Silver should be Carmen's new favourite colour:
(Pose #1 in front of her science fair backboard, and:)
Carmen was awarded second place in the Health Sciences category of her school science fair tonight, and she is moving on to Regionals next week. I had the fun experience of judging science fair today (I didn't judge the Health Sciences category) which was interesting. I learned a lot of stuff I'd never known about batteries, airsoft rifles, and the potential benefits of doing homework with the TV on. Ha!
Carmen's experiment tested if students brushed their teeth longer with toothpaste or without. (Without.)
Silver #2: Carmen's basketball team took second in Divisionals!
Um, not silver related, but moving on: Carmen and Chloe had Choralfest on the weekend. The adjudicators were beside themselves impressed with the Westside Children's Choir. In this photo the adjudicator called Carmen up to demonstrate 'molar-izing' her sound. This girl has some good genetics for a wide palate from her dad - is it funny to anyone that Ken has contributed to an element of vocal talent?
Westside Children's Choir is a non-audition choir that rehearses for 1.5 hours per week (senior choir) (and 1 hour per week for junior choir).
I know I've blogged about choir before, but it is the best value for musical education, and such a quality experience. I'm so grateful my girls are a part of it, and also grateful to my friend who introduced us to it.
