First Mate Blackheart Steel Tooth

Brittany got straight A’s this quarter. She’s extremely proud of herself. She never thought she could do it. Ted and I knew it was in her, she just had to find the motivation. Now that she’s going to the same school as her best friend, they compete, I think, to see who can get the better grades. She’s still blasting out on the trumpet and doing very well. She’s also been tinkering on the piano, reading Isaac’s piano books and teaching herself how to play. She’s read through the Lord of the Rings trilogy again, and is very much enjoying the Lemony Snicket books. She went to camp the weekend of Jan 21-23 with the Jr. High for a Pirate Retreat. Her pirate name is First Mate Blackheart Steel Tooth. Valerie, her best friend, is Captain Long John Val. I’ll try to attach the story behind the names soon. They returned with “A Pirate’s Life for Me” sweatshirts. (No, Virginia, sorry you cannot have one :))
