Following the dance festival, we went to the gym for Author's Night. Throughout the year the kids write stories and draw pictures in a their own book. The experience is to teach them to write with the reward of having their book published with their illustrations. They did a great job. It was fun to see the stories (and handwriting) at the beginning of the year, with so much improvment as the year went on. Then at author night, they had an open microphone, and teacher chairs (referred to as author chair) and the children get to sit and the families are their audience as they share their stories. Fun and a great self-esteem booster. However, last year their stories were mostly about mom and I was their hero, sad to say I have to share that title with dad now. Dan will be so excited when he gets home to read the story about Dalton's hero, the kids can't wait to show dad.
Thanks to all the teachers and staff at Northlake that made Author's Night and the Dance Festival possilbe. My kids loved having the spot light tonight!

May 1st was Georgette's Birthday. She turned 7 and she had a Hannah Montana Movie. After school she had some friends come over and we had pizza and opened presents. Then it was off to the HANNAH MONTANA MOVIE. The girls had fun they sat by themselves a row in front of me and boy they thought they were big. Aftewards grandma and grandpa Morgan came over for strawberry shortcake. Then on Saturday the Anderson clan came by as you can see from the pictures grandma Anderson wowed us with another special cake. She had an exciting birthday and mom is happy that she is done with birthdays until January 2010 LOL!
