What a busy day!

Yesterday was such a busy day! I had an almost full day of work and did some more.

The Little Miss had her first ballet lesson yesterday. I was so proud of my little girl - she showed heaps of confidence and just proceeded to do everything the teacher asked them to do. She was so eager to start and to ballet just like Barbie.

Learning to walk on tippy toes and curtsy.

Ready in front of the line to do her dance.

And what is cuter than a 4 year old in ballet gear.

And saying thanks to Grammy who is paying for the lessons and taking her every Wednesday.

Little man L got his glasses. And yes, by golly, he is wearing them! He does take them off now and again, but most of the time it is going well.

Our little professor.

We had a great good-bye dinner with friends Thomas and Sarita who are leaving for the US on Sunday for at least two years, possibly forever. He got a great offer form the Pennsylvania University in Hershey and she will have to learn to be a SAHM - she is currently an attorney.

The men having a cheers!

And what is better than a great cocktail?
We are already looking forward to their first holiday back in July.


  1. what a beautiful little ballerina! and a cute professor too :)

  2. There is nothing cuter than little girls in ballet clothes! My daughter started dance classes this past September and they are having their first recital in June. I can hardly wait! Her grandmother pays for her classes too!! I think it must be a grandmother thing..I've noticed a trend. :)

  3. L looks so handsome in his glasses! Good luck with them!

  4. Happy Birthday to your little girl! Those ballet photos bring back memories of my ballet days. Alas, with boys, ballet most likely won't be in my future (in my husband can help it!)...and even if they do end up taking lessons, the pink leotard and tutu cuteness wouldn't be there. Oh, cute, cute cute!!

    And that is wonderful that L is keeping his glasses on. My kids have broken several pairs of our glasses...hopefully they make the kid-version a little "kid-proof"? Regardless...he looks so cute with the glasses!

  5. Your kids are just gorgeous! I love little kids in glasses. Too cute. Looks like a fun farewell.


So what's on your mind?
