An interesting thought

I have a thing for tattoos. Did you know that? Well, now you do. I really really wanted to get one (and still secretly do) and when I was 17 I almost got one. Alas, I was broke, and didn't get one. It turned out fine, because, really, I'm fine without any tattoos. 

Okay, so back to loving tattoos. I think if I would have gotten that first one, I would have gotten more. And I think sleeves are AWESOME! I told Dustin I probably would have gotten one sleeve. Like a whole arm tattoo. Probably not all at once, but eventually it would have covered my whole arm. The left one. :D When I told Dustin this, I asked him if he still would have dated me or married me.

You know what he said? Probably not. Interesting, no? I'm not angry with him for this answer, because it's true. Why should I be angry with the truth? I find it VERY interesting, though. I don't find it to be judgemental either.  He said I probably wouldn't be the same person. And I have to say that I think that's true too. 

He met me when I was at a very good point in my life. And he's seen me at my worst too. I like the way things turned out.

And also, Sarah is "Potty Training". At our house that just means she's wearing underwear. hahahaha. And she gets candy for using the toilet. It's going okay. She is having lots of success. I'm so glad it summer! We can be outside lots. The biggest surprise is how helpful Miaya has been in the process. She is always helpful with Sarah, but she's encouraged her heaps when it comes to using the toilet. I didn't think she'd even bother herself with it. But she's been awesome. I'm a lucky Mamma to have two such lovely daughters. :) I love them.

Sarah made a new friend

On Saturday (that would be June 2nd) we went to the pinewood derby that our ward had, and Miaya had made a car with Dustin's help. It was like a carnival type thing, and Sarah ended up making a new friend. She also seems to like the music. ho ho ho.

Spring Concert: Dancing Through Broadway

 The is year Miss Margene's spring concert was called Dancing Through Broadway. Miaya's Class's dance was called Doll on a Music Box. It's that song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang where Truly Scrumptious is pretending to be a doll on a music box. They were so cute and lovely. I have video, but I'll post it another time because it's having troubles right now. It was way fun, though.

By the way, these are Miaya's dance pictures, and were taken by JBP Photography. She's done an excellent job with Miaya since she was 3. :)

 At rehearsal, on Friday the 1st of June.

Miaya is right in the middle.
Must haves for rehearsal: water and snacks. It was pretty warm. I didn't remember her tutu! But I did remember it for the performances1 hahahaha.
First performance: Monday June 4th.

Miaya and her partner Mia.

They did really well

twirl and skip and make a shape

 We left early on Monday night. It was really hot, and Sarah couldn't run around like she wanted to. Miaya was pretty devastated to miss finale, but it turned out okay. Everybody was EXHUASTED.

Final Performance: Tuesday the 5th of June.Miaya and Mia are in the front on the left.

Miaya was freezing! It was pretty cold. Blazing hot yesterday, and freezy cold today.

 Finale! Miaya and her class are off to the left. She's one of the taller little ones.
Miaya's right in the middle next to the little girl in the red jacket.

Smile for the group picture!
I'm glad we got to stay the whole time last night. Yesterday was crazy windy, so I wasn't sure if they'd still have the performance, because it's an outside amphitheater. But I think lots of people decided not to come, because there were plenty of seats available, so we were able to sit where we could get up lots with Sarah, and not bug too many people. We bundled the girls up and snuggled and got to watch most of the show. It was so fun.
