Fletcher said the jump jacks are his favorite.

Daddy made up cool games today with our giant kick ball and everyone got a chance!  Good times!

The highlight of the day…our amazing performance…”Be Our Guest”.  Fiona wanted to do this for days now and she roped Ellen into joining her.  They giggled upstairs for an hour practicing. Loved every second of the whole thing!  

Fletcher was a huge fan.  He watched it three times.  He has also made them promise he can be in the next performance!  

Stay well my friends!
