Lauren has been on cloud nine because one of her little dance buddies has "tippy toe shoe" and has let Lauren wear them during break time at dance class (this is her NON ballet dance class). She was so excited that I got there at break time because she wanted me to take pictures and video. She wants those shoes so badly, but the ballet teacher says she's not old enough. Lauren insisted that the teacher did NOT know what she was talking about and her friend is six and already has them. So, to prove my point I had her go ask her little friend how old she was. The look on Lauren's face was priceless. "Mom, she said she is NINE!" :)
This week we have been seeing record lows and unusual weather for our region. It has been in the 30's and many around us saw a dusting of snow and we had sleet! (that's one for the history books) I know we have been in much colder in the States, but it always seems way colder here. I think in part because the city is built for the usually warm climate, so there is no insulation, everything is made of concrete, and you can forget about central heating! I felt so bad going to wake the girls up this morning for school. Lauren was completely covered head to toe sound asleep and it was COLD!
