Well, school is out for all for of the Smitheys that attend or work at school. The last couple of weeks have been busy, fun, and stressful, not necessarily in that order.
Joel's finals are over, and I think he's relieved.
Jenny got a fever the last couple of days before school got out, so she missed two days of school, including Friday, when Mr. Iden announced the parts for this year's school musical. They are doing "Oz" this year, and Jenny got the part of--Dorothy! She was excited, until she went to highlight her lines in the script and realized that she is on stage for almost the entire play... She'll be great, but it will be a lot of work.
I've been painting and trying to post things on Etsy. I also have sold two paintings, a custom jewelry order (two pendants and a pair of earrings featuring a woman's twin grandsons) and a pair of necklaces! Very exciting for me, and all traceable to the shows that I participated in this fall--
Not done with Christmas shopping, but it will get done. We passed the anniversary of my dad's death on December 13th, which was hard but manageable.
I'm looking forward to down time with my family--
