12-1-18 Her new Skating Club’s Holiday Performance in the afternoon with the Production Team.
12-2-18 Her new Jackson ice skates are FINALLY in. I have a feeling it’s just the beginning of buying new skates as he gets more advanced.
12-3-18 Tried on her new dress for her skating show next week at her old skating club. I have been preparing 235 pieces of artwork for the PTA Art Reflections competition since I took on the position of the Art Reflections Chair for the entire school district since my kid asked me to take it over. I may home school next year just to get out of doing this! All the art needs to be labeled, logged in, organized by category, division, etc and hung by Friday for judging.
12-5-18 Woke her up at 6am to ice skate before school….then, OMG! She walks through the door after school and starts whining and yelling because she has an A/R test tomorrow that she forgot about and I’m seriously trying to ignore her because I have way too much other stuff going attempting to get the Art Reflections art pieces ready to be judged by Friday for the entire school district. Trying to remain calm and walk her through it. Decided to skip ballet tonight so she could get ready to test tomorrow.
12-6-18 Skating after school with Coach Meegan, then stayed for Group Power class.
12-7-18 Skating with Coach Meegan after school. I spent the morning hanging the Visual Arts and Photography entries.
12-8-19 Daddy took her skating in the evening.
12-9-18 Ballet recital. So glad her new studio is much more relaxed than last year’s! She missed dress rehearsal last week due to her A/R test and they were happy to let her participate. Her old studio would not have allowed her to. She was front and center and several of the other dancers watched her to see what to do.
12-10-18 Daddy picked her up from school since I had to be present for the Art Reflections judging in the afternoon.
12-11-18 Skating with Coach Arlene after school.
12-12-18 She’s up at 6am to go the rink…as I’m driving there, I’m thinking to myself, “Don’t Think Just Do! ” Once we get there, she tells me I have bags under my eyes.
12-13-18 I went to a Love & Logic seminar today, then took her to her ice skating lesson with Coach Meegan. Proceeded to Cookies & Crafts night at her school. Her friend, Max was there and her Kindergarten mentee, Parker. Aunt Jenny sent her a new Ice Skating ornament.
12-14-18 Took photos for our Xmas cards since she was all dressed up. Winter Solstice performance with her prior skate club. She’s performing with Alice and Julia. The show was about 3/4 of the way through and the power went out in the rink due to a wind storm. They had to cancel the remainder of the show. She was quite upset because she really wanted to skate.
12-15-18 Played with the neighbors outside all afternoon. She requested a sleepover at our house with Ivory and Riley, I declined. Too busy and too tired. Daddy took her to the library to check out some non-fiction books. She has to have a total of 10 ready by Friday to meet her A/R goal.
12-16-18 Birthday party at for the neighbors, Jojo and Kai.
12-17-18 Told her to her off ice skating after school; you’d thought I had asked her to climb a mountain!
12-18-18 In the car to ice skating, she said that the kids in the highly capable program are weird. I asked what she meant, she said they asked her how babies were made today in class. I haven’t had that discussion with her yet, but apparently all the kids in her highly capable class are highly educated and know. She said the kids are different than her other friends; they talk about different things, and that the HC kids said they are considered nerds sometimes. Continued on to her ice skating lesson with Coach Arlene and I’m thinking why do the HC parents have to have this conversation already?!? I’ve been trying to avoid it
12-19-18 She had her annual eye doctor appointment after school. Decided to order contacts to try them out. Then, we went shopping for Christmas presents for her friends. She had to give Joi a bunch of hugs when we got home…she loves the cat!
12-20-18 Ice skating with Coach Meegan after school. She can do an Axel. Meegan wasn’t doing anything…just holding the rope.
12-21-18 Make up Winter Solstice performance for the skaters that didn’t get to perform last Friday due to the power outage.

12-23-18 Went to Enhance Christmas downtown. There was an ice skating rink and a Christmas light maze.

Went to brunch at Aunt Cindy’s in the morning and played with the cousins. Went out for Christmas dinner in the afternoon.

12-27-18 Daddy took her to her afternoon ice skating lesson with Coach Meegan so I could teach an extra yoga class in the afternoon.
