What we are up to this week....
We have a lot of club events this week, and our bi-weekly art class. Actually we have 3 clubs and art class tomorrow. A field trip to the Art Museum on Tuesday morning. Joey and Lydia start back to 4H this week. Actually Lydia is still a Cloverbud for another two years....shhhhhh....don't tell her. She's in denial that she can't show a project yet. So she is collecting her art projects to enter in the fair anyway. Of course we have the regular dance/gymnastics classes. Our Special Olympics Homecoming is this Friday, and Lydia is going to a Scrapbooking Party that a friend of ours is hosting this upcoming weekend.
