Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!

Here's Romy wearing the unbelievably fabulous Dorothy dress my Mum made. She brought it over today and I couldn't get Roo out of it for hours :o) Thanks Mum. You're an absolute star!

We've done quite a lot for the party today actually. Thank goodness! Only one more day to go. Baking tomorrow I think.

Apart from party stuff (which involved art, craft, reading, writing and counting) we spent a lovely hour or so out in the garden lying on a blanket reading to each other. Romy decided to strip off and spray freezing cold water over herself in an effort to make it feel like summer :o) And what a summer it's going to be - my Mum has bought Roo a GIANT paddling pool for her birthday. It has a cover and a filter so you can leave it filled all season. Cool! Can't wait to try it out.

This evening Roo went to her first TKD lesson as a green belt. She was learning how to use a Bo staff and did some two-on-one sparring. Quite scary really as she had a ten and a twelve-year-old girl trying to kick and punch her. She certainly gave back as good as she got though ;o)

I'm just travelling round the blog ring and just had to comment on that beautiful picture.
Her dress and shoes are great! My 7yo dd would just love those. I hope the party goes well; it should as you seem to have put lots of thought and attention into it.
(My dd has her 1st Ju Jitsu grading tomorrow!)
