Great Choreography

The incredible variety of movement within the
human body. We are fearfully and wonderfully
made by an artistic Creator.
My favorite pieces of choreography.
(This post will be occasionally updated.)

"Sweet Dreams" choreography by Mandy Moore.

"Our Favorite Son" from Will Rogers Follies,
choreographed by Tommy Tune. I learned this
dance when I performed this show for Fullerton
Civic Light Opera in 2001. What a blast!

Cyd Charisse & Gene Kelly in "Singing In The Rain"

These girls are deaf...and totally stunning.

7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Barn Dance

Of course I have to include the Treadmill Dance.

Michael Jackson, 1995 MTV VMAs

Katie & Josh in "No Air". Choreography by Tabitha & Napolean.


Oksana is my niece. She will be 16 next month and is beautiful. My heart's desire for her is that she will settle for nothing less than holiness and will discover her true beauty in the Lord. She has been staying with us for about 2 weeks this summer and we are hoping to have her with us for as much of the summer as possible. Please pray that we will be able to reach her heart and live our lives as an example of godliness and purity. And pray that God's will will be done in our home regarding our involvement with her. We are willing to have her live with us permanently. This, of course, would require a major life change (particularly for me) as I would insist on home schooling her.

Koop Island Blues

My latest favorite bit of choreography...again Mia Michaels shows her genius.

I think the piece should be renamed "Derriere".

Boys' Birthday Party

We spent Saturday morning at Old Poway Park celebrating the boys' birthdays. Brandon turned 5 last month and Silas will be 4 next month. Old Poway Park has a train that runs on the weekends. It is a really quaint and peaceful place. The Del Bono's and Mellor's joined our family (they practically are family to us) and we had a sweet celebration of my two little angels. As I was setting up for the party, it began to rain...yikes! But cleared up just in time for the guests to arrive. The weather was beautiful and perfect. God is good! Here, Silas is decked out in his Armor of God and Brandon is enjoying a birthday cupcake.
