Last week was a most eventful week. Not only were we preparing for Thing 2's b-day and baptism, but she also had a fun school assignment to prepare for. It was a living wax museum and the kids were to study someone's biography and then come to school as that person and give a little speech as though they were that person.
Seriously, what a great assignment!!!
Anyhow, Thing 2 was:
And if you aren't sure who she is, here is her sign:
We worked hard on her speech all week, and she had it down. But I think she might get a little bit of stage fright, because this is what happened when I pushed the button for her speech:
(she gets that from me!!!)
Anyhow, she worked hard and did a great job and I am so proud of her!!!
(And for the record, all of the kids did a great job - it was really fun to go through them all and learn more about some great historical figures ... George Washington totally rocked the house!!!)
And now, I need to pay my respects to one of my favorite Little House faces ...
I just found out he died, and I wish to thank him for being part of such a great show. We grew up with these shows and enjoyed them to no end. And my dad would always remind us that Mr. Olsen was a big-time football player who started out at Utah State University when my dad was there. And he played a few intramural games with him from time to time! Very cool!
May he rest in peace.
(And for your peace, DO NOT google images with this "Merlin Olsen Little House" in your search field - just warning ya. Thanks Mary-Kate and Ashley for getting your ta-tas out there for us to see!!! Blech!)
