Here's a clip of a song we sang for the showcase. It's called "Famine Song" sung by the group VIDA. This was about a week or two after we started working on it.
Speaking of FCPS....there are SO MANY differences between Frederick County and Montgomery County. Here are a couple of lessons I've learned along the way:
#1: Festival does not exist. FCPS calls it "ADJUDICATION"....and they're the only county that does.... (weird)
#2: It is NOT the PONY....it is "Inner-County Courier Mail" WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE SO FANCY?!?!
My students decided that I (Momma Berry) could be described by various berries. Each berry represents a different mood. Mood#1: Black Berry--this is "back to my roots" (hence, my ghetto side). Today, we bought the kids breakfast since it was the day after the concert and I was reciting some Snoop Dogg song and one of my students said, "You're being a black berry!" :-) Mood#2: blueberry--this is my sullen mood (although I don't think I'm ever sullen). Mood #3: Cranberry--this is my sassy mood. I'm sassy most of the time. Mood#4: Strawberry--this is my "momma-like" mood. I'm probably like this most of the time because of my maternal instinct. :-) Mood#4: Dingle-berry--this is for when I'm in a bad mood (I don't think I have been....)

I can't tell you how much Tim enjoys his Young Rembrandt class. This is his latest project: A Spider. :-)
Finally, I've been looking at pictures of us and pictures of our boys. Who do the boys look like?
