Dance Recitals

Posting the spring concert and graduation pictures reminded me that the girls had their dance recitals, and I hadn't posted any pictures from them!

They had a big performance at the Roseau auditorium, but I didn't get to see much of it because I was back stage with Madelynn.  I was afraid that she was going to bolt, so I kept a very close eye on her. 

After days of refusing to go on stage (at the nursing home performances and the dress rehearsals, Mady decided to actually dance at the recitals.  I was so proud.

 Molly did wonderfully, as always.  That girl can dance!  She was the youngest member of her group (ages 9-13 or 14) and the only one in third grade.  She did more than keep up with the older girls. 

It was wonderful and they did a great job, but I am so glad it's over! 

End of the School Year

It's almost here: the end of the school year.  I am so excited for summer that I could almost burst.  We've had our spring concerts and kindergarten graduation.  Now we just need to get through the pesky last days and we'll be free to enjoy the summer vacation.

Molly's spring concert.  The photo is a little fuzzy, but Micah took it. 

This is a picture of Micah taking the picture posted above.  He also took some very nice pictures of fields and ditches on the way home from the concert.  I think I'm going to have to get that kid his own camera.

As a way to try summer on for size, I think we are going to sleep in a tent on our trampoline tonight.  The kids will think it's great fun and I won't get a sore back from the hard ground.
