Our Hip Hop Dancer

Maria took a hip hop dance class through Community Education this summer. Here is a video from her final class. Super cute.  The ages in the class ranged from 5-8 and she missed the class before this one, so there are my excuses for my little dancer who may miss a couple of steps.


My poor blog has been ignored!

The first half of this month has flown by! And I wasn’t “here” to post about our fun Fourth of July picnic/party. Or how Charlie went through a fussy stage. Or how he had some oatmeal, but not really enjoying it. Or Charlie rolling over. Missed writing about the few days we spent at Luther Park (although that was just a few days ago). Or how Maria is now going to big kid swimming lessons (without me or Chad in the pool!). Or about how my back started hurting and now I’m also sneaking chiropractor appointments into my busy schedule. And even worse, I haven’t had a chance to take many pictures, even though I take my camera everywhere…

A few videos of Charlie (unedited – because our editing software isn’t compatible with the iphone movie format) and a few pictures for you now… hope to be back sooner rather than later.

Maria Loves Disco

This afternoon we met Sarah and Lilah and some of their friends out for an afternoon of dance party fun!  It was a ton of fun to get out and get our groove on! It was great to get out of the house on the dreary day and have a place where Maria could roam.  We knew it was time to go when she was laying down on the floor and sucking her thumb though!

Of course she didn’t like to groove when the camera was rolling, but here are some snip-its.  And a cute picture!
