All together again

Michael got home safely on Saturday morning, and we were all so glad to have him home again. I’m not sure which one of us was more tired! My eyes were completely glazed over when we got back home from the airport (yes, I am fully aware of how self-absorbed that sounds). We all caught a couple of naps this weekend between trips to Denton for Meghan’s dress rehearsal and recital. Having the day off on Monday was really good for Michael, so hopefully he’ll be recovered enough for a full day of work today. Most people we know who make this trip take a couple of weeks to fully recover from the jet lag, but I think Michael has had so many years of “sucking it up” and working on very few hours of sleep that he definitely has an advantage.

My mom, dad, Madison & Alana all met us in Denton for the recital on Sunday (the boys stayed at home with a sitter). Amazingly, my parents really look forward to her recital every year. I say “amazingly” because there are few who actually are excited about sitting through 2 1/2 hours of amateur ballet, but this studio is exceptional. The girls are all so well trained, and the dances really are beautiful and “classy.” (Click here for last year’s explanation of why she is here and why we love it so much.) Seeing Meghan’s improvement from year to year is so neat. She is the youngest in her class, but (no bias!) we think she’s one of the best. I think she’s finally forgiven us for pulling her out of the other studio, and she is very motivated to work hard now because her teacher told her she should be ready for toe shoes after one more year.

My family all came back to our house after the recital for take-out fajitas and some good family togetherness. We had so much fun! We surprised the kids this weekend with a Wii Fit, the newest Wii craze. It is SO FUN! I’ll have to take some pictures soon to post. Even Nathan joined in the fun! It combines aerobic workouts, balance, yoga and strength training. Video games with a purpose. Gotta love that.

Here are a few pics from the recital:

Hope everyone had a safe and festive holiday weekend!
