talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Dancing feet

It's official! Thanks to the generosity of family, both girls will be attending dance lessons at the local university this winter. Fiona will take beginning ballet, and Nora will be in pre-dance. Oddly enough, dance is more affordable than gymnastics class! The girls will get a taste of dance, and if they like it we'll find some gymnastics for them somewhere later.

The classes continue for many weeks, which should fill our dreams with delightful visions of sugarplums. Both girls already have hand-me-down leotards that fit the dress code-- hooray! And if they have half as much fun dancing as they did trying on the special shoes, we're in for a jolly good time. Fiona had the chance to take ballet or ballet/tap, but having seen a sampler of The Nutcracker put on by our local ballet company in the library theater a couple weeks ago, she was all-systems-go for ballet. Let the fun begin!
