The Stuttgart Ballet (and now we know how to pronounce Onegin)

This weekend we're flying to Germany. Thanks to Ryanair's £5 flights, that's about $64 for the four of us roundtrip. We couldn't eat in a pub for $64. All right, there's some fine print and actual size may vary bullshit that goes along with the flight, but it's still amazingly cheap.

We're going to watch our friend's daughter, Daisy, dance in a production of Onegin with the Stuttgart Ballet. All of us are excited, but when Ella heard the news that we were going, she danced around the flat, leaping and pirouetting. I overheard her on Skype telling a pal that she was going to watch her friend, who's a ballerina, dance -- (Ella's never met Daisy). I think it will be a magical evening for our little girl. 

Most of Brenna's and my memories of Daisy are from when she was three years old. I can only try to imagine what it must feel like for Daisy's parents to watch her perform. My god, life moves at a blinding pace.

Ella, I hope that you have a great trip, filled with tippy toes and tutus.

I am sure you will be dancing for months after seeing Daisy. You can make tutusfor all your stuffed friends and have a full
ballett troop with you as the star, naturally. I am so glad all your family is getting to go. Enjoy the trip and email me and tell me all about it.
Love you soooo much,
Nana June.

Yes life does move at a blinding pace. I am watching two of my grandchildren grow up on the web. I am sad that I cannot see them in person as often as I wish, but what a blessing technology is. I can see them on a screen and give them very long distance hugs.
Would this have been possible even 10 years ago?

So, how DO you pronounce "Onegin"?

Also, FYI, this weekend Prairie Home Companion featured a singer described as "a treasure of Scotland" named Jean Redpath. Didn't know "Redpath" was scottish!
