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!
With Blogger’s unexpected outage this week, you may have missed the reviews that were supposed to have gone live this week. Here they are again in case you are interested:
- Faith by Jennifer Haigh
- You Believers by Jane Bradley
- Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I also revisited blog tours in the latest Trends in Book Blogging.
I also had another productive reading week. With all the time at various practices, this was inevitable. Look for reviews of the following books to appear in the next few weeks.
- The White Devil by Justin Evans
- The First Husband by Laura Dave
- Bossypants by Tina Fey
- Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly
- Don’t Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon
Thanks, Ceri! I was a tomboy too, even though I harbored secret dreams of becoming a ballerina. Thanks to an early puberty and growth spurt, my parents always considered me too tall, and the fact that I was never very flexible convinced them that they would be throwing away their money. So, I rejoice in the fact that she loves it. I can handle dance much better than I can handle her love of cheerleading!
Bossypants is absolutely hilarious. I think I have my review posting on Thursday, so stay tuned! It's been an eclectic reading month, hasn't it?
Awwww, Holly – what a sweetheart. 🙂 I was a bit of a tomboy when I was a child so ballet never interested me but if I ever have kids, I know I want them in tutus! Hahaha!

Good luck with the busy schedules! Quite a few fun looking books in the pile read – I've been hearing a lot about Bossypants especially so looking forward to your review.
