Saturday ballet

This afternoon we went to see The Little Mermaid ballet in Akron.  For the first time I was really disappointed in the quality of the performance by this youth ballet company.  We have seen several shows by them including the Wizard of Oz and the Nutcracker, and each time I have been amazed at the costumes, sets, music, and professional level of dance.  Not today.  I wouldn't tell Grace but even the front row seats couldn't make up for the lackluster performances by the dancers.  The best part of the experience was spending a few hours with my girl who is growing up WAY TOO FAST and getting to see Kellie and Dawson.
Those words on the wall behind Grace are 
words she is learning at school.  I am trying to reinforce them 
at home without making it too much of a chore. 
When we were looking for a parking space downtown Grace noticed these banners hanging on the outside of the parking garage. She said she wanted to take a picture in front of them, but then when we got there on foot, she was cold so she looks a little "distressed" in this photo!  But, driving around Akron reminded me that there are some cool things to photograph....when the weather is a little warmer!

Those banners are interesting! Grace is something else; she notices everything. You are going to have to start spelling words now, as listens to everything too!LOL
