One of my most favorite things about Step Ahead Dance Studio, is their Daddy Daughter Dance! Each year they have one dance where the dads dance with their girls. This year the recital theme was space and the dance was Star Wars. For several Saturdays prior to the recital, the Dads and girls meet together to learn the dance and practice. Arianna loves doing this with Chris.
It is so encouraging to see all of these grown men who most wouldn’t dare get on stage but for their little girl, they sacrifice!
Chris and Ari did a great job dancing together in the recital!!!!!
A quick word about the homeschool conference…It is in Winston Salem every year the last week in May. I highly recommend you go…whether you homeschool, are considering homeschooling, wonder why us crazy people homeschool or you just want to improve your parenting skills. It is jam packed with practical advice for all parents!
We had a great time learning, re-affirming our decision, growing spiritually, spending time with our families and just enjoying being together! I always leave the conference feeling inspired and desiring to be a better Christian, Mommy and Wife!
We went to the homeschool conference and the kids stayed with Nana. Arianna and Ryan planned a surprise party for Chris while we were gone.
They picked out the presents, wrapped them and decorated for the party. They were excited about encouraging Daddy!
Ryan is so happy to have Daddy back!
When we got home, we had our own family party on his actual birthday. Our family tradition is to go and do whatever the birthday person wants to do on their birthday. Chris chose to go to McAlister's to eat.
Each holiday, the kids pick out a dachshund to give to Chris for the special occasion. This year Ari picked out the Birthday Dachshund and Ryan picked out the taxi dachshund.
Here is Arianna in my going to her last Daisy meet with my old Brownie uniform.
She had her end of year picnic (ended up being indoors due to rain) and her bridging over ceremony. I am so proud of my new brownie!!
