Oh Lydia...

The setting for Kilroy Was Here (our homeschool musical) is a New York USO club in 1942.  Naturally, there's dancing.  For one of the songs, several of the older kids waltz in boy-girl couples, while the younger girls simply dance with each other.  However, we have an odd number of younger girls.  Our director, Char, knowing Lydia's sparkling personality and adventurous spirit, decided she'd have Lydia dance with one of the younger boys.  So, this is a quick shot I got when Peter first pulled her out onto the dance floor.  Well, it looks like Lydia is pulling Peter, but he does ask her to dance.  (The pic is a bit blurry, but I just LOVE it.)

They handled it quite well--especially with everyone watching.

BTW, Peter is such a nice boy.  Our families have been friends for years.  He's got two older sisters, who,  I'm sure, lovingly teased him as much as Emma teased Lydia (which I think she enjoyed very much).  That's what big sisters are for.

Lydia's been talking about this pairing up non-stop since yesterday afternoon.  (Yes, it makes me a little nervous.)  

Here we go.


  1. How old is Lydia? She's super cute, love the smile..

  2. She's all of seven, but going on eighteen some days, I swear. *sigh*

    Thanks. = )
