Dance Recital

YEAH! Our final dance recital for this year! It was so much fun to teach these girls dance. They are such great kids, I love their personalities. Some day's they were a little much, but can you blame them...I am a freakin fun teacher! LOL!

We did 4 dances this time...unfortunately, my husband didn't take pictures of each dance, and the ones he did take, were extremely here are a few I took after the recital.

I wish you could of seen all the costumes...they were super cute! Thanks to my wonderful aunt Melodie...she totally did an awesome job with them. There was a ribbon dress to a tippy tap toe dance, a butterfly dance with wings and a tutu, then a puppy dog dance, and then our uptown girl dance with the red dresses. Way fun!

Preschool Graduation

Amiah didn't graduate this year, she still has one more year of preschool. She still was part of the ceremony!

Each student took a turn and did a song, and an activity in front of the audience.

This is her singing her ABC's, which by the way, she did awesome at!

And this is her leaping like a Frog across the stage! LOL! Too fun!

Sprinkler Time

When we came back from picking up Amiah from preschool, the sprinklers were on. As soon as Aiden saw them, I knew what he was was hot outside, so I for sure let him run in them. He had a blast! Amiah on the other hand, is a little chicken she didn't get in, but she watched from the door, and kept asking Aiden if he was having fun. Once they turned off, it was time to go in, which was fine by Aiden, he was starting to get cold anyways. Here are a few pictures I grabbed before the fun ended! Enjoy!

"Out of Focus"

A week with 3 kids!

This past week I got the opportunity to watch my friend's sweet girl! She is such a character, we had so much fun with her at our house all week.

It was a magical princess week, full of adventures around the house for two 4 year old girls. Aiden tried to fit in as best as he could, he usually ended up being the dragon or the tiger trying to attack the poor princess. They always found a way to defeat the ferocious beast.

I wish I could of had time to take more pictures, it was a crazy week for me as well, from senior shoots and everything else going on with the house.

But here are a few I managed to snap the last day she spent with us!
