Luck o' the Irish

I'm not Irish, but I do take Irish step-dancing, and my dance school had a big St. Patrick's Day gala today. We were all really nervous, especially my class because it was our first time performing in front of a big audience, but it went really well! Our teacher said everyone has the Luck o' the Irish today. I know I promised to write in English AND Italian on my blog, but today I'm so tired from the recital that I can't!

After the recital, there was a big buffet of Irish food. My favorite was the Irish soda bread, and shamrock-shaped cookies with green sprinkles!

Home Sick

Oggi sono stata ammalata, e non sono andata a scuola. Nella mattina, mi sentivo malissimo, ma nel pomeriggio, mi sentivo meglio, e potevo giocare un po'. Ho giocato Tic-Tac-Toe con Mamma, e poi, abbiamo guardato "Il Mago di Oz," uno dei miei musicali preferiti!

Today I was sick, and I didn't go to school. In the morning, I felt terrible, but by the afternoon I felt a little better, and I could play a bit. I played Tic-Tac-Toe with Mamma, and then we watched "The Wizard of Oz," one of my favorite movie musicals!

Questa parte del film è meravigliosa - quando Dorothy si rende conto che la casa è il posto migliore nel mondo!

This part of the movie is wonderful - when Dorothy realizes that home is the best place in the world!
