LOVE to look at blogs!! I spend way too much time on the computer reading blogs of people I don't even know. Of course, most of them leave me depressed - "I should do that with my kids" I think to myself. I think this will be a good blog for normal people - not supermoms!!!- a place where people can stop by and visit and then leave feeling happy. They'll smile and say, "Hey, her kids are AMAZING and she's no super woman. I can do that!" So yep, ladies (and gentlemen) you don't have to be super woman to have great kids (heck, your house doesn't even have to be clean and you don't even have to make beautiful homemade cards or yummy cupcakes - all 3 things I desperately want); you just gotta love those cute kiddos-because they don't stay little for long (weeps heavily as she thinks of her growing kids!).
