Emily really liked her flowers too. We are proud of both girls but Emily is just not as "showy" as Anna Kate....Emily did a great job on her routine! She really did enjoy dance this year.
The girls were happy to have their Grandmother & Poppa (my parents) and Mimi & Grandpa (Dan's parents) come watch them perform.
They are already planning for next year....Emily has decided she wants to take tap plus jazz/hip hop. Anna Kate says she wants to take ballet, tap & hip hop! Oh my.....what's wrong with just clogging?
Emily wanted to ride the school bus home. Most of the neighborhood kids got off at the pool. They were welcomed with silly string and water balloons. Most headed straight to the frigid waters of the pool to open it for the season.
Chandra was there with Baby M....such a cutie!
Anna Kate has a really hard time keeping presents as a secret....when I was driving her to school the friday before Mother's Day, this was our conversation...
AK: "Mommy, we have you some presents in the basement!"
Mommy: "You do!"
AK: "Yes but Daddy and Emily will KILLLLL me if I 'teld" you!"
Mommy: "Okay, well, let's just wait to see what I get on Sunday"
AK: "Okay, I'm so proud of myself for not telling you that we got you a new purse, sunglasses and flip-flops".
Mommy: "I'm proud of you too."
And the flip-flops...yellow box! Big bonus, the flip flops were picked out by Emily and they fit her perfectly. :)
All in all, I did have a great day ~ I just love my girls!
I took my Nurs 1102 final on Wednesday, May 6th. I have successfully finished my first year of nursing school (2 classes down ~ 2 classes to go). I will have to honestly say that this is the hardest thing I have EVER done in my life....the body is a complex thing but add full time mommy, full time employee, full time wife, taxi, short order cook, etc., etc....it is just plain HARD!
Fortunately, I do NOT have summer classes....until August, I will focus all of my time and energy on these three amazing people....

Oh and for the first time, I straightened Anna Kate's hair. She just loved it but there is NO way that I can do this daily....and weekly is probably out of the question too. Needless to say, it took a lot of product and elbow grease to straighten!

Emily was pleased with her birthday celebration this year. Matter of fact, she told me and her Daddy that this was the best birthday party she had ever had...I'm not surprised coming from a little lady that doesn't like to typically be the center of attention nor gets excited about much! :)
Happy Birthday, Emily! I still just can't believe you are 11!
