Off to Never Never Land

We can fly, We can fly , We can fly -

Well, maybe not - but some ballerinas will be flying! The oldest ones of course! Tinker Belle and Peter Pan will fly in this fantastic Ballet presented by International Youth Ballet!

Lauren had try outs tonight and she will be a Fairy and a Mermaid!

She is so excited and so are we!

I can not wait for the 4 hour Saturday and Sunday Rehearsals, the late nights just before opening night, the 4 shows in a row with two costume changes each to see Peter Pan the Ballet and Lauren performing in it!

Now on to more pressing business...what was the story?

First let me say one of you actually just about got it spot on right!

No it wasn't those of you who think I write like a 3 year old,

or those who are busying dialing social services right now.

Though Kim could have been right she wasn't -

it was Bonnie - Yes Dear Bonnie you were darn close.

It was Thanksgiving Day 2003, Grandma Mary had come to visit, the turkey was cooking, mom was doing something on her computer for a few minutes, Lauren was watching and a couple minutes later Lauren was snoring!

(oh, and though it may resemble one, that is not a uniform - just a dress!!!)
