Because it is All About Faith!

Faith has been a busy little girl for the past several weeks.  She has been doing some amazing things and I am very proud of how she has done them.

On February 25, Faith participated in the annual Invention Convention held at MTSU.  This is for 4th through 6th grade.  The 4th graders in the EXTEND class at Faith's school were the ones who participated.  She was on a team of four and the they invented a game called 2012.  She was quite proud of what she did.  Unfortunately her team did not win anything but she is already thinking about next year.  Coles Ferry Elementary took 11 teams and 6 of them won a trophy or a ribbon.

On March 4th, Faith was in a school musical called Timeless Television Tunes.  Two of the teachers at Coles Ferry have organized a production that is open to any 2nd through 4th grader that wants to participate.  Faith did the musical in 2nd grade and this year.  They sang television theme songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Faith specifically sang in the songs from Good Times and WKRP.  They did a couple of movie songs and she danced to the Footloose song.

Last, we celebrated Faith's 10th birthday this past weekend.  She turns 10 on March 10, 2010.  I just can't believe she is growing up so fast.  This year we had a Purple Penguin Party.  She loves to play on a Disney website called Club Penguin.  I am not sure of what it is all about but she has fun playing on it.  Her penguin is purple which is her favorite color.  So I made her a purple penguin cake.  She wanted pizza for her party and we just carried on the "P" theme.  We had pizza, popcorn, pasta salad, and Pepsi.  It was a "p-erffic" party.

Looking for Spring

I am frozen solid.  I have been cold for too long.  It has been a cold cold winter so far.

We got a good snow at the end of January.  It snowed all day on a Friday and we got about 3-4 inches.  School was closed for 4 days.  Faith was sick and missed two additional days.  We got to go sledding at Grandmommy and Granddaddy's house during this snow.   This was the first time that the kids got to experience a real snow and sledding.  Unfortunately for them, they didn't like the climbing the hill part of sledding and they didn't last as long as I would have liked.  Kevin, my dad and I had a great time sledding down the hill.

It was cold all during the month of February.  We had several more snow days although not enough snow to go sledding but it was too cold to go out and enjoy ourselves.  I have spent every night during the month of February curled up under a blanket too cold to move.  We need spring!!!
