So proud…

Okay, usually I don’t do the “proud mom” thing and subject you all to my talking about our kids, but this holiday I’m making an exception.

Remember how I mentioned that we were awash with Nutcracker rehearsals?  North Carolina Dance Theatre has a fantastic production downtown with the symphony – just beautiful.  Well, a great local photographer named Christopher Record recently took pictures.  Pop over to his site and see.  The second and third pictures on this page are my baby!  Could that be?  It was just yesterday that she looked like this…

I wish we could freeze time, but the older we get, the faster it flies by.

We’re so proud.  And she can sew too!

And we’re also proud of this guy, who plays her brother on stage and in real life.  And in his off hours he is my International Director of Shipping, which is a very important position.

Not getting too much sewing done around here, but trying to enjoy the moment.
Happy Holidays!  (And sewing too!)

    Ya know, we hear so often about how homeschooling will "stunt" their social development, and they'll not be able to co-exist (much less thrive) in the "real" world….my 23 yr old daughter is amazing audiences with her community theater performances, and we homeschooled, too! Isn't it wonderful? I'm so proud of all of them! God is good!
