Corinne Turns 3!

I think Brian said it best when he wished a happy 16th birthday to his sweet 3-year-old girl. She definitely feels trapped in toddlerhood and is already a teen. 

To celebrate, we had a little slap-bang get-together and played in the driveway...









...danced and ate pink cake...








...opened presents...



...and if that girl didn't get a KITTEN from her little friend Camdyn.





Welcome to the family, Sheldon!



We like to rock and sing to him in the morning before going to school. That is one patient kitty...

Old times there are not forgotten...





...corn cob tossing...




Hail the Queen of Hay Mountain!!



And the Princess. Of course.



Thank you Luz and Gage for your part in the planning of it all!!!

Creative Movement!

Every Monday, I get to dance with 4 sweet 3-4 year old girls:


The premise of the class is that we are not there to focus on technique; we are there to learn confidence through movement.



And be silly. On purpose.

We read books, play freeze dance, eat a snack and build a ballet barre.  Here's Corinne holding an "elbow" and showing us her elbow.


Cheeeeeeeeese ballerinas!


Here is one huge difference between 4 year olds:


And 3 year olds:


No matter how they move and learn...


...these beautiful dancers know how to have a good time.
Then they go home and take a good dancer nap.  Zzzzz...
