I think we finally got the stomach virus out of this house. I don't know how B was spared, but he was and he's very thankful, lol.
J is still doing lots of drawing every day. She can draw a cartoon character perfectly and has been experimenting on ways to make human faces and bodies. We read the chapter book together on Friday. Then she was on the computer this weekend on websites like brainpop, bonus, neopets, disney, quizyourfriends, and verbnow. She also spent some time updating her blog and website, emailing and IM'ing her friends, and creating different things with icons and photos. She had dance all weekend - 2 hrs Friday, 4 hours Saturday, 4 hours Sunday. They're mainly going over all their numbers in the competition order. Saturday, I think they ran them a bit too hard. One of the technique teachers had them dance with leg weights on after they had already went through their numbers for 3 hours. The kids all came out looking green and sick. After a little rest at home, J was fine (and the rest of the kids were, too), but that was totally uncalled for. I have never been fond of that particular teacher.
The Saturday studio fundraiser was a huge success. We have raised thousands of dollars already this season for Nationals. Now we have this coming weekend's competition to think about. All of J's costumes are complete (except for a couple of stones here and there) and we're so ready. Her solo goes out for the first time and her group numbers are the best I've seen so far. She's so excited.
