The last portion of last year seemed to be one step forward and two steps back! December was filled with some interesting events, and some of them just ended upside down.
Our "Class Dismissed" screening never happened due to a mix up-looking into rescheduling that. Arden's birthday was on a weekend that was cold and wet, which is unusual for here, and so resulted in all our plans being rearranged. On the whole he took it well- as he was very much looking forward to his first Christmas pageant that day. Instead we had a late night movie run with "Back to the Future part 2 and 3".
Willow and Gabriel performed in "Clowns vs Ninjas" with their circus school, and that was fabulous! All the people involved pulled the show together into a really amusing and entertaining performance. Willow had hurt her foot the night before, and still managed some of her parts, which I imagine was a great relief to all involved.
We also had our home ed review and received our exemption for another 12months, and Willow auditioned for WAAPA, and was told that she had missed out this time around. She's feeling philosophical about the whole thing, and is looking at it as a learning opportunity for applying this year.
