I have 4 girls, 11-16. The 16 year old has a part-time jobas a dietary aide in a nursing home. The rest, of course, don't work yet. all of them take music lessons, because they really love it. The 3 oldest do community theater, and the 11 year old is auditioning this year for a part in "Oliver!". Music and arts are really what they do for the sheet joy of it. The 14 and 16 year olds are at the point where they need to be thinking about college apps. Neither has an athletic bone in her body, which is a problem - the college admissions people like to see a competitive sport somewhere on the resume. We're hoping to get around that by having them participate in wilderness outdoor leadership school. They also participate in a lot of volunteer work at the Humane Society - we're all animal lovers - and the nursing home where the oldest works. So, for the two oldest, the list is: Wilderness group, nursing home, humane society, piano, choral ensemble, chamber orchestra, theater, Girl Scouts. For the two younger, it's ballet, piano, theater, humane society, Scouts, and occasional Sierra Club outings.
