And the updates, they just keep on coming!

Sorry for the break in posting there. Life was happening around here....what else is new, right?

So, it's time to update on THE GIRL! Miss Maddie was again in a combination ballet/tap class and she had her recital in May as well....naturally....everything happens in May, doesn't it??? She made a beautiful mermaid, and she did a lovely job in her dance. I tried to video the dress rehearsal to share with you all, but I couldn't get in a good spot to tape it. They did a lovely dance to Jodi Benson singing "Home Is" from "The Little Mermaid" cartoon. She and a couple other girls in her class are being promoted up two levels next year! They will skip their Combo IV class and their Ballet I class and they will all start Ballet II in the fall. We are naturally quite proud of her and can't wait to see her concentrating only on her ballet.

Now, I think I mentioned in my "Benji" post that all three of the big kids took gymnastics together this spring. Because I didn't have a blog at the time, I've never mentioned that when Jonathan took gymnastics alone two years ago, he was awarded the Honor Student of the Year award. Can you guess who won it this year? Yep, Miss Maddie won this year! Jon really wanted to win again (they give one to a boy, and one to a girl) but I don't think they would give it to him again since he won last time. Regardless, we were all very proud of Maddie for winning this year.

Soon I hope to be posting some pictures of a sweet little girl missing her two front teeth, but for now, they are still hanging on...a bit sideways, but hanging on just the same!

So I guess that's all the Maddie news for now. Next up will be Jon, and he's got the biggest news of all! Stay tuned!
