We got to go to a birthday party at the roller rink.
 Not just anyone could get me to get a pair of skates on to skate, but since that is the only way Quinn would be out skating, I did it for her.  We had lots of fun.
 We love all these dance girls so much!
 blowing out candles and cake is a fun part of any party!

Our feet were tired, but
our hearts are full.
Quinn giggled for hours after we got home.
We are so thankful for our dance friends.
Sometimes it's hard as Denali is invited to lots of birthday party.
In the past Quinn was too, but now with a new school, and kids that did not grow up with her,
she has not gotten the invitations.
Denali comes home, telling me she tried to ask if Quinn could come.
(bless her heart)
but the kids say that parents are not comfortable taking care of her.
I do understand that, but it still is not fair for Quinn.

So again, having our dance friends and their friendship,
their parties, their families, it is all so important to us!

We love the program, we love the teachers, we love the parents,
and we love the kids!

I can not say how thankful I am for this program and these families.

Happy Easter!
 Denali was the only one in a great mood, as the flu was setting in on everyone else.
 As the kids were doing eggs, Quinn was not feeling great.
 The eggs were fun!

Denali is such a cute kid.
 Finding out what the Easter Bunny brought us.

So after a nice Easter break, John, Quinn, and Isaiah came down with the flu, and have been home sick for a couple days now.  Here is hoping they feel good soon, and Denali and I don't get it!

We had our church Easter Egg Hunt at the Children's Museum.
So fun!

So fun!  John and I heard them call the little group, 5 and under, and then the middle group, 5 to 8, and then the older kids.  Oh man!  We are the older kids!  When did that happen?

It was a lazy Saturday. 
Even the dog had to rest.
Isaiah noted that just like the dog keeps falling out of her bed while she is sleeping, he has been doing the same thing, and how they have a special connection that way.
 Dancing beyond limits has started again, and we are loving it.
 We are going through all kinds of growing pains.  Quinn's feet are a mess from trying to get her braces fixed and her chair not fitting her any more, so we are tending to injuries.
 Therapies sure help fix the injuries and a new set of braces were molded.
So another busy week.

We love therapy!
 We had a girls night out with Foster Care carnival.

Then we had a girls night slumber party!
Then the kids got to go play and John and I went to some classes on how to be better parents.  Such a great conference.
 Then it was off to Isaiah's dance competition.
 Grandma and Grandpa surprised us there.

The dance competition is over, and the boys did wonderful!

So proud of Isaiah and the boys!
