Hazel joined my “Acting Up” class this past January and February.  I asked her to “help” because our class only had a few enrolled.  The class ended up being great for her.  All of the important reasons I give parents for exposing their kids to the arts early, (help little ones to develop confidence and trust, gain language understanding, learn to work as a team and of course, gain comfort with speaking publicly, just to name a FEW of the potentially life-long benefits), held true for Hazel.

I think we can all remember Hazel’s school concert back in December (she cried or scowled for most of it)  However, our Goldilocks and the Three Bears performance was quite different.  She played Goldilocks in front of an audience of strangers and was confident and even had nice projection (and of course great stage presence, I am not biased at all).

***Tears*****(and a stage mom is born)………………….. I KID!

And then this cute little man turned four today!

Callum continually surpises us with his humor and personality.  This guy is funny, rambunctious, kind-hearted, sweet, silly and loving.  He is such a blessing each and every day.

show10We are taking a few of Callum’s closest posse over the mountain to the Science museum this weekend.  I am sure we will have lots more pictures to share after that.  Let the birthday festivities continue!

Thanks for all of the calls and texts!
