I have been designing/sewing up a storm the last few weeks getting ready for the girls' holiday ballet production. It's been so fun and a lot of work. This is for The Portland Ballet's piece Gift Box, by Anne Mueller.
Some early sketches. We are going with white tights on the men. I am making the headpieces now for the ladies, which I love to do. I will show them soon.
Unrelated to all this ballet and costume work we have been watching some great videos on you tube:
Seeker Daily: Topical world issues. Short and easy to follow with a lot to talk about after.
The Kids React to Food series on the Bon Appétit channel: Okay, these are so great. I think we have watched them about 5 times each.
Short science based videos on Life Noggin.
And thank you so much for all your teen reading suggestions. I got quite a few at the library. And I finally read Eleanor and Park. Haunting. And Sad, but hopeful, too. I can't stop thinking about it. I had no idea what is was about until I read it. I love it when I don't know, I feel like I come to books with a better state of mind that way.
