4/22 ~ Trying


Lately, my patience isn't what it needs to be.  I'm working on doing a better job with biting my tongue -- but sometimes, I just want to whip my hair around and say what is really on my mind.

4/21 ~ Colorful


Some of the flowers that Julia got at her recital.

4/20 ~ Gathered



I kept all the black jelly beans for me.  They are the best ones.

4/19 ~ Baby turns one


Julia's recital was Saturday morning.  Then we went to a birthday party for a one year old  I got to take pictures.  And life was good.

4/18 ~ The view


From the parking lot at school.  

Rain.
More rain.

Even more rain predicted for the entire weekend.

And too much planned into one weekend.

4/17 ~ Buh buh ballet


We survived the dress rehearsal.  Saturday morning is recital and the girls are ready.

I'm ready, too.

Who knew there was so much to learn about what to do backstage when changing the girl from one outfit to another?  I had several mothers show me what I was doing wrong.  :)  Better that they showed me tonight before I screwed it up on Saturday.

4/16 ~ If you'll just excuse me


I don't like to toot my own horn... but I was excited this afternoon to receive this book from Yahoo.  Back in February, I received an email asking for permission to use one of my images for the 10th anniversary of Flickr.  As a thank you, they sent a book with a compilation of all the pictures -- including one of mine -- that were used in the video celebration.

Isn't that kind of marvelous?  Plus, it makes a great coffee table book.
