We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Family Dance!

Last Wednesday Marley didn't have school because that night her school had a 
FAMILY DANCE!

When that smoke machine would come on there was a mad dash!
Marley and I have dance parties together quite often. 
We love to dance!
I was blind sided by the fact that Marley wanted NOTHING to do with us.
She just wanted to dance with her friends and her teachers.
I am 99% sure she is asking that little boy if he likes her dress.
It was like our 3 year old was a teenager already.
If she saw that we were near she would bolt in the other direction.
"Where's my mom and dad? I have got to keep them at a cool distance!"
This is the little girl that Marley sits by on the bus. 
They became fast friends when school started and they spent a good portion of the night dancing together.
I don't think Marley has ever seen anyone break dance before, she is a natural though.
She loves to dance on the floor, spinning, kicking, and twisting.
And splitting.
"Hurry! Get up! The smoke!"

And at the end each kid got a new hat and mittens. 
I think Marley picked the coolest hat!

On the way home we hear from the back seat,
"Guys! I'm sorry I didn't want to dance with you. I just wanted to dance with my fwiends....
but, you're still my fwiends."

Phew!

Last night on the way home NPR was interviewing two guys from REM and the break up. They were talking about how they wished they could have hair does for their act but all they had was good music. Hah.
