Clickety Clack

Sam has just loved going to dance class over the past few months.  There has only been one time where he said he didn't want to go and that was because someone told him that dancing is only for girls.  I asked him if he liked dancing and he told me that he did.  After convincing him that if it is what he liked to do, then that is all that matters, we had no further problems.
When we went to the Florida Keys just before Christmas last year, Samuel was quite upset that he would miss a dance class.  He wanted to drive back home, take the class and then drive back to the Keys.........didn't happen!!
If there was a week cancelled because of a holiday or his instructor was sick, he insisted that I check the website and call the school!!
All the hard work of Ms. Rhonda (his instructor), his classmates, and Sam, came to a end for this school year on Sunday.  
Sam was in his very first recital.

and especially, Ms. Rhonda
 Sam loves his "clickety clack" shoes!!

Relaxing, Smart Farts & the Cutest Grandbaby in the World

Our family has been going
For those who may have never heard this Australian phrase before, it means we have been really, really, really, really, really busy.
Our re-skinning business is in full swing for the season.
Frozen custard shops are a delicious business to have, but takes time and energy.
Home schooling and running to therapies.
A brand new grand baby and helping the new little family to move.
Law firm stuff.....
family stuff......
church stuff.....
getting sick.......
Life just gets hectic sometimes and it all tires you out.
I know everyone has been there at times.
Not just tired, but bone weary tired.
The kind that you seem to never be able to get enough hours sleep to fight it off.
So, we decided to go away for a few nights.
We didn't go far.
Just over the bay to Clearwater.
 This is the view from our hotel window.
Jim took the photos on his phone and then sent them to family.
That is when the smart fart side of the Purdy sense of humor started to rear its ugly head.
 Jessica sent her view from the counter of the Frozen Custard shop.
Stop on by and pay her a visit!!!  It is perfect weather for some frozen custard!!!
Jim's parents happen to be driving back to Rapid City, South Dakota from Salt Lake City, Utah.  While I do like the rolling plains..........
I think I will stick to our view at the moment.
I also need to add another view that is pretty relaxing and causes the stress to melt away.
