OK, so the picture stinks.. but you try to take a good picture while they are dancing!! Hannah is the one in the blue in the middle.. I think that is tap.. not sure.. I know what kind of Mom am I? Well, just so you all know, I wasn't all that thrilled with the dance class this year, and I DO NOT like the costume! Most of the girls don't like it either. It doesn't really go with ANYTHING... no sparkle of any kind. Sort of sad for them. They did work hard. New teacher that I wasn't all that impressed with. We are trying to decide if we will return there or not. She is at another studio too, and loves it there. So will have to keep you posted. I am hoping that the recital goes well tonight.. Keep those fingers crossed!

I finished this book the other day! The ending was pretty predictable, but a fun read over all.
It was about a lawyer who makes a HUGE mistake and walks out. She ends up in the middle of nowhere, and is mistaken for a housekeeper. Mind you that she knows NOTHING about cooking or cleaning. She meets the gardener.. and well, like I said, the rest is predictable.
A fun read if nothing else.
I am not sure why they were standing at first, but then they have each group play a song. It was pretty impressive for the clarinets! They had to memorize the selection that they played. At the VERY end... This was after "Let's Go Band!" Mr Ballew made them hold up their instruments for about 2 minutes.. It was rather funny!

1st, they made this wonderful scrap book! This is MORE THAN I HAVE EVER DONE with scrap booking! Hannah did the writing! I have the picture of the 1st page, and the last page! Needless to say.. I cried my eyes out!! It was very touching! The last page says..."but most of all, you showed me that I want to be like you!" and it is a picture of us when we were in San Diego dressed alike!
THEN... in case I wasn't spoiled enough... I got Valerie Berinelli's book! I have wanted to read this since it came out! I can't wait to start this one. I am sure that I know at least one person in Iowa who will want this when I am done!!
NOW.. these 2 little gems are from Hannah! She made them in class on Friday.. OK, I knew about these since I went in and helped all 24 of the kids make these for the Mom's! I didn't look at Hannah's until this morning when I unwrapped them! The treat-a-lope had Hershey Kisses in it! They put the gift card in it.. and the note pad holder turned out great!

And then there is Grets.. she has to listen to all of this going on because usually they are both playing at the same time.. She goes to her favorite spot and just sits there.. Poor thing! Mostly it is Hannah that she has to listen to, since her kennel is right by where Hannah practices!!
