Kindergarten Music Program

The end of the year, always brings all the fun end of year activities and programs out.  Eli's Kindergarten program, Kinderific, was the kickstart to our end of year activities.  It was exactly what you would expect a kindergarten music program to be.  Totally cheesy, a total riot, incredibly tone deaf, and adorably cute.  It was so cute to watch those kids up there.  They were all having so much fun and worked so hard.  You could tell they just loved some of the songs they were singing.  I was just cracking up through half of it because it was so cheesy and cute.  But It was so fun to watch Eli.  And so fun to see all the kids' personalities when they get up to perform for their parents and grandparents.  There's really not much more to say on was just cute:)  Eli is in a red shirt if you are having a hard time finding him......
Here's to the start of many many more cheesy school music programs to come!

Tiny Dancer

It is so fun to watch your kids do something they love.  And to watch them grow and change and get better at what they love.  For miss K, it's dance.  She loves it.  If you had seen her dance two years ago, you certainly would have wondered if that was true or not:)  But she has come a long way, and she does such a great job dancing!  May always marks the end of the year recital for her so she can show off all her dance skills.  That means we have been busy with all things dance:)  It started in April when we got to have a parent watch day and got to see what they've been working on.  And they tried on their costumes.  This is always fun for girl is not necessarily a girly girl, but she sure loves dressing up for dance recitals!

 Parker apparently loves looking at himself, because instead of watching his sister dance, he was watching himself in the mirror and giving himself lots of loves.  Weirdo:)

 After months of work, it's time for the show!  K loves dancing on the "big stage"  And I sure love watching her!  She has just blossomed and lights up when she's up there.  Preschool recitals can be a little painful because a good majority of the kids have no idea what they are doing:), but they are all so cute regardless!!

 And after the big show.....K with her bff Grace.  They weren't in the same classes this year, which was very sad for me, and I know K missed her, but she sure stepped out being without friends this year.  And, they were still open for posing for pictures for us in their cute little costumes:)
 And some of her biggest fans......I have a feeling they will have a lifetime of dance recitals in their future.  And she's going to have her share of sporting events:)

K is 5

Well, it's been a while, so I thought I might drop in a do a little bloggy blog.  Maybe I will go back someday and catch up on all the fun stuff I have pictures of before this date, but probably not:)  I don't get my big camera out as much anymore.  Part of it is because we spend a lot of time at home.  Hopefully one of these days soon spring will come and stick around and we can get out more and I will have more excuses to catch my kids being kids!!

For now, you get to hear about my sweet girl.  She had a birthday was back in January.  She is five.  And it blows my mind.  How is she five?!? I know I will feel this way every year, but seriously, where did the last five years go??  This year we kept her party low key.  She's a pretty quiet girl, and doesn't have a ton of friends that we hang out with super often.  So I made the executive mama decision that for her "friend" party, we were just going to take her two bffs to get their fingers and toes painted and get some ice cream.  Super easy on my part.  But so much fun!  The girls had a blast.  And they thought it was so cool to have someone (other than a mom) paint their nails:)  The girls were so cute and were cracking me up.

After this we got some ice cream.  I have a few pictures of that too, but they are on my phone and I'm too lazy to email them to's a miracle I even got this one up.  I'm so thankful for this sweet girl in my life.  Especially amongst all the boys!  Can't imagine my life without her and I love seeing her grow up into the little lady she is becoming.  And I'm so thankful for fabulous friends for her to go through life with.  Happy 5th birthday doodle bug!!
