End of (School) Year

G-man and Kiwi survived their end of year activities at their schools. It was hard for them to keep getting their work done, especially as the weather was just beautiful and outside was way more fun than inside.

As part of G-man's GATE (gifted and talented education) classes, he learned the Recorder. They did a belt system, and he got to Gold on the last day, one short of Rainbow. He did an excellent job learning his instrument. For their final performance of the year, they did a concert for their class. They stood up and did a song for each belt, and you sat down if you didn't get that belt. He got all the way to the penultimate song.

As part of Kiwi's extra-curricular activities, she did a Drama Club. They had a year end performance of an adaptation of Charlotte's Web. Basically, they would all sit in the front, and stand up for the scene they were involved in. The acoustics were not so great, so I can't say that I heard what was going on. But, they had cute little outfits and hats.
And finally, Kiwi got herself an award at the awards ceremony. She got Best Overall for her class. Not surprising, since she got to the halfway mark in the school year at the top of here class in grades. Surprising, since she tanked here homework at the end and got less than stellar marks for the last quarter. I can tell she is just like me. :)
