YOLO!

Good evening, it is Sunday.

The last few weeks through the next few weeks is the main testing window for the kid's schools.  MSP, MBA, RBA, DIBELS, and who knows what other tests acronyms there are.  Is it testing overkill?  Who knows.  With all these test, this would be a great way fill in the bubbles:
YOLO!  Yup, YOLO stands for You Only Live Once and is kind of a slang/sarcastic term for "who cares!  consequences be damned."  Fitting for totally flunking a test that may hold the key to one's future...nice!  I don't think any of our kids will be filling out their bubble sheets like this, but I know there are plenty of kids out there feeling way overwhelmed by testing overkill.

On to musicals!  Elementary musicals that is.  Lillie is dressing as a Jazz musician from the 1950's. Yup, Lillie will be Sarah Vaughan.  While not exactly twins, I think Lillie does right by Jazz musicians from that era:
Bring on the busyness of the end of the school year!  And the sunshine.

See you tomorrow.

Lillie looks like a flapper from the 1920's - she looks beautiful - I'm sure she'll do a great job...........

Bernice, I told Lillie about your flapper comment and she said, "I know, right!" She said in her social studies class she has just learned about flappers.
