Week in Review

No school accomplished this week. We were busy with a dance workshop, which consumed almost all of our time. I offered to do some read alouds in the evening, but the kids wanted to stare at mindless television. Their mindless channel of choice was Disney Channel ... we also have a free sample of XM radio in the car right now, so it's been tuned to Radio Disney all week while I've been driving them back and forth to dance. In future years as I descend into senility I'll swear that Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato moved into our house this week.

We did have time for a few other things. Thalia got her ears pierced. Here she is biting her lip and deciding if she likes the placement of the dots where they'll be pierced.



We played with Photo Booth. A lot.











"Hello, I'm Zaphod Beeblebrox's younger sister."


We discovered New York brand garlic bread sticks -- in a yellow box in the frozen foods a Dierbergs. Very popular with the Choreography Lunch Break crowd. This is the same crowd that took quite a bit of video of themselves, declaring that it should be put on YouTube -- I'm not really sure the general public is quite ready for it, though. I'll see if we have some blank DVDs around here and put the videos on that, and then they can all marvel at their cleverness.

And we discovered that a friend makes really good chocolate chip muffins (which were really "thank you" enough, by the way).

Another trip to Raging Rivers. This time we found a table up the hill a little, and I spent some time there in the shade reading a book (Murder on the Prowl by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown). This was my view:



Doesn't it look like we're at a lake instead of a water park? What a great day! And a great end to a busy week.

Everyone deserves a week of fun stuff now and again. The dance stuff does tend to become all-consuming when there is a big show or event looming. We're in the midst of that ourselves right now. Spent 3 hours looking for emerald and hot pink bangles this afternoon...
