Calli has a blog! She's leaving in just a couple weeks to go to Quebec for Guide Dog training. It'll take about 3 1/2 weeks. The wonderful organization of Mira USA, the only one in the US to provide guide dogs to youth ages 11-17,says that Calli passed her assessment and that she qualified for a dog!!!! We are all so excited. So, to keep everyone up to date, she or I will be posting on this blog. Join her for her Journey!

Kids on TV again

We are blessed that the kids take Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lessons from Victor Torres. Here is a short clip from the LOTS of film they shot of the kids and their teacher. I think it was shortened because there were a couple football scandals that night :(

Life is Cheery!

It's been a while. I spend a lot more time on Fb now, less time here, sorry. We've been busy, the kids have been taking their piano and voice lessons, but have also added cheer as of last June, and as of 2 weeks ago, have added Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Both kids are doing well in school, grade wise, and Acer's finally getting his behavior under control too, so it's a good year.

It's been an odd winter here, and I'm on month 5 of a bronchitis battle. I just can't seem to shake it and it has really sapped my energy.

Here's a video of their latest cheer competition. Acer starts in the back, up high, then moves to the right, and after the tumbles is on the left. There's another little boy the same size, so look for glasses to see if it's him. Calli starts on the right, and then is front and center for most of the rest.

Hope you enjoy the video!

Acer and Calli's duet 'Rainbow Connection'

Here is the best bit from the recital. While it was happening I was laughing so much tears were running down my face. Acer was certainly determined to sing into the microphone directly!

Here, Acer drums the longest, and speaks the fewest words, but check out his smile!

This one is my favorite so far, more drumming than before, and who would guess this would be his answer?

Acer loves youtube drumming videos. Recently we've started watching ones called 5 minute Monday; these inspired Acer to make his own videos with questions people send him. Thankfully he feels no need to make a 5 minute video, he just answers the questions and moves on.
A big Thank You to Krystal for being the voice of the videos.
This first series of questions is from Charlotte, Thanks for sending them in!
