wrapping up the school year!

Emma has a big dance recital every year at the end of the school year. This year she was in 5 numbers and had 3 different costumes. It is always a fabulous production and a very long week. We had dance 7 out of 8 days this last week. Lots of hair and make up to do every day. But it was a huge success and she had a lot of fun!!
Our friends Canon and Elsie came to watch dress rehearsal mid-week.
We are thankful for our dance school - great teachers, students and parents! Emma has loved her classes.Emma also wrapped up her final year at King's Way. We had a fun party with her class that she has loved. She was very tearful when I picked her up from school on Friday. Even though she loves her school very much, she is looking ahead to a new adventure!

Cody also had a year-end party this week out at a park. We had great weather and the kids had a fun time. They played kickball with pools for the bases.
They then had a water gun battle with boys vs. girls. The teachers even got in on the battle. It was fun to watch from a distance!

We are so thankful to be winding down a great school year. We love summer vacation!! This year we are looking forward to spending time with my brother before he leaves for Laos next month.

Meleea -

Congrats to the kids. Looks like you all have been really busy lately, you might need the summer to recoup.

What is your brother going to Laos for? I have read it a couple of times on your blog.
