Tiny Dancer

Actually, if you look at these pictures, you'll see Claire is not the tiniest of dancers compared to some of her dance classmates who she towers over. But she's still pretty damn cute.

Dan and I were front and center watching her third-ever dance class with teacher Miss Elizabeth and about 20 other kids at the Borgo School of Dance near our house. As you can see from the pictures, she's got pretty good form -- far better than many of her classmates! (Not that I'm biased.)

Steal a Pencil for Me

Today I watched one of the most touching and heart-wrenching love stories ever, the documentary Steal a Pencil for Me.

The movie chronicles the love and lives of Ina and Jaap, who met in Holland just before they each were sent to a concentration camp, where they fell in love through letters while in the camps. I tend to watch all kind of random documentaries and occasionally find one that I just love for one reason or another. I'm so glad I tossed this into my Netflix queue on a whim. Oh -- and if you subscribe to Netflix, you can watch it through their site.
