In the end, Michael did not win his bid for the 6th grade student council, however, it was a close race and we are really proud of him for trying.
Right now he is playing volleyball and has begun to learn to play the flute. Kathryn has started attending the Little Flowers Girls' Club (Jane is the leader). Both kids are still active in Scouts and Irish Dancing.
We are going to be taking them to compete in a couple feisanna over the next month and updates on their successes will be recorded here. A feis (pronounced fesh) is a competition for Irish Dance. Feisanna is plural. Wish them luck at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. They don't check their emails all the time, so let me know if you send them something and I'll tell them to check their emails.
That's it for now.
