Art:
Art will be outsourced this year.   Both E-R and I-E are quite talented, and I’ve taken them as far as I can.   They will be picking a specialty and working with an artist later on this year.

Drama: 
I-E and E-R tried out and got parts in The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever at a local playhouse.   Rehearsals are filling up their afternoons.   After this show, we will be taking a break from acting so they can concentrate on art, but I’m sure another show will be in their future later in the year.

Liberty! The Series
George Washington’s World
Abraham Lincoln’s World

Additional we are reading for one hour a day.   I have a pile of books on the shelf that are available for the girls to choose from each week.
