Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! Today is my girls’ big dance recital, which is always a lot of fun. They work hard ALL YEAR for this one show so it is a pretty big deal to see all those weeks and months of practice finally come together and pay off. This year they tried Acro, along with Ballet & Jazz, and it was a lot of fun to see them learn how to do cartwheels, walkovers, and handstands. I’m sure our neighbors got a kick of watching them practice in the front yard too! This dance recital is our last big commitment of the year and then we are really looking forward to a summer of FREEDOM! Am I the only one who is ready to be free of obligations and extra-curricular activities for a few months?
But moving on to the important stuff….this week’s picks!
