|My husband only took a few shots at the gardens and dear son's pictures refuse to come off his phone.|
Phantom of The Opera ~ This was Anne's very first Broadway Musical. She was spellbound. It was wonderful and perfect. We purchased seats in the orchestra with a warning that there may be obstructed view for less than 10% of the show. I figured that was worth it for $100 discount off our tickets. It didn't matter in the least. The show was fantastic. We were so close we could see the facial expressions of all of the performers.
Grandpa Visited ~ My father made a two day stop with us on his way to Florida. He rested up and visited. It was so nice to see how well he is doing. It is hard to believe we rushed up to Washington, D.C. to say goodbye to him just two Easters ago. The doctors really weren't sure he was going to make it through brain surgery to remove fungus from his brain. It has been a long road to recovery, but he is doing great.

Building a Desk ~ Grandpa spent a lot of time with Dean this trip helping him build a computer desk in his closet. They picked out wood, did tons of measuring and used tons of tools (drill, circular saw, t-square and level, etc.). It was a great experience for Dean. I am so glad they had that time to bond.
The Presentation on Mexico~ We got together with our friends and had our culture club day. We studied Mexico this time. They told us all about the Mayans and we told them about the Mexican American war and the Day of the Dead. Then we had a little Mexican feast.
A Sneak peek at one of the dances for the showcase ~
I little Cha Cha... I hope to get a picture of her in all of her costumes this weekend. There are 10! of them. She is in 10 of the 16 dances. She is going to have some crazy costume changes. I am especially looking forward to the trio dance that she and her friends choreographed themselves. It is really gripping both in music and choreography.
One more performance ~ We also saw a school Matinee performance of a dance company called Body Traffic from Los Angeles. They were great and inspiring to my dancer.
What an action packed week. We did get a bit of book work done, but we really have to buckle down next week after all the fun this week.
