November

Here's some of what's happening:

  • We've finally got recognizable fall weather.  We had the air conditioning (slightly) until around Halloween.
  • Baby Girl is really cashing in on potty prizes of late (cheap grocery store kid DVDs have been very motivating), but I'd say she's no more than about 65% potty trained at this point.  I'm afraid the next step is trying cotton underpants again.  *shudder* Ideally, we'll be putting this all behind us by Christmas or New Years.
  • C is at the very end of her From Lute to Uke book--that's the good news.  The bad news is that the songs at the end of the book are really hard, so it's slow going.  Once she finishes that book, we've talked about having her learn the Concerning Hobbits and the LOTR Rohan theme, which are very pretty on ukulele.  (No link for Concerning Hobbits, as I feel like the youtubers are slightly flubbing it.)
  • C is also planning on playing the "Bear Dance" from the From Lute to Uke book for an in-school school "coffee house", which will be very nice. 
  • I'm not sure what book she will work from next, although my vote would be for 20 Spanish Baroque Pieces by Gaspar Sanz Arranged for Uke.  I'm a big fan of the style.  Here's an example.
  • D is prepping for a bouldering competition.
  • Thanksgiving is coming!
