I can’t believe it has been two weeks since Easter. The time was filled with so many good things I feel out of breath.
I have to start with Easter Day, cause… well… Brussel Sprouts (1) are the yummiest veggie now that I know how to make them properly.
AND all five of us in a picture (2) Now the boys are men, trying to get them to sit still for family photos is harder than when they were toddlers.
The Cheshire Cat head is coming along (3)
Watson was not feeling well, but he is doing much better now. (4) GirlyK felt sorry for him and went out to lay with him. She ended up falling asleep. I didn’t have the heart to wake her for dance.
|Could you have woken her up?|
The ducklings are enormous (5). They come to our back door and knock to be fed at least three times a day.
After all of his lifeguard training, it is official… Zany has a job (6). He will be working for the Parks and Recreation department lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons.
|This is Zany's second longboard design.|
It rained! In the face of a drought, every drop is exciting (7).
Ase attended the West Coast Dance Explosion in Long Beach (8)
|Our view from the hotel room.|
for his final dance convention of the year.
And to our surprise, he won the Elite Dancer award (9). That means he is eligible to perform in Las Vegas for a national award in July. Now the fun part starts of how to financially manage it. Good thing I can sew. I’m hoping to throw a few things into my etsy shop over the next week.
|We both need to be pinched.|
GirlyK FINALLY got her own phone. What is her first photo? Her ridiculous feet in pointe shoes. (10)
As for the three things that made me feel like a Worthwhile Human Being:
|This was ridiculously delicious|
ii. While helping Ase figure out the hotel, on Monday, Mutant had a follow up test from his ER visit. GirlyK had to attend a school for testing. Watson needed to go to the vet- of course all at the same time. I managed it all with a pretty good attitude in spite of being sleep deprived from the weekend.
iii. I break out in song spontaneously. Often I use this power to lighten a mood.
