Following in Her Mothers Footsteps

Brooklynn tried out for the school play this week and got a part. The play is Doo Wop Wed Riding Hood (its a fairy tale spoof) and she got the part of Medium Purple Hood, Little Red Riding Hood's smart sister. The play is in March sometime, but I can't remember the date right now. I'll post it when I find out so you can all put it on your calenders. Congratulations Brookie, you truly are your mothers daughter.

The date for the play is March 12th. Put it on your calender. It will be soooo fun! We started rehearsals today, and we are so excited!

What We're Reading

The 39 Clues Series

This is great reading for the whole family. Braden has finished the first book and is working on the second, I have read both, and Brooklynn (who got the first book for Christmas--Thank you Aunt Rainie!) has just started. So far everyone is really enjoying them. You can visit the website too (; it's way more than just a book series, its a whole interactive world. Lots of fun. We recommend it! I know the picture is really small, so click on it for a larger view. The books are pretty available at the library, not very long waiting lists, but hurry, because I have the feeling they will quickly become the next big thing. Right now the first two books in the series are available with the 3rd book coming out March 3rd. It is going to be a series of 10 books all scheduled to be out by Sept 2010.
