5th grade graduation happened yesterday.  
Isaiah is now a middle school student.
Oh boy!!!!

 and the last day of school
 It has been a hard year with lots of  learning opportunities, and we are all stronger because of it.
 Denali will be going into 5th grade.
 Isaiah will be going into 6th grade.
Quinn will be going into 5th grade.
 We have learned that change is hard, but sometimes change is ok, and it's taken a long time to see that.  We are hoping that one change will not be Quinn's nurses.  We love both of them!
 So happy summer everyone!  We need a few days to decompress and chill out, then we will start on lots of summer fun!

Final practices, pictures, costumes, lots of fun with dance this week.  
Denali's baton class has been so much fun for her this year.

 With the way the sun was shining, Denali looks like she is in the spotlight!  Right there in the front.

 So good to have good friends.

 Denali had to get a after taking her hair out of her fake bun look.

Tonight is the night, today May 22, 7:20 for our 2nd dance performance.  
Short and sweet and free tonight.

These pictures are from Saturday's performance in Omaha.  It still brings  tears to my eyes, and hope to my heart.  It's so good to be with people who see all these girls for their abilities!  

So thankful!

Thanks to a kind soul bringing it to my attention.  
I said Quinn's dance recital, the short and sweet one is this next Monday, and then totally gave the wrong date.  It is this next Monday, and 
the correct date is: Monday May 22nd!  
That is what I meant.  Oh the end of the year is hard.  I mentioned that.  
At Madonna Pro Active at 7:20 in the evening, and will only be about 10 minutes! 
 It will be a lovely show.  Would love to see you there, now that I have put the write date on here.

YEAH, Quinn's chair has gone through insurance, and almost all of it has been covered!  We have to get alternative funding or pay for one thing on our own, but we will do it!

Thank Goodness, Quinn's body is so ready to be in a seat that fits her again!

Don't forget the dance recital is next Monday, for a short and sweet performance.
Check one blog down for more information.

We celebrated with a bunch of people by helping plant Amelia's garden.
It was a beautiful day!

 We planted.
 We talked.
 We listened to stories.
 We blew bubbles.

 We got dirty! :)
 We watched.

 We got silly!
It was a beautiful morning! 
We still love you Amelia, and always will!

The end of the school year is so busy!
We are all exhausted, but still working on so much fun stuff.

You are all invited to come watch us dance.
It will be short and sweet, this next Monday, May 27th, at 7:20
at Madonna Pro Active.
The dance will not be more then 10 minutes, and you will love it!
The kids have worked so hard, and all three of my kids are involved with
Dancing Beyond Limits, so come get some good feels in.  They are an amazing group of dancers.
If you would rather see us in Omaha this weekend, that is happening Saturday around 2, 
and our big long recital will be the first weekend of June.  Feel free to chat with me about any of them.  This next Monday is free and will be wonderful!

Mothers Day!
I learned my kids don't know how old I am.
I learned Isaiah likes to have me buy him stuff.
I learned Denali likes to have on stage makeup for dance class.
I learned my kids think I drink to much Diet Pepsi.
Quinn did not make it to church, her allergies and maybe night mares kept us up most of the night.
She is also still fighting being in her wheelchair.  We are still working on getting insurances to cover it.  Our 3rd insurance send us (as in all of us involved in getting the chair) a note asking why the primary did not cover the battery, we said we wondered the same thing.  The chair won't run without the battery, so....  we keep praying that things will go though sooner then later.
I talked to Quinn about the questions, and she was thankful I cuddle with her when she does not feel good.  Oh how I love my kids!

 We are getting ready for dance performances.  Picture week and final practices are coming up with lots of pictures too.  Denali working on her baton performance.  She is a natural dancer.
 Morning snuggles with our wonderful nurse Amanda.  We are so thankful! A big shout out to the nurses this week.  Happy Nurse appreciation week to all of you!  
 Denali's graduating from the Viola, and look at all these ribbons she got for each song she passed.  This year she had the choice of viola again or try out a band instrument.  She wanted to do the drums, then the flute, after meeting with the band teacher, she has decided on the clarinet.  So it will be a fun year.
