Getting into the groove

Last night's Art Fair was a lot of fun. Halle did quite well for her first time in the limelight. She did pause for a moment after the first couple of lines of her poem, but instead of getting flustered, she just giggled a moment, remembered her place, and continued on. She got a chuckle from the audience at that giggle and then a good burst of applause at the end. One of the high school girls later told me that Halle was just "so cute I wanted to hug her." Noah also did very well with his poem. I was worried he would mumble, but he didn't... and his last line was rewarded with the hoped-for laugh from the audience. There were several good performances last night; some violin duets, piano performances, a martial arts demonstration, and one 9th-grade boy did a couple of vocals that were quite good. He did a DC Talk song, What If I Stumble, and also Mary, Did You Know? There were also 2 small groups of girls who did some ASL performances, one to O Come All Ye Faithful and the other to Breath of Heaven. Music interpreted in ASL is beautiful to watch.

Plans for today are to do some chores around the house, then take the kids out shopping for their annual Christmas ornament. Once we get back from that, we'll put up the tree and decorate the house. Hopefully I'll have time to make some Christmas snacks as well.
