And they did. After the fact. The weeks leading up to the show Callie mentioned many times how much she wished she didn't have to be a witch. I can't even count the number of times she said she wished she didn't have to be in the show. And Lexi, she wanted to be in the show until it was time for her to put on her cowgirl jeans and then she wanted to stay home. I had to wrestle her into her denim and we compromised on the red handkerchief that she refused to tie around her neck. When you are in the thick of the whining and complaining it's easy to doubt yourself and wonder what the heck you're doing. How easy it would be to throw in the towel and say, "forget it, we're staying home."
But I've been here before and I knew that if we could just get out the door everything would be better. And it was. Once we got to the rink Lexi said,"I like my jeans" and she asked every five minutes when it was her turn to go on the ice. And for someone who didn't want to be in the show, Callie did great when it was her turn to shine.
The rest of our weekend was a little less eventful allowing for several cups of Sunday morning coffee for me and some science investigating for the girls.
We also had a little time for some very colorful manicures.
And finally we spent some time in our "Brier Patch" and I'm looking forward to spending more time there this week. What are you looking forward to this week?
