Tonight, Mara performed as the element Earth in The Masque of Beauty and The Beast at The Academy of Performing Arts.
Her tribe was there to support her hard work and we loved every minute of it!
Afterwards it was a meet and greet with the actors...
Mother Nature and Earth
Earth and Smoke
Earth and Ice
Earth and Water
Earth and Air
Earth and Rock
Earth and Fire
So happy :) She is totally in her element when she is on stage!

She has a goal of selling 100 boxes so that she and her troop can go to Bouncin off The Walls, Build A Bear, camping at the cabin and make a donation to One World Cafe.
Help Willow reach her goal!
Way to go home schoolers in New Hampshire! I have to say that we are very lucky in Utah to have such awesome homeschooling laws. That amendment to the law they are trying to pass in NH is ridiculous. Homeschooling has proven time and again to be a far superior choice over public education and passing a law that basically recreates public school in the home is crazy! That is what the majority of home educators are trying to get away from. My children are free to pursue their passions in life all day, every day. They are not bogged down with useless busy work. It is a beautiful life......

Willow had her first horseback riding lesson today. She rode Crystal, a 25yr old mare. So sweet! Willow did amazing and now wants to go everyday! She learned to fall off ;), stop, start, turn, lead, walk and gallop. She rode bareback for the first lesson and next week she gets to saddle up :)
Mara got money for a guitar for Christmas. She found an awesome one in her price range and it sounds incredible! I had no idea how expensive musical instruments were since I have zero musical talent ;) $8000 for a guitar...really?
David found one too...but I put my foot down. Sorry Dear :)

Josh got a new gaming desk top for Christmas that he had to build himself :) He and David had a great time putting it together. It is amazing! Huge framerates in Dalaran for you WOW'ers! :)
They were nice this year...waited til 7 am to get us up...although the giggling outside our door for the hour before was like hyenas :)
David with his usual Christmas goofy voice making them wait to come downstairs...one day they are going to overtake us! :)
