Ten on Tuesday

1. Hadley is in ballet. She loves it sometimes. They had a class viewing day in December and it was fun seeing all that she has learned so far.

2. I have been working on Hadley's room since October. It was supposed to be her birthday present. Sam took a sneak peek picture for you. I'll blog about the room once it's all done.

3. A while ago John got a little mini octopus from Safeway to take home and try with the kids. They thought it was cool and everyone tried a little of it. I did not. It was nasty looking. Here's Elijah with one of the tentacles.

4. We have a dog. It's a good thing the kids like him.

5. I need to start exercising. I'd like to do it in the morning, but so far, that seems very unlikely. I did exercise one morning with a 10 minute youtube workout I found on pinterest and was sore for 2 days. Yikes.

6. I've been teaching Hadley piano for the past couple weeks and she has been doing well. She plays the "heart and soul" duet about a million times a day and is learning some easy version Primary songs too.

7. I got called as the Primary Music Leader a few weeks ago. It's a lot of fun and so far Nellie has been fine with John for the last two hours of church.

8. I quit Show Choir. I was one of the directors for the past year and a half, but it was just too much this semester. I went to the first practice in January and after wrangling the troops there and back, I decided that surely there was someone else who could do my job that didn't have 5 little kids. I decided to step down and wait until the kids are older. I was surprised how emotional I was about it and even cried after my last director's meeting. It has been fun and I really enjoyed teaching the Tenors. I feel like this is what I should do though, so all is well and life is feeling a lot simpler lately.

9. I'm loving the weather this week. I'm ready for summer!

10. Nellie is asleep. Time for a shower.
