Belated Birthday, and Huzzah!
Happy Shakespeare's Birthday, a day late!
Also dh's birthday, on the 21st. I brought some flowers. (Ah, you're thinking, that's why so quiet this week; you would be correct about that.) He would have been 49.
More cheerful by a long way is the hard work of eldest child on her costume for Anime Boston. She and her friends started working on this huge project last September, and the results were breathtaking. They won first prize for craftsmanship in the novice division, and also a special judges' award - and one can only win two awards. Very, very proud mom, here. Have a look:
And that's all for now. The convention was amazing, the kids were amazing, they were so thrilled to win, and that's been the week. Other than a Pilates lesson, in which I discovered that my years of dance training and work in musical theatre resulted in completely unconscious turnout. The Pilates teacher has to keep telling me that my feet are pointed outward. Apparently this is so ingrained that I can only NOT do it with a lot of struggle. Ah, well; learning something new is good.
