Saturday was Red's big dance recital. Her jazz class danced to a hip hop version of "If You're Happy and You Know It." Needless to say, it was adorable. We went out for dinner and ice cream afterwards. It was fantastic! Here are some cute photos from that day:

Me and Red being goofyThe Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading. I can't say enough good things about how effective that book is! Fifteen months (we started March 2010) and 231 lessons later, she can read words like "extraterrestrial" and "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." She told me this morning that her favorite lesson was #151 because she liked the song in it.
Have you seen the ghost of John?
Long, white bones with the rest all gone,
Oh wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?
Got to love the 5 year old sense of humor. Happy Monday!
