A Group Of Stahrs

Our Family Life…All Together

Catch Up

Before the big 9th celebration festivities begin this weekend, I figured I should catch up on what’s been going on around here.  Let’s begin with Jamie’s big third grade music program.  Jamie was so excited about it.  She was a narrator which meant she had to speak a part into the microphone in front of the entire audience.  Those of you who know Jamie understand what a big deal this is for her.  And she was awesome, if I do say so myself.

It really was a fabulous program.

IMG_0014Jamie shined like the little Stahr she is and I beamed with pride.  I love that she tried out for that narrator part and did well.  She amazes me every day.

Next up, was Jacob’s big art project.  The art teacher at school was able to submit 3 works of art per grade to the District 49 art show.  Jacob’s was one of them.  And so his artwork went on display downtown at the Penrose library.  We took a little trip there this weekend to see it displayed with all the others.  He was a little proud of his art…


So “The Elephant”, as he titled it, was displayed in the library on the green wall, of all places.  That impressed the boy since it is his favorite color!  The security guard came over after I snapped this picture and asked if I was allowed to use my camera.  Apparently when you take pictures of your kid with their artwork you have to get permission first.  Who knew?  I promised to not take anymore as we walked around to look at the rest of the art.

We went to our first SkySox baseball game of the season.  Not really to watch the game but to hear a really great choir sing the National Anthem…


Jamie’s choir, Ursa Minor, sang their little hearts out and did a fantastic job.  It was such a nice day that we stayed for a little of the game and then walked the 10 minutes home.

Tonight was STEAM night at school.  STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Music.  The school combined the science fair displays with the Art/Music night.  So we went to see Jamie’s science fair project on display in the library…


The fourth and fifth graders had their projects on display in the gym where art work from each student was on display as well.  Jacob picked his out right away…


And Jamie found hers too…


I love seeing all the art and listening to music played by students while we walked around.  It’s a pretty cool thing the school does each year.

Not to leave Mazie out, she had her first honor society meeting last week.  She volunteered to help set up at the school carnival that was held last weekend.  She has to volunteer a total of 15 hours to get her membership card.  Do you remember the model house she worked on over Spring break?  She brought it home today with a big fat 100% on it.  She was pretty pleased with that for her grade!

With all that out of the way, bring on the 9th birthday sleepover…God help us!
