21June2014 ~ L all ready for dress rehearsal
Last weekend was "dance recital" weekend.  L had dance rehearsal on Saturday and her show on Sunday.  She loved every moment.  Every where we looked there were little girls with make up on.  L wanted me to put some on, but she knew I won't do it.  She was still adorable.

It's a production.  Saturday was full dress rehearsal and photos.  Sunday was the recital.  There was 60 acts.  L was number 9.  I don't know if we would have lasted the whole show.

L was not shy at all about getting her photos taken.   She loves the stage.   We've told her she could continue with the performing arts, but she also had a do a team sport.  Of course, the sports she listed was not much of a team sport…swimming and gymnastics.  22June2014 ~ Daddy and his girls

Alexa was good sport the whole weekend.  She had her moments, but for the most part was well behave.  During L's performance, Alexa kept pointing to the stage and yelling, …


19June2014 ~ L and A on L's last day of school.
L's last day of school ended with a celebration.  The kindergarten class of 2026 at Barbieri each walked across the stage and then sang four songs.    L has done a wonderful job this year and we're so proud of her.  Her Spanish is getting better each day and she is even reading in Spanish.  

L walking across to shake her teacher's hand.  Can you kind of see the smile on her face?!?  She also picked at the dress.

Some of the kids.  There are 5 K classes at Barbieri with 24 kids in each class.  I can't imagine a graduating class of 1000.

L in September and on her last day.  She's big and strong…She's at the 79 percentile for her height and weight for her age group. 

She was so happy Dave and I could make it to her ceremony.

Birthday Girl

The birthday girl...the big 6!

L has wanted a Barbie cake for a couple of years.  I tried to find an Elsa doll to make a Frozen cake, but they were out at three stores.   The cake was easier to make than I had thought.  

L also wanted a surprise party. We down played her birthday in the morning. I did fill her room with balloons for when she woke up.  She woke up before 6am and came into our room saying, "I'm six!"   We threw her a family surprise party in the evening.  Dave picked the girls up and blind folded L's eye.  She was so happy, smiling from ear to ear.  

The birthday girl wanted hot dogs for dinner.
