This last week has been a doozy, and that's saying something, because the week before was a doozy as well. Hallie put it perfectly when at one point she responded to less-than-stellar news (this time about a school-related issue) with, "well isn't that just kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic." Thanks, Friends, for making sure we have a funny comeback to use in just about every situation.
We had a great Halloween. We had friends over, the kids went trick-or-treating (and the dads accompanied for part of the evening), and the moms ran the candy cannon in the driveway.

Hallie received a wonderful role - her first demi-soloist role - in her ballet academy's production of Cinderella (to be performed Memorial Day weekend 2024). She's thrilled, and is looking forward to starting rehearsals...after Nutcracker, of course.
Hallie had a great choir concert last Thursday night, but the best part about the night was when Will forgot that Hallie was in high school - they go to the SAME school and he drives her to school EVERY morning - and "went to the concert" at the middle school. Thankfully he called me, and once I pointed out his mistake he booked it to the high school and was still able to see and hear her sing.
I didn't get picked for jury duty. 😉
This little pipsqueak has squirmed her way into Popeye's heart and has even managed to get Plié to warm up to her.
Happy weekend, friends!
