Dress Rehearsal

It was that time of year for the girls' dance recital (I so love this). But before the big recital, we first went through dress rehearsal.  Isn't Abbey beautiful!


Then it was time for the actual rehearsal.  Here is Abbey ready to start...and this is about as far as she got.  The music started and she immediately looked down, ran over to me, and refused to dance.  Exact same thing that happened last year!  To be fair, they hold the rehearsal at the dance class location and the parents come in and sit about 2 feet from where they dance, so it is a bit intense with everyone right there staring at them.  But still, she is the only one who didn't dance and of course that led me to worry about the actual recital coming up and how she would do!

After it was over though, she was all smiles again with her friends.

Next day was Juju's turn!

What a cutie pie!

Juliette did fairly well in her rehearsal.  She was a bit distracted by everyone, but when she did concentrate, she did really well.  I then worried about her as well...not that she wouldn't dance, but that she would be so ditracted by the audience that she wouldn't follow along with the routine. 

Here is her class.

Wow, it has been a long time! We have been busy, but a bit busier than normal. We sold our house and bought a new one! It is only 2 miles away from our old house, but it is a lot bigger and closer to school, so we are excited. More on that to follow, but that is at least a small explanation of my lack of blogging lately.

Anyway, let's go back to April to catch up. Domi and I threw a bridal shower for Theresa!  Several of her friends and family flew in for the weekend and we had a great time.  Here is the towel cake we made for her - I thought it turned out cute!

The spread of delicious food!

And gourmet cupcakes.

We played several fun games too.  Here is a shot of the group playing games.

And then of course presents!

It was a very fun shower.  By now, the wedding is only a few weeks away!  We can't wait!

In other updates, Ben got a chance to read to Abbey's class!

And then we had the girls' Sunday School graduation.  It was very cute and they sang a few songs.  Unfortunately, I was not in a good spot to get pictures, but they did great, trust me!

And here's to a fantastic Sunday School teacher!
