Weekly Wrap Up–Carnival of Animals

This has been a crazy busy week.  33 ballet students came together to learn and perform Carnival of Animals in one week.  The performance will be Sunday, with a live orchestra (a first for most of these dancers).   The dancers and teachers have put in 27 hours at the ballet studio, not including a couple of hours on Sunday and then the performance.  I’m hoping to get photos to share with you.

The most important (to us) news is that Olivia was fitted for her pointe shoes this week!   Regular classes start Monday and the girls are all super excited to start en pointe.

In addition to the crazy ballet schedule, Olivia also had a 10 hour stint at the museum on Thursday.   Both first and second year JLS members spent the day at the museum cooking, playing games and having a barn dance.    First year students (like Olivia) left at 10pm and 2nd year students were allowed to stay and have a sleep over on sight.   Needless to say, Friday morning she was slow moving.

We’re also hosting a back to school bash tonight (Friday) for some of the girls friends.   I’m hoping to have photos of that for next week.

If you’re looking for a fun, low stress art project, check out our Joseph Stella Artist Study from earlier in the week.


This week’s recipe is Mock Egg-Custard Pie.   If you’re looking for a delish way to use up an over abundance of yellow squash, this is the recipe for you!
