Well, the girls' costumes were ordered for their dance recital coming up in November. I'm super excited but nervous at the same time. Before signing the girls up I asked the teacher if there would be any modern dancing in it. I am only doing this for tap and ballet but I only wanted classical ballet. We shall see. The parents can't see what their kids are doing in class. They are still learning the basics and how to be flexible. Ivy has been working really hard and can do the splits in the air now. They are so cute. My living room has turned into a gym room as they are always practicing. Ivy asked me for about 3 years now if she could do ballet. I wondered if she would actually like it once she started but so far she absolutely loves it and counts down the days to the next practice. Ashley was easy to figure out because she was always fluttering around the house.
So much happened in the month of August! It is a very, very busy month for us! Cars breaking down, I become a mom to a preteen (Chaz), My kids are asked to be featured in photos for the science center, kids start school, Ivy gets taken by ambulance to the burn ward, girls start ballet lessons, the kids learn how to make their own rockets, Ryan has a birthday at a fun trampoline place, I make a major change to switch the babies to cloth diapers. While boys are away camping the girls went bowling, the boys join band in school, and Kyle turns 9. Wow! That's a lot to happen in just one month but we that's why I love our family! We have so many adventures together and don't like to be apart for very long. I feel like we need our own party bus. Ha ha. I'm thinking about getting a bumper sticker that says something like "This is our party bus."
