elementary school concert

Suzanne, Charlotte Claire, and Margaret showed Camille the doggy, Mr. Champ....she was not impressed. Here is Margaret with Miss Camille....
I had to tell Charlotte Claire there was an airplane to get her to look up...I felt bad that there wasn't really one....

The kids looked so cute dressed for the concert, I had to get a picture. Charlotte Claire wouldn't co-operate....

Evelyn and Suzanne weren't too sure they wanted to go to their chorus concert tonight, but they decided an hour before they had to be there that yes, they wanted to go. So off we went....the older kids went to the youth meeting, and Paul and I took Margaret, Kathryn, Evelyn, Suzanne, Sonja, Jonathan, Charlotte Claire, and Camille.....what fun.
Well, I didn't go shopping today, so I almost stayed home all day, except for the school concert. This afternoon, we cleaned the little girls' about fun...the things that accumulate in that room: beads, markers, crayons, school papers, undies, socks, barbie shoes, barbie clothes, barbies, stuffed animals, dolls, doll clothes, hair ponies, barrettes, pajamas, play clothes, school clothes.....and we clean it all up, and they say it will never get that messy again....oh, and since Jon is in there now, there were matchbox cars all over, too. Now I have a few more loads of laundry to do....
Theoretically there are too many kids with too much stuff in too few rooms....but that is just not true...well, maybe the too much stuff part.
