Final Dance practices and pictures.
This weekend is the dance recital.
 Denali's theater class is doing Matilda, and we are going to see it this week, so that will be fun!

 Isaiah had his final practice too.  It is so fun to see him so happy with his dance friends.

 Some of Isaiah's dance outfits.

Pictures from the 2nd of 4 dance recitals.
 We are thankful for these people who we love so much, who helped or came and watched the performance.

 It was great!

These girls are so good for each other.
(I will say they did just have their first fight and both of them were bawling 10 minutes later and could not stop hugging on each other)

 The girls.

 The rainbow on the way home, and Denali pointing it out over our house.
Lots more dance picts to come.

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!
