Precious Time

Circus Couture was a huge success and such a cool event! It's a night of performance, art, and fashion, and proceeds go to the St. Baldrick's Foundation and the Children's Specialty Center of Nevada. I was thrilled to be the winning bidder on a piece of art called, "Precious Time" by Don Micheal, Jr., which you can read about here. It's a joyful piece and will soon find a home in our kitchen.

The girls received their first report card of the year, and - surprise! - we've got TWO smartypants in the house! Also, Ivy has been working on an enrichment device that she designed and built for the African Grey Parrot at our local zoo, and Georgia took the PSAT this morning. She'll take it for real next year, and then the SAT will be right around the corner! Both girls will be visiting colleges later this month and into next - Ivy to UT and Georgia to two or three East Texas and Louisiana colleges, including (we hope) Tulane. Last year, they switched it up for the sophomores and took them to Oklahoma instead, and Georgia was thrilled that they went back to the usual trip for this year. Sorry, Sooners. : )

The first swim meet of the season is this week, and our girl is now the breaststroke specialist for the mighty Ann Richards swim team! She's got four events to swim, so it'll be a busy day, but she is really ready to hit the water. She has come so far in the last year, and we're very excited to see her compete again. Pics and a report from the deck to come!
