We are definitely in the throes of the spring season: two soccer games, three soccer practices, ten hours of ballet practice, school music programs, testing, writing contests, and a ballet recital. This was just one week’s worth of events. It’s been an insane week, one of those weeks where Jim and I only get a chance to talk once we fall into bed exhausted. As this is the last week of ballet, it should get better starting tomorrow. As crazy as it has been, it has been fun because both of the kids are having so much fun this season. Holly is absolutely fascinated by the bigger girls’ and their various dances. Connor’s soccer team is doing really well this season too. Their joy makes all the mileage and time spent away from work/home totally worth it.
Speaking of Holly, here is her dance that she will be performing for the final time this afternoon. This was taken at the first full dress rehearsal, where they were working on the lighting. She is the third from the left if you want to keep track. Enjoy!

I also revisited blog tours in the latest Trends in Book Blogging.
