Oh, yes. This is going to be one big DUMP. This week has been the first chance we’ve been able to catch our breath and as we speak (type) the girls are up at Girl Scout camp all week, we are prepping to have the house (exterior) painted, and I’m furiously trying to organize three different trips. We leave for San Diego Nationals volleyball tournament on Thursday; Daddy leaves from San Diego for China on Saturday; The girls and I are back for Monday and then leave again on Tuesday for Michigan and Ken’s wedding.
Um…yes. This is our “down” week.
I have posted a few end-of-year excitements to Vimeo and will post more but I have to wait til my video upload limit resets on Thursday.
For now, as promised…The Voris girls in their Variety Show glory. Addie was in two (Smooth Criminal and Happy Girls) and Emma and the Dynamite Girls reconvened and added a friend to become the Hit Girls.
The next day we had the church musical and we had some serious technical difficulties with all of the cameras. I’m still trying to find some good footage of Em’s solo. It was amazing. She did a great job as Joseph and brought tears to my eyes.
Then two days after the musical, Em had another little solo part as Sacagewa in the 4th grade play. I have that whole play digitized, but I’ll try to just cut her little part out so that I don’t take up ALL my video allotment for next week, too.
Then last weekend the girls had their piano recital. I uploaded Addie’s – she and Em did a duet and then Miss Suzanne accompanied her on her second piece.
Emma doesn’t want me to post hers because she messed up on Amazing Grace and was really upset. But her first piece was amazing, so I’m thinking that I’ll at least post that one. Maybe I’ll video her doing Amazing Grace at home because she can do it flawlessly when she isn’t flustered. And it is such a pretty piece. Again…as soon as I get some more video room!
And another one, that I don’t think I ever posted but just put up for the choir…the girls singing on Mother’s Day. You better believe I cried through this one, even after listening to it in the car for a bazillion times!
Be back with more as soon as I catch another 2 minute break! Hope your summer has started out with a bang, too!
