I decided to let my kids take the IOWA tests this year -- just to see how they are faring compared to their peers. I wanted to make sure I didn't drop the ball on any particular area of their schooling.
Hannah took her tests two weeks ago. Today, the older three took their's. They will take them from 8:30-11:30am three days this week.
Here is a video of how I got them each a private area to test:
I continue to be incredibly burdened and worried about the future of girls and their athletic careers because of the inclusion of trans athletes into their sports. I, honestly, am dumbfounded that I am having to have this debate. It just doesn't even make sense. However, this article really said everything I am feeling about this. Changing testosterone issues temporarily does NOT change the testosterone that has been raging through a man's body for the first decades of their life. It includes a statement from one of the greatest athletes ever: Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner who shares how dangerous this will be for girls and their athletics. I pray that our culture stops trying to be so inclusive that we exclude the girls who have worked so hard to be where they are.
I'm very excited that I got to write an article for the newspaper in regards to the upcoming Beauty and the Beast production by Central Ballet Theater. To be fair, I wrote this piece in about 20 minutes. Literally. LoriAnn called me in a panic due to some miscommunication. She needed it. Fast. So I pumped this out. Fast. LoriAnn helped with the introduction but the story that follows is my perspective on being involved with ballet. Here is a link to the piece.
