This weekend, Oatie is going to be in his very first Ice Skating show! He is so excited.
He is going out with his skating group! He is the only CP skater that our club has!
I'm his skating aid and I was a bit daunted a few weeks back about the prospect of face planting infront of my entire TOWN! but... if I face plant, I face plant, If JJ is brave enough to go out then I am!
We had a dress rehearsal yesterday and that was fun...:)

The kids are on a spring break, and it doesn't feel much like a break for the following reasons the kids are in a club ice show that was SO SO SO micromanaged that it's like amazing that it's even going ahead... me who is a super organised person, this makes me feel way out of my comfort zone...
Just the other day, I was meant to be handed costumes ready for sewing and instead get strips of pre cut fabric... and expected to magic out 40 outfits from it... and then we had the 15 fake fur animals that I was allergic too... that she, as if they were alive and moulting...
arghghghgh it's under two weeks to go and over half the club is at a competition this weekend and the person I was making it with got annoyed as she was the one who was doing the designing and cutting... so I enlisted another mum who has one child in junior high so she has a little more time then I do to help and is a sewing whizz and the other mum has taken offence.
On a different note, the kids have drawn Oatie's bedroom wall colour scheme plan for his new room.
Here it is...

Well YES, it's true, the school principle sent 15 or so emails and had no luck... so anyway I found out that she didn't try THAT hard as she sent them to some "bod" who doesn't even have a name.
So today was the day, that Oatie's siblings were due to go skiing and they didn't want to go without him.
Would you also believe that it was a teaching day, and the school who arranged this excluding activity (even though Oatie is an acomplished skiier) didnt' make any provision for him to come to school and learn... they even sent his AID on the ski trip! like how WRONG is that????

So the little one was not very well and within 48 hours Oatie went down with it too... and then I caught a cold and my husband got a chest infection... by some weird chance the older two escaped it all! We do tend to segregate the family out for meal times like some eat in the dining room and others who are well eat in the breakfast room and that seems to stop everyone being sick.
We then found out that now in our province that anyone at any stage of chickenpox can just wonder about at school... anywhere...
So you might not hear from me for a bit.... I feel so rough and I'm sure the kids fell rougher.. :((
