St Patrick's Day

Happy St Patrick's Day!

I have never celebrated St Patrick's Day in my life - it's not a big thing in Australia, but this year my girls are dancing in a big Seniors Concert in the city, and I thought it would be fun to give their Irish Dancing teacher a St Patrick's Day card. So we made this for her.

Am hoping the day will go okay - first the night before we need to curl the hair, then leave home early to travel by train and then walk (carrying two heavy costumes), then put on makeup, fix the hair, calm the nerves and then ... hopefully ... the girls can dance calmly onto the stage. They have never performed in front of such a large audience. But we have told them that they will all be elderly people, and even if they made a mistake the audience will love them - they just love to see little girls dancing and looking cute on stage!

Before that we are REALLY hoping that the hard (tap) shoes we ordered 10 days ago on ebay will actually show up tomorrow in time for the concert on Tuesday. If not, poor Emily will have to dance in her school shoes! Not happy Jan.

So think of us, on Tuesday! I'll let you know how it goes!
