Anna has been taking ballet, jazz, and tap this year. On her recital, she'll be performing a ballet dance and a tap dance. Her costumes are so cute! I've never seen her so excited as she was today to put on her costumes, a little makeup, and take pictures.

So far the kids have missed 6 days due to snow this year. This is the worst winter I've ever experienced in Georgia. I lived in Utah for 2 years and in Ukraine for a year and a half and I know that in those places, the snow is beautiful and it doesn't slow anyone down. Here, we had a layer of ice covered by several inches of snow...very dangerous, but very fun if you're a kid getting out of school!

Now I teach 16 piano students each week, do 2-3 Reminiscents gigs a month, and play Princess occassionally. I'm Room Mom for Anna's class and the School Nurse is now my best friend. I feel like I live at the Elementary School which is opposite of Mali's Middle School, where I feel like I never know what's going on there. Franco and I are still honeymooning after 15 years (which grosses Mali out) and I really love my family.

She was always very serious about her hair for the classes. Each Thursday she made sure she had all her things together to take to school and would have me pull her hair into a bun, which required many bobby pins, rubber bands, hair nets, hairspray, and gel. Normally, Anna doesn't allow me to even brush her hair, but for this, she endured a lot of tugging and pulling on her hair. If you look closely, you can see the sparkly pink bobby pins that she found at the store and the beautiful ribbons around the bun.
She will definitely continue with dance classes next year so look forward to more recital pictures to come. I really like the way this company does things. They come to the school for a one hour class each week and then for the recital, the children weren't required to pay high fees to be in the recital or to buy an expensive costume that they will never wear again. The company owns all the matching little costumes which they loaned us for the 30 minutes and made each little girl a crown out of silver pipe cleaners which she got to keep. So precious! I know I keep saying that, but what else can I say!

The most fun part of going to Nanni's house is getting to ride on the golf cart.
Look at my cutie pies!
Anna spent the whole day sneaking cookies!
