The girls recital was Sunday and both did a great job! Both sets of grandparents were able to attend and we had a cookout and cake after the show.

First Day of Summer!

The last day of school was Tuesday and today is the first official day of summer! Becca came home with lots of goodies from school. Including a journal she kept during the year and a friendship book that is super cute. Becca's report card was excellent. She is reading at a late third grade level and exceeds expectations in every subject except penmanship which is satisfactory. She is excited about going to second grade but is really going to miss her teacher from this year who was really great.

I thought our schedule was going to slow down with the last day of school but it hasn't happened yet. Yesterday I watched two kids for a friend and in the evening was the dress rehearsal for the girls recital. Today I am watching a child for another friend. Tomorrow I will have to play catch-up on all the things I didn't get done for the past two days due to an extra busy house.

Saturday Becca has a birthday party to attend and Sunday afternoon is the recital. Then things will slow down....at least until July 1st when Dom and I will be off to the Nascar race at NHIS!

Dancing Divas

Since most of you won't be able to see the girls at thier recital here is a sneak peek at their costumes. Both girls are in the opening number which is "You've got a friend in me." from Toy Story. Becca is all 70's funk in her purple tie-dye bell bottoms. She is dancing to "Keep on" by the Brady Bunch. I am sure any of you that watched the Brady Bunch remembers their short lives musical career. I believe it was just a lame attempt to compete with the Partridge family. But anyway it is a super cute outfit. Kenzie is the prima ballerina in her sparkly tutu. She is dancing to a song called "The Magic Garden" and I have no idea who sings it. Being the true diva that Kenzie is she declared her costume the most beautiful. Also in true diva fashion she has been having an attitude about actually performing. So I have my fingers crossed that all will go smoothly. You will of course get the full review after their performance on the 24th!

Counting down

Only 12 days left of school. Yes I am the one counting down the days, not my daughter. I am looking forward to the lazy days of summer with no schedule to adhere to. So there are 12 days of school two more dance classes for each girl and the recital, then we are free for the beach, the boat and playdates whenever we want!!

Memorial day weekend was the end of the wedding circuit for Dom and I. Dom's cousin Liz got married. It was a beautiful day and a traditonal Italian wedding, meaning lots of people, lots of food and lots of fun! It was also like a class reunion for Dom, who graduated from high school with the groom. The kids(and the dogs) spent two nights at Grammie's leaving Dom and I an empty house to enjoy. Actually we weren't even home long enough to enjoy it. By the time I got home from dropping the girls off at my parents after getting Becca from school and getting stuck in all the tourist traffic for the long weekend, it was dinner time. Dom and I did got out to dinner, which was nice. We attempted to sleep late the next morning but we are so used to getting up early that didn't really work. It was just nice to lay in bed and not have to worry about anyone elses needs. By mid-morning we were off to Gloucester for the wedding and to visit with Dom's sister Lisa and her husband Chuck who flew in the for the wedding from Colorado. We spent the night in Gloucester and on Sunday morning suprised Dom's parents with brunch out at a local restaurant. Then we all headed back to our house so Lisa and Chuck could visit with the girls.
Monday was a day to regroup after all the festivities of the weekend. Somehow, despite all that went on I didn't manage to take one picture all weekend!
