It was another great dance recital for the girls. They both did a wonderful job. Ava did her tap routine to " a sunshine day " ( remember the brady bunch song) and Amber's routine was to " heartless" by Kayne West. They both enjoyed their classes this past session and had great teachers. Ava will continue dancing with her tap teacher throughout the summer. She absolutley loves it and will be moving on to the dance team soon. Amber however has put up her jazz shoes and is moving onto soccer and tennis.

On the penalty kill again

Thats exactly how I feel.... we are one member short on our family bench this week. Amber just got back from her week long "Exploring New Horizons" camp and Drew leaves tomorrow on his Yosemite camping trip with his 6th grade class. We literally unloaded Ambers gear from my truck, shook out the sleeping bag, unloaded the clothes out of backpack and but Dmans in!

Amber had a blast at camp. She has been telling us all about it nonstop since she got off the bus. The best story thus far:
Mom: Did you kiss the banana slug?
Amber: Yah
Kids: eeuuww
Amber: Well it was either kiss it or lick a I did both !!!
Thats my girl!! The other highlight was skit night. Where her group did a music video to " I kissed a slug and I liked it- hope my natuarlist dont mind it "
I missed her terrribly- it was the longest week ever. And know I get to start another one. Dman leaves on mothers day and will be home on wednesday. He has his 2 best buds in his cabin with him, so I am sure he will have a blast. I just hope that I will survive !!

May begins....

It is only 7 days into may and we have already had 2 brother in law birthdays and 1 nephew. Happy birthday Brandon, Anthony and Steve. So today we celebrate the 4th birthday so far for the month.
Although may is busy for us, its my favorite month of the year. My wonderful husband was born, I was honored to marry my prince this same month. And for 2 weeks I get to gloat about being 2 whole years younger than him !!
I just wanted to let my "old man" know how much I love him and I am so thankful for him in my life. I also want to let his mom know how thankful I am to her for bringing him into the world and helping him be the person that I fell in love with. Thanks for being such a great dad- we have so much fun as a family and we love ya !!
We hope you have a great day ( dont work too hard )
