Both girls have had a good start to the year. Little Girl tried out for the special choir ... a solo audition ... and made it ... doesn't take after her parents obviously. Actually a solo singing audition is just about my worst nightmare ... well maybe not worst ... there was that one where The Boy fell off a cliff. She also came home the first day with a permission slip from the NGV, they wanted to use a piece of her artwork on their website.
The Big Girl made the school swimming team for the first time this year. She was in the 50m freestyle, 50m breaststroke and 4X50m freestyle relay. The district competition was yesterday and so I spent the morning down at the pool cheering her on. She swam well, I'm really proud of the progress she's made this year.
