Some major happenings in these past two months:
*We registered for Kindergarten
*Avery lost her first tooth
*The girls actually like swim lessons this year (hahaha).
*Aubrey has come a long way in learning how to ride her big girl bike (no training wheels). We realize a lot of her fear had to do with her not being able to touch the ground. With a few more inches added on recently, she has more confidence and now she would love to ride her bike all night long if she could!
Dance: The girls both enjoyed another two months of learning ballet and tap. They learned several routines and put on an adorable dance recital for mom and dad with their class. They danced to a song from the show "Cats," hence they all dressed as cats. Thanks to the kids sweet friends, Kate and Ellie, they were well prepared with cat masks from a Christmas gift. It was perfect. It was super adorable from beginning to end.
Visit with Nana and Grandpa: We had a fun week visiting, most notably having a great time at the Rodeo. This is a yearly tradition filled with good memories, good food and just plain fun! Avery was very brave and was willing to try "mutton busting." For those who were not born and raised a Texan, this is a wildly scary activity where a kid holds for dear life onto a sheep who runs from one end of the corral to the other end. Sheep can be pretty unpredictable and give the kids quite a ride. I was praying the whole time that she wouldn't break anything or end up with a concussion! She surprised us all and tied for first place with a score of 95!!! Aubrey was pretty thrilled that she did not weigh enough to qualify because she had absolute zero interest in getting bucked off a sheep!
School Picture Day: All dressed up for school pictures! I have to admit, they are pretty darn cute!
Sleepover night with Tessa!
Easter Fun and Visit with the Family: The girls enjoyed a lot of spring festival/Easter activities this year. We also had a visit with the family, which included a special guest-Aaliyah (so excited she could be here!). It is so nice getting to see Brian more now that he is only 6 hours away. We enjoyed an adult night out at Top Golf one night and on Saturday we enjoyed eating some delicious food prepared by everyone, most notably some great smoked food from Jason.
Visit with Nana and Grandpa: We got a double visit from Nana and Grandpa with double the fun! One of the highlights was going to Moody Gardens for the day and going to a movie (and mom and dad got a date night!).
See you next month!
