My play and Papi’s party

November 14, 2016

My theater group put on their show today – I was a parrot with a bit of a rock n roll attitude. I even had a solo song!

After the show we went out to dinner to celebrate Papi’s birthday.

And I You Tubed the songs so I could practice them too.

I wish we had theater again tomorrow. Once a week is not enough!

Puppet show

March 16, 2016

Today we got to perform our puppet shows to our families. There were three groups. We all made our own puppets, created our own sets, wrote the scripts and performed it all ourselves. It was also lots of fun watching the other groups performing their shows. I’ve now officially added artist and actress to the things I want to be when I grow up.

We’ve almost completed our intensive swim course

Tomorrow night is the last night of our intensive swim course.  We're getting good at rolling onto our backs and floating when our feet can't touch the floor.

Tomorrow night is the last night of our intensive swim course. We’re getting good at rolling onto our backs and floating when our feet can’t touch the bottom and we need a rest.  This week we’ve also been diving down to pick up rings off the bottom (in the shallow end).

But our favourite thing to do is fly down the slide, splash into the water and we have to find our way onto the mat.

Then we all kick to propel the mat for a lap around the pool.
