despite all the craziness that is our life at the moment, life continues to go on as normal as well. for isa this means ballet every week and her first recital this saturday. wow! her little costume has been hanging in her closet for a few weeks and while she asks atleast once a day to take it out and play with it, she's been really patient! she's been looking forward to dancing on stage in a costume since we went to the Nutcracker last winter, so she's pretty excited about her class' performance on saturday. and she's doubly excited that Nanny is here to watch her too! rest assured we will be armed with camera, video, cellphone, you name it... this first will not go undocumented!
