Homework - blah!

< start 9 year old daughter's voice >
I HATE HOMEWORK! Why does it even matter if I do my homework. My life is so horrible because I have to do my homework. Woe is me! How can it possibly make any difference in anything if I do it or not. *sob*
< end drama >

So there you have it. The above was a short summary of the events yesterday evening. She's only 9. I thought I had another 3 years or so until this silliness starts. I guess I'll have to bump up my schedule, eh? :)

The Nutcracker

Sara performed in The Nutcracker during the month of December. It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work! She had the opportunity to perform for one of our local television stations, and I finally found a link to the video online. You'll first catch a glimpse of her at about the 1:40 mark (she's on the right), glimpses of her for the next minute, and then when you reach the 2:40 mark there will be a couple of close-ups!

The actual production was MUCH better than this video clip. But hey, you have to perform where they tell you to perform! There simply just wasn't enough room, the floor was slippery, and it was tile - so the grout made for a very uneven dance surface! Oh... and she was up at 5:00 AM to get ready for this performance. Yikes!
