A couple of weeks ago I started feeling pretty crappy. I knew it was worse than just a cold, so I went to see Dr. Harris. Sure enough it was the flu! I couldn't believe it, 3 and 1/2 days off from work, separated from the girls for a week and the worst sickness I think I have ever experienced! It was miserable. Thankfully the girls where shuffled around from one family member to the next in hopes that they would not get sick too. It worked for a while, but poor Miss Priss ended up with a lesser case of the flu. Little Bit NEVER came down with it though. I couldn't be more blessed with all the family around. I was able to get over my sickness and keep the girls from getting really sick! Thanks to all the grandparents out there for all their help!
So because of all this flu mess, Miss Priss had to miss her very first ballet recital. I really hated it for her! She was soooooo looking forward to it and she had been practicing so very hard. With a fever of 100.5, we decided to let her stay with Papa Jim while Granny T brought Little Bit to the recital.
We were all delightfully surprised with Little Bit's performance! She was a doll! She has also been practicing really hard and she had her five minutes in the spotlight. I was able to make it to the recital, but I had to sit in the back away from everyone else. Here are a couple of shots I was able to capture though!
Stretching before the big performance.
All the girls listening so intently. Too cute.
Waiting for the music to begin.
My favorite picture!
Done! Walking off stage.
We were all so proud of Little Bit. She did such a great job and didn't go shy on us! Hopefully Miss Priss will not be sick for the next recital and everyone can see how well she dances too!
