Project 365 - Anna's First Recital and Passing League Football

Anna has been taking ballet classes, one class per week, since January. As you saw in her birthday party post, she is really enjoying her classes and her teacher, Miss Emily. All of Miss Emily's classes have been preparing for the past few months for their annual recital, held once a year, at the end of June.

The few days before the recital were tough for Anna as she dealt with nerves... she kept saying the "butterflies were dancing in her tummy!" You can only imagine how nervous she was when a few of the gals didn't show up to the recital and about 10 minutes before the show started, the formation was changed and Anna was put front and center! As MY stomach started getting nervous for her, she all of a sudden stepped up, got this calm smile on her face and said she was ready. She HAD NEVER danced that routine BETTER than she did that day! (ahhhh... I'm tearing up with pride just thinking about it!) ALL of the girls had their best performance EVER and we couldn't have been happier for them!

Passing League Football... who says that athletes get the summer off!? Lots of practice... lots of games... with our football field still under construction (we are getting a BRAND NEW synthetic turf field and track), the boys had to play on the practice field... and Chris is doing very well. Can't wait to see what our PATRIOTS can do on their new field!!!
