Just when you think...

It can't get any busier -- it does!
I looked at my calendar today - for the next 2 weeks, I won't be home very much.  It's all end of the year fun stuff like tonight's International Thespian Honor Society induction and dinner for #1 or tomorrow night's Brass Ensemble performances for the top 10% of the graduating class that LLB has to play for, or Saturday's Tag Day fundraiser, or next Monday's first Marching Band rehearsal.  See? It's all fun!
Well, it's not all fun... they both have projects due next week, but they've got them mostly done. We're going to go through them this afternoon to figure out what they've got left to finish since this afternoon is one of the only afternoons they'll be home right after school.
Actually, #1's project is very interesting. It's a personal history. He has questions to answer and questions to ask of family members and friends. He had to ask his grandparents some questions about their lives and the answers were pretty neat!  He had to ask how we felt about different times in our lives -- Mr. did that because he was raised in Montreal and his answers are from a totally different perspective. It was a fun family assignment -- not that we needed homework on top of everything else, mind you.
LLB's project is about King John of England - not very exciting, but... what are you going to do? Not all assignments are fun. At least she learned something. (She'll probably forget it all right after she gives her presentation.)
They both have to bring food in on the day they present their projects -- and yes, they are presenting on the same day in 2 different classes at the same time.  Parents are invited to attend #1's class and I intend to be there!  He has to bring in a favorite family recipe. He has class in the morning - as in 7:30am.  Chili isn't what I had in mind for breakfast. I'm thinking pizelles instead...  LLB is supposed to bring in something they would have eaten during King John's time. I'm thinking pizelles might be good.  I don't know if they ate them, but they should have! And, that's what I'm sending.

that's too funny that you're sending the same thing for both classes. he he

Congrats on the Honor Society award for #1! and I do hope you get all these projects done soon so you can start your busy summer.
