I used to be excited for school to end...

(flowers from one of my dance students)

but quite frankly i don't want it to end.
i don't want to stop teaching.
my students laughed at me when i told them i want to teach year round.

on the bright side,
i'm getting tons of treats from my high school students and my dance students.
the sugar should at least hold me over till july...
check back with me then.

out of retirement

(in our lovely hip hop costumes.)

because of these ladies,
i'm out of retirement and back into dance.
jaleah, emily, and i have been buddies since way back when and we keep in contact through our out-of-control adult dance class. wahoo!
we had a dance performance this past weekend that kicked our out-of-shape booties.
but not too shabby for some returning vets!

and what's even better, after the recital, jake still claimed me as his wife. (phew)
looking forward to next year ladies...

from the right to the left

well. i made it!
i'm a college grad!

hard to believe this has been my life for the past 4 years.
homework, tests, papers, labs, books...

but i couldn't have done with out the support of jake,

jake's family,

and my family.

so thrilled that some could make it
and to my grad party.
love you all.
(i was one of those goobers who waved at her family during the whole ceremony.)

feels so good to say,
i'm done!
and i'm legit.
don't mess.
