We are getting ready for Disney....can you tell?
Last time we went, we didn't see any princesses. This time, it is going to be a girl trip - just Grace, Nana, and Mommy - and we have three princess character meals planned....including one at Cinderella's castle!

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!

It was February 17th but the backdrop for Grace's school photos was a spring scene. Whoever the photographer was, he or she did a fantastic job getting her to show her real smile. I love them!
And the class photo came out cute. I love when Grace tells me the names of all the children. She doesn't hesitate for a second and is a little impatient with me for NOT knowing everyone. I think she forgets that I am not the one who hangs out with her friends all day!

In honor of what would have been Dr. Seuss's 108th birthday tomorrow, Grace's school celebrated Dr. Seuss day with stories and fun activities. We are doing the same thing at my school so I bought this hat for her (well, both of us)...I guess she has a little growing to do before it will fit!
