Today is K's first day at her new job! It's at a wonderful juice bar/health food place about 10 minutes away. She'd frequented the one near her school, fell in love with the place, and loved most of the menu - including several smoothies and lunch plates. I'll admit, the food is awesome. Another one just opened closer to home. She'll have paid training all summer, then work 4 or 5 days a week after school and on weekends. She gets free meals and drinks - and tips! She's ready to start saving for a car.
The hotel was nice. W spent most of the time in the outdoor pool (thankfully we had great weather). K brought one of her best friends and my mom joined us as well! Since we didn't do a Nationals this summer, the 3-day dance challenge was a perfect substitute.
The rest of J's August consists of: her birthday, an orthodontist appointment, a St. Jude's fundraiser, a bunch of new choreography, and her dance orientation for high school. W has camp til Aug 20th then we'll be finishing up any leftover 3rd grade stuff. And K will be working and getting ready for her senior year.
Life is so good.
