We're all busy otherwise! We had a few days rest, though always busy around the house, and Josh and I had dentist appts this morning in town. Everything looks good - no cavities for either of us! Yay!!
Ruthie had her end of the year dance recital yesterday afternoon. She did very well with her performances! (videos are uploaded on the site, May 27) Unfortunately, she did lose her tap shoes somehow which we're not pleased about. We were told we didn't need to change the kids or anything, there would be helpers for all of that, yet the shoes are gone. Most annoying part is that there weren't any shoes left in the change room at all (we stayed until everyone else had left the room) which means someone had to have taken 2 pairs of tap shoes home - how do you not notice that?? I called the dance studio and the owner as soon as we got home yesterday and will be calling again today. I plan to continue calling until I get either the shoes or some money to buy a new pair.
On a side-note; Ruthie's dance recital is this afternoon! She is very excited about it. We are all going to watch, not sure how much I'll get to sit and watch with the boys there, but I did take her to the dress rehersal on Friday and saw the performances. I will make sure to get Josh to take a video of her 2 performances and will post them tonight or tomorrow.
His upper arm is still very swollen and red, but the swelling has come down some from the top of his shoulder.
A bruise is showing where the needle was actual given.
Guess Jack needs to step it up. And I guess Josh needs to set some traps out there.
As I sit here thinking about that, I wonder should I move the strollers I have under the breezeway. I'm not sure mice would bother them, but would they try to nest in them? YUCK!
Other than that, we're all fine and well. Busy, but good. Ruthie's dance class is winding up for the summer, which means extra trips in for rehersals and the end of the year concert. I'm a bit ticked off that, even though we're parents of a dancer, we have to pay $20 to watch her dance in the recital. I think that's a bit odd. I'm not sure what's going to happen next fall with dance. I think Ruthie would like to continue, and I know Zech would love to start. But I'd like to be able to find a time slot that works a bit better for us, especially for Josh being able to come and watch sometimes. But we'll have to see what their schedule looks like when it gets made up. I definitely think we'll continue the swim lessons in the fall. I'm not worrying about anything this summer - with the trip to NS and camping with Jen and Paul we'll be busy enough, I think.
Zech saying "cheese"... I think.
Okay, and that's all I'm posting here! To see the rest, and a few videos, too (the one of Zech going on the slide really is awesome to see!), just check out the "pictures and videos" link over there ---->
