Grace and I are heading to Washington DC for the Southern Regional Irish Dance Championships (Oireachtas). It will just be the two of us as Joseph turns four next month and will do just fine with Bill and the rest of his siblings looking after him (sniff sniff). We are staying in Maryland across the Potomac from Alexandria at a really cool hotel--very rare for us to stay at a hotel that isn't a Hampton Inn. ;)
Prayers appreciated for safe travel (no body scan or pat down, please!!!) and a fun, relaxing time with our Irish dance family!
Back after the week-end with lotsa pictures....
Meanwhile, here's a picture of the small, close-knit group taken this past week-end at the dress rehearsal. Grace is in the front row, second from left... :)
Our parish had its annual spring festival last week-end and Grace waited in line for over an hour in the Texas heat to try bungee jumping for the first time. Of course, she did it in a dress! But modestly, I must say! :)
OH, and she said it was worth the bit of sunburn she had the next day! ;)
