It's time to do a dancey-dance...

3 weeks ago Ava started dance class. She is taking a combination of tap and ballet, which is what all of the little ones take. I have been looking for something for her to do and this is right up here alley. She was so disappointed when cheerleading camp was cancelled over the summer, so she was extra jazzed about dance class. Not to mention that two of her friends, Jenna and Lindsey, are in class with her. They meet once a week for a 45 minute lesson and at the end of the year, there will be a recital. Adorable. So much fun to watch! Love it!

I stand at the door with Harrison and watch my baby girl through the window. I know that it is early in, but I hope she has more grace then I do!

(The word Dancey-Dance comes from Yo Gabba Gabba just in case you were wondering.) Also, these are not great pics, but I didn't take the bog camera. Ava is wearing the pink tutu. The bandages on her arm are from the 5 shots she got that day!

Here is what 4 looks like:

  • It is still as dramatic as the day is long.

  • It is excited for school and especially recess.

  • It is making new friends and playing very hard.

  • It is not eating lunch at school and then clearing us out of house and home after school.

  • It is whiny and at times, unbearable.

  • It can be cuddly and oh so sweet.

  • It is a sponge soaking up all of the new things coming her way.

  • It is giggly and it has no concept of an inside voice.

  • It is loved.
