Heigh Ho, This is Kermit the Frog

I love it when Kermit says these words just before going out on Sesame Street to report on the news! Here is our latest news: Caleb started piano lessons 6 months ago and this is his first recital. He played Hoedown and Feres Jacques as a duet with another student. He didn't make any mistakes!
This is a photo of Camille and her friend Jenny. They played their duet together and did well. It was Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie, Yellow Polka dot Bikini.
Some of you already know that Jacob has been taking a machine shop class in high school. He is a natural at it and enjoys it a lot. This is his latest work of art, it is a meat tenderizer.

We also have new paint on some walls. My main floor bathroom is a beautiful shade of pale lavender and my laundry room is sunny yellow. Nathan has been painting like crazy and my house is looking great! He had an interview over the phone the other day, but wasn't qualified for the position in Salt Lake. He did exchange e-mail addresses with the interviewer so I can teach his wife to coupon shop! :) Only Nathan. He can always make a friend in 2 minutes time. He also has the most exciting and nerve-wracking news: he has been accepted to graduate school and will start pursuing a masters degree in real estate development in the fall. We are going to hold each others hands through this. He really will do well at this, I am sure. In the meantime, he has been doing a kitchen remodel and looking for work. So, Kermit signing off, that is the news, folks!

That is a lot of news for one little frog! LOVE the meat he taking orders for those? I could use one.
Hooray for music in your home and going back to school! We have some education plans of our own-I promise to keep you in our prayers.
I wish Nathan could come over and finish painting my little abode-its one of the things keeping us out.
Could you teach me how to coupon shop? After all this time, I'm still clueless.

I agree with Nan....that is alot of news for one little frog!! I am glad Nathan got accepted! Yay!! You may not only hold hands, but you may put in quite a few late nights and end up doing some extra typing and maybe even say a naughty word here or there.....I know.....I held Ry's hand when he went back to school!:) I too am putting in an order for a meat tenderizer!:) And am really wishing to have been there for the duet of poka-dot bikini! Love to all!!
