Catching up!

December arrived with a bang, and it hasn't slowed down yet.  Between our jobs, Christmas events, and both kids playing basketball, we are never home.  I know it will slow down soon though.  Here is what has been happening with the Townsends.

1.  Allie and Corbin had their piano recital.  They both did a great job, and we are so proud of them. Allie seems to like it more than Corbin, but Corbin had expressed interest in playing the drums in middle school next year.  I found out that band teachers like to have their drummers have piano lessons.  So we are making him stick with it a little bit longer. 

2.  At piano recital, one of my former students was there.  He is a freshman this year and not your typical piano player.  Ha!  He did amazing.  He played Silent Night and Just a closer walk with thee in a jazzy, Southern Gospel way.  You could not help tapping your foot along with him.  I was so proud of him.  He had a rough 8th grade year, so it was so good to see him doing something positive. 

3.    I have come to the conclusion that my Allie is going to be an athlete and not a dancer.  I know this is silly, but I am not an athlete at all.  But she is going to be tall and she is fast, so I know this is right for her.  I will cheer her on no matter what she does.  Love that girl!

4.  Corbin had a rough patch at school and at home.  I call it the "preteen" disorder.  He didn't want to do his homework or his chores, arguing, not cooperating, etc.  You know how that goes.  But after a good talking to by his dad, he has turned a corner.  Taking the Xbox away might have helped that, as well. 

5.  Tomorrow is Eric and my 12 year anniversary.  Wow!  Where has the time gone?  Both of us just wanted to order a pizza tonight and watch movies on the couch.  Crazy, I know.  Years ago, I would have pitched a fit because we were not doing anything grand.  Oh, how time changes you.  Plus, I am worn out.  I just want to stay in my sweats all day.  This is the only Saturday we will have off for 2 months.

Hopefully, I can add the recital pictures soon.  Life is crazy busy right now, but one day I know I will look back and smile about all the good memories.
