Going back in time some, above is an example of the fun hairstyles Wendy used to allow me to do before school. She has since become "plainer" in her preferences and will barely allow me to brush it!
Owlet M'toe, on the other hand, didn't realize her mama had affixed this here bow atop her noggin! But that obliviousness lasted just long enough for me to snap this pic. And then the bow was on the floor.
Wendy's beautiful haircut. But..she then wanted "more" bangs "over her eye," and the result was not a look her daddy or I liked. So since then, we've gotten her bangs trimmed above her beautiful brows, which now show. But she doesn't like it. At least she'll have better under-water vision for swim lessons! And we can grow it back out in the Fall.
(Now today is the 10th--I'm just adding a bit to this blog post because I was rushed yesterday). In other news, Wendy did well on the Staar test, first time to have to take it, and actually is advanced in both reading and math areas! I know I (may) have done well on the language part but no way could I ever have gotten "advanced" in math. Evah! She also made straight As every report card. Pretty cool. I hope homeschooling goes well and that I do a good job of challenging her appropriately!
Speaking of homeschooling for the first time this Fall, there are other changes in action right now. James and I met with a man to get started on the path to becoming Hermann Sons agents! We need additional income, and it's something I could do from home.
And I'm co-chair for our church VBS and James is leading construction (mountains galore!), so he and I have been busy-busy working on tons. Emily is leading VBS and she is just amazing and I am honored to be her helper! Please pray it goes well!
Another something new--Just signed Wendy up to do Troupe theater in Bryan this Summer! She has a script, a CD and is hot-working on it. Try-outs may fall on the 17th or so and she's interested in trying out for the part of Gertrude. We'll see. Her cousin, Eva Rose, just NAILED it as Captain Hook in their theater production of Peter Pan! And of course Cousin Wesley is a very talented actor in theater in Houston! Mimi was a star actress in theater as a child. So I guess her talent has truly been passed down!
Lincoln is still astonishing us with his math abilities, all of which he does in his head on the spot. Adds, subtracts, multiplies and totally gets money! He's getting his tonsils out tomorrow! I'm waiting for the call to know when to take him in. Mimi's coming in today.
Kids have attended parties out the ying-yang lately, not all of which I've photographed, boo, and are having play dates with friends over here or at pools to fill up the hot Summer days. They play Beanie Boos together when other kids aren't over, and Linc plays with Alice all the time.
Alice is still receiving physical therapy and yesterday did pretty well outside in her play kitchen, cruising around for her therapist!
Okay, I guess that's all for now. Next news will be a new blog post!
