Today is the day that our 6th grade students have been working toward since we started league back in September, the 6th grade showcase. A total of seven schools will visit Louisa Middle School to compete in Written Composition, Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, Arts & Humanities and Quick Recall. We have 18 students participating, the largest number of students in the competition, and they have proven their mettle in battle for the last two months. We wish them the best and the same to the other schools in the competition. God bless them all.
As I write these blogs the night before, I have just left my daughter’s Christmas Concert at Kentucky Christian University. The evening was wonderful as always. It is fabulous to watch talented students not only perform well but glorify their Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, when they do so. Allison is a junior and she will be graduating in a little more than a year with a degree in Music Business. She’s a sharp kid and a top notch human. Hire her.
How about some excuses?
The Boogie Woogie Bugle Girl of Company C, Bette Midler was born on this day in 1945. Bette has had a long and luminous career as a singer and actress. In fact, the Divine Miss M has made several movies for Disney. Bette hosted a segment of Fantasia 2000; she played one of the witches in Hocus Pocus and was the voice of Georgette in Oliver & Company. To celebrate her birthday, let’s fall back to one of our perennial favorites, Fantasmic!, at Disney’s Hollywood Studio.
Today is “Eat A Red Apple Day.” “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” unless the apple comes from a certain evil queen when an apple a day means sleeping for years and years (or maybe even death). I miss Snow White’s Scary Adventure but you can still pass by the location and remember the classic and look forward to the Seven Dwarf’s Mine Ride (soon to come in the Fantasyland expansion).
Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
