I realize that not just my family reads this blog. In fact, most of my readers are not my family. What you need to know about me – for my non-family friends – is that I am horrible at writing them and keeping them up to date. Communication may not be my strong point! So for the lack of emails and pictures, my guilt finally overwhelms me and I dedicate a blog post to filling them in – for the rest of you…well hopefully you’ll enjoy a few pictures of cute kids too. 🙂Haley started dance last summer. I thought she would like it – but I had no idea how good she would be at it! She has an amazing memory – which comes from my husband. (He can remember his locker combos all the way back to Junior High School.) She has practice every week and is always excited to go! It is a combo class of ballet and tap.
The dance recital is coming up (the Wizard of Oz). They had practices every single day this week (and next week too). This weekend was pictures! It was the first time I’ve let her put on her dance costume since bringing it home. (She is a messy messy little girl and it is an expensive outfit!)
As a fun little treat I took her to get her nails painted (fingers and toes) this morning. I wanted it to be something a little extra special. It only cost $7 and the lady even put a couple little flower on her nails! She was thrilled!
Kyle started Karate last weekend. After only two years of asking, I finally signed him up. There are already benefits – he has to concentrate, try his best, practice, listen, etc. etc. He is very happy in his Karate uniform!
Both the older kids have been in swimming lessons since the beginning of April. Yes – outdoors. It is nice enough here 🙂
Haley will put her face in the water without too much hesitation. She wants to go each weekend! This is a huge improvement over last summer when she spent most of her time protesting!
Last summer Kyle got over his fear of the water….but his form was a little lacking. So he is working on that mostly. I have no idea what the strokes and techniques are that he is learning – but he’s doing well and improving quickly!
And Taylor? Well he’s too little to really be in anything yet. And that ends my family briefing! 😉
