My New Job & Cavalia {in the same post :) }

I have a part-time job!
(actually I have HAD a job since the beginning a February :)

A friend of mine told me about an opening, and after being a stay-at-home Mom for 19 years :)
I applied, and now work at Junior Achievement

I LOVE it!
  It is like being paid to chaperone a field trip.  Junior Achievement was always one of my favorite field trips that my boys' took in 5th grade and middle school
 I work 1 to 3 days a week and the hours are perfect to be home in time to pick up the boys from school and get Lucy from the bus
I am so grateful for this opportunity

Last week JA received tickets to Cavalia, an equestrian and performing arts show and they offered employees the tickets!  
So, Saturday night we went!

Here is how the website describes the show...

"Cavalia is a fresh mix of equestrian and performing arts, multimedia and special effects. Conceived by Normand Latourelle and often labelled an equestrian ballet, Cavalia is a spectacular and moving tribute to the relationship between men and horses throughout history, a dream of freedom, cooperation and harmony. In a fairy tale setting filled with poetry and emotion, the show innovatively integrates acrobatics, dance, aerial stunts, live music and equestrian arts. Under the White Big Top, a 50-metre stage permits the horses to express themselves in all their splendour, nobility and strength, often completely free."

We loved the show....the music was fantastic, and the performers talented
  We would not  have chosen to go had we not been given the tickets, but we are so happy we were able to see this great show.
We all left in awe of what amazing beautiful creatures horeses are!

    I tried to get Kelly to go this show when it was here in Denver a couple of years ago.
    It looks amazing! Glad you had the opportunity to see it.

  6. Oh Dawn. . .how splendid for all of you!
    "In a fairytale setting filled with poetry" - that line alone would send me to the moon. I bet it was a dream! You were blessed with goodness.

  11. I came to your blog from Lettered Cottage today and was just strolling through it and saw this post. A friend of mine recently blogged about her opportunity to photograph Cavalia Odysseo and I thought you may like to see the photos since you enjoyed it so much. My friend's passions are horses and photography.

    Loved Lucy's video on The Lettered Cottage! We also went and watched some on her You Tube sight. What a sweetie!
