Two weeks ago was the highly anticipated parent observation day at dance. Only three times per year are parents granted permission to come in and observe the progress of these little tappers/ballerinas. Love watching them show off their new skills! After class the girls were presented with trophies honoring all the progress made during the year. Teagan was SO excited to have her own piece of bling to proudly display on her "special shelf" in her bedroom.
While dance is done for the season, we're already thinking about next year. Parker's teacher, Miss V, has been chatting with me about having Parker dance competitively as she thinks she's ready based on her skill set. Miss V grew up at DSD, dancing since she was P's age, and now teaches. Both of her daughters dance competitively and P is BFFs with her youngest.
The time commitment is intense though, especially for a five year old. 8 hours per week during the summer and six per week during the school year. Geez. So to compromise for now we're looking at doing half the commitment. Three hours per week during the school year for jazz, tap and hip hop, two recitals and two regionals. Teagan will still take one class of tap/tumbling. I'm looking forward to the new classes, costumes, and lasting memories!
Parker is ready for it. Right girl?!
Parker killed it this season. Endless goals, great defense, crazy hustle...major improvements from last fall. Soccer will remain on our schedule right along with dance.
No matter what sport, Emerson will be there to cheer her biggies on! Though in reality, she loathes being stuck on the soccer field for 2 1/2 hours. All she wants to do is walk all over the field--perhaps trying to keep up with P & T--but that's not the best idea unless she wants to become a human soccer ball.
My sister had her baby! My sister had her baby! So we made a quick trip to OH to meet the little guy. I don't have any pics as he was in the NICU but soon enough. What I do have though is a group pic with a scowling Parker. This mean mom couldn't locate the hospital play area and that + lack of sleep = angry face.
Baby Jack was born in an OSU hospital and the decor was spot on. Go Bucks! Look at Emerson imitating Brutus. I mean, it's in her blood after all.
Back in our state we've spent the majority of our weekends hanging out around the house. For the most obvious reason--the pool-- but also because Emerson is an epic snoozer. Girl will sleep, no joke, from about 7pm until we have to wake her at 4pm. That is 21 hours! TWENTY ONE HOURS! Every single weekend. It is insane.
We take wagon rides around the sub.
And we act super cute :)
Teagan also acts super cute when she picks out her own outfits. And when she says things like, "I like Daddy's car more than yours because Daddy drives a Cat-illac and I love cats." This kid!
Up next: recap of Parker's preschool gradation, the girls dance recital, and our new floors! The living room and dining room are completely done :)
