Enough about me. The kids ended their second quarter of school last week and I am pleased to announce both Leia and Elijah made straight A's and Jacob got all A's and B's! Jacob was selected to be on his schools SeaPerch team, it is like a STEM club, he loves it and it is great for him. He was also selected as Student of the Month for December in his class and his science fair project was selected as one of the top 3 in his class. Jacob also has been doing a baseball clinic this winter to work on his skills and is showing great improvement. Next week he will have try outs for the Spring season. Leia went away the last weekend of January to North Carolina for a youth group retreat, she loved it and can not wait to do it again. She also is in the process of applying for a summer enrichment program called Breakthrough at Norfolk Academy. It seems like an amazing opportunity and I really hope she gets in. She also just started French, but misses her Spanish teacher, so she will be joining the Spanish Club... luckily this one meets once a week during lunch at school, otherwise I don't know how she would make it fit in to her schedule. Elijah is busy with scouts and has just started reading the Harry Potter Series. He also recently went to the ENT in search of a diagnosis for all his congestion. He is on tons of meds right now and will go back at the end of March to reevaluate. All three of the kids are also busy with the annual Purimshpele with our Temple, this year it is Lost in Space themed. It has a little Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Spaceballs, and maybe some other stuff. It should be great, as always! If you want to come out and see it it will be performed on the 20th of March at Ohef Sholom Temple. As you can see, the kids are busy as always.
Well, I think that wraps up what has been going on in the Morrissey house the last 6 weeks or so. Stay tuned to see how we are living our lives to the fullest!
