Summer Recap~Part I

I can't believe summer break is over!! Bennett went back to school yesterday and Mylie starts kindergarten next week!! Time really flies. We had such a great summer and it was definitely as full and fun as we could get it. It never ceases to amaze me how busy a summer can get. I feel like at the beginning of every summer I look at my calendar and think--wow, we really don't have much planned. This summer probably won't be too busy...but then it always is! We didn't even fit in all the things we hoped to! Take our backyard pool, for example. This is the only time we got it out. So much for our plans to fill it up a few times! Seems like that always happens. Well, we had a great time the one time we did it...well technically it was a two-day event, so we really got our use out of it in one weekend. Oh, and you gotta love summer popsicles (or fudge bars in my case) as well!

Hopefully I will get up to speed on this blog and post like a crazy woman so I can share some more current events like back to school and this pregnancy. I am 24 weeks today and I haven't even posted one bump picture!

Dancing~In Action

I know I've said it before, but this girl is such a performer. She loves to be on stage--and I don't think she ever lost her smile. I was glad I was able to get a good seat at her recital this year and get some pictures of her dancing.

Dancing Queen

Back in the Spring, Mylie was very busy with dance. That girl LOVES to dance and is such a joy to watch. She could literally dance and sing all day. This year we were so lucky to have her be able to do a solo. She is not shy one bit, and just thought it was so much fun to dance for the judges and for a big audience. Mom on the other hand was a big wreck and more nervous than I ever could have imagined! She did so amazing and won Queen! We had so much fun dressing her up in all of her darling costumes and watching her smile and dance on stage. Her dance teachers are so FABULOUS and I am so glad they do what they do! I never have to worry about questionable music or dance moves, and the quality of dance they teach is so darn good! Here are a few pics back from April and May.

Here she is all ready to perform her solo the first time.

She was trying on one of her costumes just for fun.  photo IMG_0462_zps4b76667d.jpg  photo IMG_0464_zpseebe16a3.jpg  photo IMG_0466_zps266c2d36.jpg  photo IMG_0469_zps44942789.jpg
In the dressing room at a competition. (Yes that is a little pregnant tummy growing on me...part of my memories of all of the dance competitions was feeling so darn sick.)

A quick photoshoot with her crown and trophy. I had no idea the trophy would be that big. Kind of tricky to find a place for it :)
