Skipping School

It is the start of the Nutcracker performance weekends. The next two weeks will be really crazy for Big C.

She has to be in Suffolk today at 4:30 for an all night spacing and dress rehearsal. I am working back stage and David is staying home with Little C.

Last night Big C came to inform me that she needed new ballet shoes because they dyed hers grey for her role as a rat and she needs pink shoes for her china ribbon role.

This only helped convince me more to allow her to skip school today. Just so I didn't have to drive all the way to VB to pick her up from school, then back home to Norfolk, then all the way to Suffolk during rush hour traffic.

She isn't objecting but I am feeling a tad guilty.....

Well at least I didn't have to sew the shoes :)


  1. I hope you are taking some good pics of her performance! Can't wait to see them! Molly

  2. Not enough hours in the day... you had to do it!

  3. Leah skipped school today as well. Sinus issues and lack of interest in learning is going to be the excuse note!
