Spring Chorus Concert



Serenity joined the school chorus here in Palmyra. Both of the girls were in chorus in Utah, but here they only allow fourth and fifth graders to join. This week they had their final spring concert ever at Palmyra Elementary. Next year all the third, fourth, and fifth grades from Palmyra and Macedon(the little town just west of us) will go to school together in what WAS Macedon Elementary and will now be called Macedon Intermediate School. All the kindergartens, first, and second grades with be here and called, Palmyra Primary School.

I captured some of the concert on my camera as video. I couldn't zoom in any further so sorry it is kinda hard to see Serenity. I tried to keep her in the center of the screen, but admittedly hard to pick her out. The audio quality isn't wonderful either, but it isn't from a nice camcorder.

I am pleased with the little young lady she is becoming and how at least during performances she isn't fidgety like a lot of kids are. We enjoyed it despite the heat and we hope you will too.

Spring School Pictures

Just a quick post to share the girls new spring school pictures. I really love them this year other than the fact that both my babies look way too grown up.

Zoo Field Trip

Cadence and I had so much fun today on her class's field trip to the Seneca Park Zoo. We were rather worried about how the day would turn out since it was supposed to be raining most of the day. Well, that is weather for you, ever changing. We dressed in our layers and had rain jackets prepared because the plan was to go, rain or shine. Hooray for shine. It ended up being a very nice clear day. We were so warm we had to shed some of our layers and we may have a tiny hint of pink on our cheeks. It wasn't the most amazing zoo I have been to, but all in all very fun. Some parts were better than other zoos I have been.
