Saturday at the 70s skating show
Just a few photos from Julia's ice skating show on Saturday. I got super lucky and was called off of work--sad because I lose $, but happy to be able to attend both performances. My mom came to the first performance and then took use out for lunch--yummy pasta. We were deeply disappointed that Ted's dad didn't come, despite the fact that he told Ted twice that he would be there--but so goes it.
While it was totally exciting to watch my daughter blossom in front of my eyes--it was equally thrilling to be in the stands with Alihan dancing to the music and Rauan standing behind me with his arms around me while he watched his sister. My husband and mom next to me--what more could I ask for? We have been blessed beyond our wildest expectations.
Julia did 2 shows--4 performances in each show. Yes she slept like an angel!
Next week first communion, then Julia's birthday and then her figure skating test performance! Wow-we all need a break! I'm cutting Julia to ice skating once a week right after her testing. After all she's not quite 8 and she needs to play. Heck, I need time to play. Rauan does his gifted and talented testing this next week. One way or the other we'll have answers. I haven't heard anything from the social worker about adjusting Alihan's age. I'll make another phone call this week.
Time for me to shower so I can go to work. No complaints from me--having last night off made me a very happy momma!
