Katie's recital was a huge success. She loved every minute of it, and I don't think anyone could be prouder of how well she did. She remembered all the steps, and did absolutely great. Even her teacher was spotted crying behind the curtains as the girls finished.
Waiting in the band room backstage for her turn.
This was the first guy to greet us, or rather to greet Nicholas' shoe. I believe it was a blue Morpho. Nick was less than appreciative, and luckily this guy managed to escape with his life, thanks to one fearless mother who plucked him gently from the shoe. Katie was enthralled by the eyespots, especially after learning all about them from the Magic School Bus. She didn't like how her brother got "attacked" though and spent the rest of the time fairly apprehensive.
I believe this is a Julia butterfly. Very small and orange to match the marigolds it liked to fly among. One even managed to land on Grandpa's hat.
And the family of 4 once more.

She missed her first recital, which would have been last year this time at the Galveston Opera House because we moved 2 weeks before the date. So since that time she has been worried about what a recital would be like.
A sigh of relief and a big smile
Did somebody say something about being nervous??
Partially eaten corn
Snapdragons are back in bloom
While the weather was off and on rainy, we still managed to have a very good time and the kids were sad to go. They especially loved this park nearby that has some non-traditional play equipment.
Katie loves to swing and can make herself go higher than anyone I have ever seen, yet she still begs to be pushed every so often, and Grandpa was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Nick can compete in the swinging contest as well, but he still needs the assistance of good ole DAD!
