Rosie’s old enough to have play dates! Harriet told Rosie that she was her best friend and the smile on Rosie’s face was seriously amazing.

Mother’s day song Isa wrote for me with Marc’s help.  The blue dots show where Marc and Isa are supposed to change dance moves.  The last dance move is “happy pose”.

Isa went to work with Daddy! She didn’t wear appropriate clothing and had to borrow daddy’s light jacket.  It was so embarrassing (she said)!

Jimmy’s been taking a dance class over the last 6 weeks. Today was his recital. All the dancers were sitting in a large circle and Jimmy went to the middle of it and danced and then prompted an applause. By the time I started taping, he had been at it for awhile. The first few rounds of applause he got were seriously great and he LOVED them! Sadly, not shown in the videoSad smile

The next video is of Jimmy’s warm up. He does a few moves but mostly he just watches the others dance.

Prompting the applause!

Isa went on an Adventure Guides camp out with Marc. I think they both had a great time. It involves a trip to Culvers there and back.
