I am so glad I’ve keep this blog for almost SEVEN years now. It has been the ONE place I can keep a current journal of all our life changes and kid updates. One day I hope they look back and read all the stories, accomplishments, family times we have shared together.
Anyway, I have to give an update about my middle lady Valentina. Today she danced at dance class for the first time! She has been waiting for this day for a while now, patiently. Gabriella started her third year of dance this week too and Val has been waiting for all those three years!
She wasn’t into getting a picture before heading in, she wanted to go INSIDE and get down to dancing. But, I grabbed this quick shot anyway!
Valentina couldn’t wait to get into her dance clothes this morning! She has been asking me every day if it was her turn to dance. I keep reassuring her that dance class was Saturday morning. I had taken all the kids to buy the girls new dance shoes Monday after school. She has been staring at her tap and ballet shoes all week!
Today was her day. She met her new classmates and had a half hour of ballet class where she danced to songs from Moana and then on to a half hour of tap dancing to tunes from Trolls! It was so adorable to watch her dance – this gal has moves. She is always dancing at home and LOVES listening and moving to music and chance she gets.
At four years old Valentina is ready to be the star of the show! She walked right into her classroom with confidence and headed right for the first row to the mirrors. The rest was history! I’m so excited to see how she progresses over the year. She will be in the big year-end recital with her sister in June!
A bunch of four year olds dancing has got to be the cutest thing EVER.
