She Thinks She Can Dance!

Today was Ryan's dress rehearsal for dance class! I don't expect anyone other than my mom, sister and Jac to watch the videos, but if you want to, feel free!!

Ryan really enjoyed this year with Miss Charity and all her little friends!

At least she can leap!!!

She's on the far left in each video, she's kinda clueless sometimes, but still cute (thank goodness)!!!

Graduation Day

Preschool Graduation was the morning of May 29th. Ryan was so excited and had been counting down the Friday's from four weeks before. She was very excited to wear her cap that day and the most important part of the day for her was that her Daddy would be able to come. Camilla put on a great program with a few little songs, then she asked everyone what they wanted to be when they grew up. Ryan was the last to go and her response was a soccer player! This was news to me as a while back I received something in the mail about kids soccer and I asked her if she wanted to play. Her response, with a totally sassy look on her face, was "Mom, do you REALLY want me to play sports?" From there I dropped it and figured we'd just continue our way through dance classes, apparently she has other ideas though!
Camilla then gave a little speech about teaching and the kids. She had been telling the kids at the last class day that she was kinda sad to see the year end and once again, leave it to my kid to blurt out, "I'm not sad, I get to go to Kindergarten!!!" Ryan has seriously loved school this year and is completely ready for Kindergarten. I'm excited for this new phase in her life, but I loved watching her throughout the year. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher than Camilla! She is amazingly patient and unbelievably creative. I completely admire her! I just hope she'll decide to go back to teaching when Peyton's ready for preschool!!!

Ryan and I made this cute little gift for Camilla to remind her of her "teaching days!"

Going Private

After listening to my good friend Sarah, I've decided to follow her example and go private with our blog. I've always thought "private" blogs were annoying, but after listening to Sarah, it's not something I'm willing to risk. Let me know if you want to keep reading!
