Ballet Recital

Paige started her first year of ballet this January at a dance studio that is right across the street from our house. For the end of the year performance she was a songbird in the company's production of Sleeping Beauty. Her class's appearance lasted about 3 minutes out of 120, but it was so worth sitting through to see her up on there having fun and trying her best.

The big day. "I have never looked more beautiful!"

If you are new at this (like I am), DO NOT forget flowers. If they hadn't been selling them for $5 in the lobby we would have had a disaster on our hands.
Good Job, Paige!

the River

I took the girls to meet up with my parents and 2 of my sisters and their families earlier this month for a week at the Colorado River. We've been going there since I was Paige's age and it's still just as fun as it was then. Too bad I didn't take more pictures. Thank you Honey and Papa for a great time, as always!

Claire loved riding the "bug".

A tradition. One last picture before we head home.

Crazy Hair Day

During Paige's last week of school they had a crazy hair day. Paige was excited to have lots of little pony tails all over her head and glitter in her hair. Though I think her cousin might win the prize for craziest hair. In Paige's words, "nice job on the hair, Aunt Noelle!".

Preschool Graduation

Paige and her cousin Anna graduated from their first year of preschool last week. They sang songs, had a slideshow of their year in the classroom, and walked down the red carpet to get their diplomas as their names were called. Then they threw their caps in the air for the finale.Paige loved her first year at Kids Village and is excited to go back again next year. In fact, I think she'd go back right now if she could. I love that Paige's first experiences with school have been positive and that she's so excited about learning.

This is our attempt at a family picture. Obviously no one was cooperating, and the camera caught me mid eye-roll. Nice.
