2016 Year in Review

2016 was one of those years that was great for the kids! They all started new activities, continued ones they loved and said good bye to others. It was a huge learning lesson for the girls, both with making new friends, realizing ones who may not be a good fit for them and learning how to deal with their own personal issues.

Sam this year went from 7th to 8th grade and enjoyed dancing and hanging with her friends. She has continued to keep a 4.0 GPA and made Principle’s Honor Roll twice now! She has taken back up Piano Lessons as well as Violin twice a week.

Sarah went from 4th to 5th grade and is loving her dance life! She also takes violin, went to music camp and loves her girl scout troop! She received the Gold Medal in Reading Olympics at school and has really worked hard in getting her grades up. She dances every day and absolutely loves her dance friends! She also started her adventure with braces!!

It was a big year for Shelby! She started pre-school and loves dancing. She earned a spot in this year’s Nutcracker where she was a Gingerbread!! In March she got a hold of scissors and cut all her hair off. Mama cried, but at least it will grow back!

Our little man turned 1 this year and he is so much fun! He brings our entire family  joy and comfort.I love having a little by in the house. He is goofy, and loving. He says so many words!

We have many amazing things in our plan for 2017!!!
