Dance Recital Number 2

January 3, 2015

A few days after Robin and Megan’s first recital, all three girls danced in another show. They were in several dances in this one.

I went way overboard taking pictures, and now it’s too hard to narrow them down….

Robin taught a class of 6, 7, and 8 year olds this semester, which she decided was a bit easier than teaching the 3, 4, and 5 year olds like she had last spring.

After the finale, the teachers did a surprise dance for the students: a unique version of a song from Frozen.

Catching Up: Thanksgiving

December 29, 2014

We got to spend Thanksgiving with Bob’s family. Music is always part of our time together.

Bob’s sister Kathy taught Addie and Lucas how to play a song on the ukulele.

Bob’s nephew Buddy is always so sweet with our little ones. He played a lot of ping pong with them this time – among other things!

As a special treat, Bob’s mom and his sister Barbara treated us to a painting session, taught by Bob’s niece, Katy.  Kathy, her daughter Mikaela, Robin, Megan and I got to spend 2 hours hanging out and attempting to paint “Starry Wisemen”. We all had some complaints about how our camels turned out – but we had a great time!

We had a great time!

Kathy and Lucas decided that they would just watch.

We always have a nice time with Bob’s family, although the time always goes by too quickly.
