First Day of School – 2013-2014

Ella is in 5th grade, and Max is in Kindergarten?
Unbelievable… And so wonderful!

A photo from this morning in the school room, and a video (click on the link below the photo named “max K day one” to play) I captured of Max singing his Happy First Day of School song and dance. 🙂

I think the picture says it all… They were coloring as I read George Muller.
What a great day today.

Oh… And you can see Jupiter next to the moon too.

And I took a dance class.. Yep. That’s right. Second one in my 34 years.. Loved it. But I believe I will feel it tomorrow!

Here’s a link to Ella’s ballet recital with balletmore from April 25, 2009. She will be the 5th one entering (there are only 5 girls in her class, so she’ll be hard to miss!) She had a few solos, to which she initally didn’t realize were solos.. she just thought she didn’t have a partner 🙂 What a perspective!

Photos of the performance and lots of Ella and Max to be posted soon – again, I need to get them off the camera!

The birthday week has come to a close..

Ella had a few friends and family over on Saturday to celebrate her birthday..

Sunny day, lots of fun, low stress.. The kids got to play while the adults talked and took turns holding Max.

Ella made and decorated “fairy buns” for the occasion. She had certain ones for certain people and made sure they had them!

Ella also wanted to have a food drive instead of presents.. honestly – that was her idea. Thanks to the generosity of everyone we have a stack to donate!

Thanks everyone!


she’s 6!
