This morning while I took Lydia to her music class, Mary stayed home with Nana. Nana took this cute picture of Mary working on her puzzles:
Then we had to drop Nana off at the airport. That was sad.
But as I was driving home, I saw a billboard advertising Zoorassic Park at the Hogle Zoo. Since Lydia is on a huge dinosaur kick, I exited right off of the freeway, drove the girls to lunch, and then went straight to the zoo.
When Abe got home, he let the girls play outside with the neighbors while I lay in bed and researched Suzuki teachers for Lydia. I emailed a bunch asking to observe lessons and recitals, and so far I have had one response. This teacher says she doesn’t allow lesson observation by parents or anyone else, and I thought that goes against the very heart of Suzuki philosophy. Oh well. It makes it easier to narrow down the list if other teachers come back with similar responses.
After I emailed the teachers, we all piled in the car and donated loads upon loads of stuff to DI. Our van was packed floor to ceiling with garbage bags. We feel terrific to have that stuff gone.
