Dance Recital

Violet just finished her dance recital.  She is lukewarm on actually taking dance class but she loves the recitals because she loves the tutu, the make up, and the hair.

Auntie Jenny took these pictures just before the recital.






















Recital time!  She had two performances.  Lucky me got to sit through the whole recital twice.





Violet laughing at me waving to her from the audience at the end.

Violet is done with dance for the summer.  She just started daycamp at the JCC and she is loving it.  She gets to swim every day.  They have foam parties, art, science.  Every week they do an inhouse field trip (a petting zoo came in yesterday) and a off site field trip (they are headed to the zoo today).  She comes home thoroughly exhausted but says she has too much fun.

Whale Watching

I was lucky enough to be invited to go whale watching on a private boat with some former clients.  They run private whale watching tours.  We didn't see any whales but up close and personal with a pod of about 1000 dolphins.

So close to them!

Mother's Day

I had to work on mother's day but I was able to enjoy the PreK mother's day celebration at Violet's school.

First we had to guess which of these pictures was made by our child.  Here is Violet's:






Did I mention my favorite color is burgundy?  It has never been turquoise but I don't think Violet knows what color burgundy or turquoise are.

She painted me an awesome finger painting.




I got a laminated card that explained why she loved me:





Only slightly better than last year's answer "Because you buy me whatever I want."








On Mother's Day Eric and Violet stopped by work with food, flowers, and gifts.  Next year I'll be home for it!
