Dance Class

Monday is dance day for Charlotte. The funny thing is I look forward to dance class as much as she does. Not because I love watching her dance (which actually I do - there is nothing cuter than a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds doing ballet and tap) but because of the women I get the privilege to talk to while waiting for Charlotte.

When we signed up for the class in the fall I was thrilled to find out that there were two girls in the class that go to our church and another little girl that goes to the church's preschool. I didn't know any of the moms well at that point. Now we have some of the funniest, frankest conversations and I leave there feeling lighter and well, giddy. I usually chuckle for the rest of the day about something that was said. Today has been no different and while I would love to share some of our conversations I can't - well I can tell you that one lady swears that the Morning Star Breakfast patties are really good and we should all try them - but not the links, they aren't good. I love these ladies and truly feel blessed that God has placed them in my life. I really do think I look forward to dance class even more than Charlotte and that is saying a lot!

Aquasaur update- I know you are all dying to know what is happening. We hatched something. Well actually about 10 or so somethings. Now only time will tell what they are, but so far so good.

I wish for each of you at least one person in your life that makes you laugh the way these ladies make me.

Aunt Sherri loves, loves, loves this picture! How cute! I am feeling a little sad for Rehm and his Propel quest. I hope that he has been able to buy some this week. I sincerely hope that the Aquasors (sp?) are really Aquasors this time. Can't wait to see the pictures. Where did you purchase them? I haven't seen them. They would be a great idea for a science center.

Don't know about anyone else, but when your disposable income is 70 cents and Propel costs 65 cents, that might qualify as "price goughing". The government frowns on that practice!

I have my book club which meets once a month for over three hours. Yes, an entire kid-free evening with grown-ups. It's absolutely delightful. We eat, talk and have a wonderful time together. :)

(Great photo of Charlotte by the way...)

What an adorable ballerina! She looks so different with her hair pulled back. And what a smile!!

Doesn't it feel good to find a group of friends like your dance crowd? I have some MOMS Club friends, preschool friends and now grade school friends that I feel that way about. We have a group of 5 who met as preschool moms but are now beyond that and none of our kids go to the same school. So now we meet as the Birthday Club and do dinners out for all of our birthdays. It's a nice way to stay in touch with friends I enjoy even though our kids are moving apart.
