Snow day. A real one. Actual snow on the ground. Not a ton. But enough to warrant cancelling school. Very rare down here. So it was even more exciting!

Peer Pressure.

We now have three out of our four hens laying again.

Woot. Woot.


Buster. And tights.
We're an exciting bunch.
Keepin' it real.


Ballet Audition #3.

Left the house at 6am.
Made it to DC before 10am.
Audition was at 1pm.
Only 16 girls this time.
Great inspiring teacher.
Challenging combinations.
BB came out all smiles.
Pit stop at IKEA.
I came out all smiles.
Dinner stop at a favorite Drive-Thru.
Back home by 10pm.
I carried my camera in my bag the entire time.
And never took a single photo.
Until we got home and I was about to crawl into bed.
At least I remembered.



ahhhh...Saturday. Horse lessons. A nice respite each week.

The Little Ballerina got a new horse today. Puffin. He is a BIG boy. Made it hard to tack him. LB couldn't reach the top of his head to put his bridle on. I could barely reach it myself. Luckily, he is a gentle giant. And LB rode him like a champ.

Thank you, Puffin.


Needed to take a head shot for one of the Big Ballerina's friends today. Practiced on the only model available. Me.

Out of focus selfie. With yummy light. And messy garage.

Some days you just gotta go with what you've got...


And they lived happily ever after.

Cocoa must have read my post from Day 13.
