Dance Recital and a Hike

Olivia had her dance recital the weekend before Memorial Day.  She took Hip Hop plus Dance Troupe, the latter of which performs in a big production, in this case The Little Mermaid.  Both sets of grandparents came to watch and then we had a belated Mother's Day barbeque after.

The Saturday of Memorial Day weekend we went on a hike.  It was a hike I'd been wanting to do since the late '90s and just never have.  It goes to Lake Talapus first and then continues on to Lake Ollalie, but the latter part was too snowy and Olivia didn't want to go in the first place, let alone keep going even further so we just went to Talapus and back.

The next weekend Paul and the girls went with their friend Abby and her dad and another friend to Great Wolf Lodge for an early birthday celebration for Abby.  That meant I got most of a weekend all to myself!  Between laundry and walking the dog I of course didn't manage to do nearly as much as I'd hoped, but I did get a few scrapbook pages done and worked on choosing a paint color for the living room.

The girls have just two more days of school.  Tuesday is their last day and they get out at 11:55.  I took the day off, so I will have just under 3 hours to myself in the morning to do whatever, then the 3 of us will do something after school, not sure what yet.  One of their friends usually has a last-day-of-school party but I haven't heard anything about it yet so we'll see.  Our summer nanny will be here on Wednesday, but then she wasn't available for Thursday and Friday (she will start full-time on Monday the 18th) so Paul took Thursday off and I will work from home on Friday.  I can't believe that in less than 3 months they will start their LAST year of elementary school!
