To Be Happy One Must Find


June 2019
Marks many special moments beginning with my oldest
grandchild's high school graduation.



He'll be off to the United States Air Force in September.



Another dance recital for Karina!
She received her five year trophy as well this year.

From: Hello My Name Is: DANCE



From the production
Oliver

"Too be happy, one must find one's bliss."
Gloria Vanderbilt



It was the first week of Cousin Extravaganza! 
Lyra and Karina being silly!

"We are not put on this earth to see through one another.
We are put on this earth to see one another through."
Gloria Vanderbilt

Lions and tigers and dinosaurs!



One day was reserved for The Science Museum in 
St. Paul, Minnesota.


"I believe there is an impulse in each of us
 to make our own personal and individual mark
on the world around us."
Gloria Vanderbilt




"That is the best to laugh with someone
because you both think the same things are funny."
Gloria Vanderbilt




The world is your stage so go forth and make your mark.


The News Crew!




"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
Carl Sagan



"It's love that makes the world go round."
W. S. Gilbert

We are not made to be alone.
Except for those necessary quiet moments 
we spend just being by ourselves.
Reflecting.




Besides Oliver Karina was the sweetest mouse ever in
Cinderella 


My daughter could only spend a little over a week with us
while Lyra gets to spend the entire month with visits to see two other grandmas. 
It's wonderful to be blessed with family.


"The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot
help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life,
of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day."
Albert Einstein




"March out of the common line;
make bold steps ahead and dance to the tune of a sweeter,
better and nicer tone of your own music. March out of the tiny box!
