So I predict that Betty will choose to be with Gio. I know she loved Henry, but as awful as Charlie was to her, I can't see Betty choosing to share a life with her. I also think the show would end if Betty left Mode. Too much is riding on all the changes at the magazine, and she's Christine's only support, really. I bet Daniel is going to start his own magazine and Betty will get an even better position being his assistant and I bet he asks her to write for his magazine. I would also like to see the braces come off. I can handle the bushy hair, really, I can. But it's been two seasons of braces. Take them off!!! What I actually think would be really great, is if Betty went to Italy with Gio and got an Italian makeover. Not that she needs to go all Mode-girl fashionista, but at least they could change it up. Claire told her she needed to take risks in all areas of her life, and I think it would be great if Betty took a risk with her style. It would be fun to see Betty's interpretation of Italian fashion. I can't wait til the fall!!!

Stacy, Nikki, Hollie and Emily
So the morning started off right, I was up in time to make sure everything I needed was ready to go. I got showered and dressed, Monica up and dressed with a little breakfast, and walked out the door right when I planned! So I get in the truck, since Ryan took my car to drill this weekend, and it wouldn't start! It only took a few tries before I got it going and then it was really jerky and shaky. NOOO!! I was starting to panic at this point. I knew the car had problems, but this morning?! Are you serious?!
So I finally pulled up to Charles Piano where the recital was scheduled and EVERYONE was already there waiting. My students' moms ROCK! I was only a couple minutes late and they were all there. Then to top off the stress I was already feeling not being able to be early, no one was there to open the store. Now I'm ready to cry, because I'm pregnant and I do that. But I didn't. We waited, and fretted a bit, and then luckily a teacher came in and was able to open the doors. THANK GOODNESS! Because I was about to reschedule the recital.
Anyways, we walked in and got the recital going and I couldn't be more proud as a teacher! Everyone made it through their songs, and it was wonderful! Now, I had practiced what I was going to say at the end of the recital ahead of time, because last time I got teary and my voice cracked. And everytime I thought about my students, I was proud and honored but I didn't get emotional. So I go in today thinking "I'm good...not gonna cry...I feel strong!" YEAH RIGHT! I was crying before the last song was even played! I was just so overcome with how hard everyone worked to get there and I'm losing a few students this summer who are moving and I am really going to miss them! But I recovered, and all was well. THEN, to add another bright note, they told me I didn't have to pay to rent the space since they didn't give me the code that would have gotten us in and started. SaWEET!
Next recital, I won't be pregnant, so I plan on proving I can wear mascara and not worry about it running!
So these are my students. Back row: Jessica, Andy, Chantelle, Mary, me, Justine, Melissa and Holly. And the front row are: Caleb, Jacob, Crystelle, Grace, and Traekon. And somewhere in there is a little girl who asks for piano lessons so she can get stickers!
