You are looking at a dance school drop out. My heart still speeds up when I think about it. I am a finisher. When I start something...I WILL finish it! The idea that Presley just was not at all feeling something she had committed to was a big struggle for me. But after some talking & praying & talking some more, us girls decided we would try again next year if she wanted to. Its a real bummer because the recital is in 2 months, the costume is hanging upside down in her closet getting fluffier by the second. So I will doll her up & take her picture in that dang costume & try to convince her she wants to be a ballerina for halloween. She is 4. She has a lot on her plate as it is with school & therapy. I didn't want something that was & could be fun again to become a big deal. So we bid farewell to the tap shoes & ballet slippers for a spell. She still dances at home every single second of the day though. & that makes me smile. Also...I blame it all on not getting into Ms. Kirsten's class!
This picture is killing me! I swear she is holding an itty bitty flower in her fingers!
Having family near by (5 hour drive) has been such a huge blessing. The children have really grown close to Brad, Kalen & Norah & are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby cousin any day now. We have been able to spend holidays & long weekends together. Norah runs to me & she walks Tre around with her little fingers wrapped tight around Tre's fingers. She giggles & giggles at this. Easter we were able to head to D to celebrate Easter. The children had an Easter egg hunt, we had brunch with ham, omelets, fruit, a whole bunch of other treats and I had made cinnamon roll casserole & a lemon blueberry bundt cake that Rod & I finished off on the way back home. It was conference weekend which made it even more special. What better weekend to hear council from our Father in Heaven through his Prophet than that of the weekend we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord & Savior?!
