Eleven and Seven

My kids are eleven and seven.

And actually, my son is almost twelve.  This year he marched in the Fourth of July parade with his bagpipe band.  He has been taking lessons for almost two years, and is just about ready to get on the pipes.  You learn to play, and practice, on a practice chanter.  Anyway, here he is marching in the parade holding the banner.


The man on the far left of the picture is Ully, his teacher.  He is patient and encouraging, and after spending so much time with him, like another grandpa.


My daughter is seven.  She has developed a passion for gymnastics.  She's always jumping and flipping and bending in crazy ways.  Here's a video.


We are still homeschooling.  They are in sixth and second grades.  It still works really well for us, and we love the flexibility.

It's Sunday today, so we will spend it reading, writing, playing, and working on projects around the house.

I cannot believe how much they've grown! I'm so glad to be getting peeks at your life again.
