Friday Flowers: Flowers for Two Dancers

Happy Friday!

How was your week? I hope it was a good one.  For us it was a quiet week especially compared to last week when I was shuffling the twins to school and back late into the evening every day for their school’s Winter Dance Production.  Last Friday was their opening night and they had practices every evening leading up to it.  I made sure to get tickets for their Friday night performance and what a phenomenal show it was!  Almost two hours of dances performed by over 175 students to the tune of 25 songs. Just amazing. Our twins were in two dances this year.
