We’ve had a great stay here. The weather has, for the most part, been sunny and beautiful. Apple trees, spring flowers and now lilacs are blooming everywhere and help to make a stroll on the walking paths a lovely experience.

We arrived last Thursday on the 30th just in time to see Marcus perform an Indian dance with his class at a local park.
He is also taking piano lessons and I’m suprised at how well he does for having taken lessons for only several months. Baseball is another activity Marcus is enjoying this spring along with sharpening his skills at “arm farting”…oh, to be
almost nine again!

I was also surprised at the progress Lidia has made with violin since last November. Her hard work (and a new violin) has really paid off and I loved listening to her practice. I also had the chance to sit in on her Irish dance lesson. What a workout! Lydia’s tenacity in working towards a goal will be a great asset to her in life.

Friday night we attended Bernie’s dance recital and I realized again what a natural performer she is. One would think she had been raised in front of a camera…so comfortable and completely at ease in front of that big audience! We
celebrated her seventh birthday on Saturday, the 9th.

Also on Saturday we were treated to the musical “Oliver” performed by Georgie’s middle school. Georgie played bass in
the pit band and I had a great view of her during the performance. They all did a splendid job and I enjoyed it very much. Georgie gives up her room to her grandparents when we visit and sleeps on the floor of the “play” room and we appreciate her sacrifice. I’ve also loved hearing her practice the cello while here.

My big problem has been my camera which isn’t focusing properly. I expect there is a setting that needs adjustment
but haven’t found it yet. What a bummah!

  3. Hello, very interesting article. I completely agree. I think that establishing relationship with prospective and

    existing customers is a very important part of every business. Advertising plays a great role in the success or failure

    most of times. Thank you. I read the article with pleasure.
