Dance like EVERYBODY is watching!!

Zoey had her first full dance recital.  She did one during the fall which was short and sweet.  This one was more detailed and a little longer.  She had a blast.  She loved her hip-hop class.  Sadly, the dance studio that she was at is closing.  I am not sure we will do dance again.  We may, but I am thinking gymnastics will be our next step.  But who knows.  Secretly I wish she would take to softball or soccer.  I know a lot more about those than any dance moves! ;)  However, I want her to find her own passions and if that is in dance then I guess I can get girly with the best of them!

Character Award

Jon Kent's first grade teacher nominated him for the "Aiken Character First" award.  All the first grade teachers had to agree that he was worthy of the award, which they all did.  I know at his age Jon Kent doesn't realize the honor that goes with this award, but I as his parent sure do.  It does my heart good to know he is learning some of the values that we are teaching at home.  I truly hope he carries those values and lessons with him through out the remainder of his school years and on into his life.

The write up for why he was selected.

Happy Graduation Day!

Zoey has graduated kindergarten.  She got an owl award for know all her lightning words and the PE award.  She was so proud of herself and she should be!  Zoey did awesome this year in school and she had amazing teachers helping her all along the way.

Zoey, we are so proud of you and all that you accomplished this year!  We know there are big things in store for you!  You are truly the sparkle in our family and we are very blessed to call you our daughter!!!  We love you so very, very much!!

Just to make it clear.. my 29th birthday will be my last official birthday.  The rest (if God wills) will just be anniversaries of my 29th birthday.


For whatever reason, I am not looking forward to the big 3-0.  I know people say that the 30's are when they really start feeling good in their skin.  Bravo to you.  I just don't have that feeling.  Maybe I will, but for now I am holding on tight to my 20's.

My birthday weekend was great.  Since my birthday fell on Mother's Day this year I felt a little jibbed if I am being honest.  But Kent and the kids made it up to me.  They spoiled me and all around make me feel loved. It really was one of my best birthdays yet!

So here's a happy 29th birthday to me.. with many more 29th's to go!
