Isabel had her dance showcase last weekend

Ballet was danced to "Music Box Dancer"

She is the very enthusiastic monkey in the front row during the second part, after they switched places

And tap was to the very fun "Alphabet Boogie"


Excuse the shakiness -- I couldn't stop laughing -- I kept expecting her to kick/crash into her friends, especially towards the last part

Again, she is the first one to your right after the row change.

I LOOOOVE last minute notes from the teachers asking to dress kids up as Mother Goose characters the next day.

Usually, I will burn the midnight oil making something. And I actually almost went down that path, looking up for inspirational images on Google (What did people do before Google?)

Then my laziness got the better of me that night, and I creatively figured out a way to have a costume in under 5 minutes.

With minimal effort...

Since I made Isabel do most of the work

She went as "Jill"

From Jack and Jill.

Who went up the hill. 

And in case there was any lingering doubt about it, that is a "Pail of Water" she is carrying.

(which led to an interesting conversation of "Why did they have to go up the hill to get water, momma?")

 Can you tell which is my handwriting and which is hers? 

I am not sure if I should be impressed that a 4 year old's handwriting can be so similar to a grownup, or if I should be embarrassed that my writing is really like a 4 year old's.
