New Orleans Weekend FUN!!

Two weeks ago, the girls, Meme and I went down to New Orleans to see my brother, sister-in-law, and niece, Kendall. We had a great time. For anyone going that way, I recommend you going to the Children's Museum. My girls and niece had a great time there. We stayed about 2 and a half hours, but the girls could have stayed half a day. There was so many things to do! After the museum we went to the aquarium, which is always fun. We are planning a trip back soon once the weather cools off. We also got to go do a little shopping. Shelly got Baby James his first gift. We just found out a couple of weeks ago the baby is going to be a boy! Kate is so excited!

And now Kate's turn....

Today Kate had her first day of dance in our new city. Her class is a combination of gymnastics, ballet and tap. Let me just tell you, she is in love with the tap shoes. I have to admit, she is pretty darn cute in them! Here she is getting ready for class. Emme Wallace is the other little girl. Emme and she are in the same class at school. They were thrilled when they saw each other today. (side note, hope her mom doesn't mind that I just posted her pic on the web, AGH!)

First day of ballet/gymnastics

Today was Leah first day of ballet/gymnastics. Leah loved it. Well of course she did. She wouldn't let me leave. It ended up being a "mommy and me" class. Like her teacher said, maybe after 6 weeks I can quit attending classes, HA, we'll see :)
She looked so cute. Her teacher is Ms. Becky. Ms. Becky taught me as a child as well as Chris. He is quite the gymnast, just ask him, he'll do a flip flop for you in a heart beat!

School update and random pic

Day 4 of school - nap time is still her favorite part. ??? She tells me she has to sit all day in her chair - so I guess she likes to finally be out of her seat! I dunno know!

School days, school days, good ole golden rules day....

Kate started K4 at Parklane Academy last week. She was very excited to go. She woke up bright and early and wanted to get dressed right away. She has a "uniform" she has to wear. It consist of khakis and either a red, white or blue polo shirt or school logo t-shirt. Mrs. Brown is her teacher. Mrs. Brown is precious and we adore her. When I picked Kate up, she told me her favorite thing was nap. I laughed. On the second day, I asked her again, she replied, nap. Oh my!

I know several children in her class. One of my best friend's from PA little girl is in the class. Also, my nephew Kyle is in her class. I think this made Kate's days much easier having him in the class.

Fun in the sun!

We just got back from the beach. We had lots of fun. Meme and Pop joined us (or more like we joined them, HA). Kate and Leah had a great time swimming. Kate said she liked the pool better than the ocean. She says the ocean itches! Too funny. The girls came back with a better tan than me, go figure! After the family left, I stayed and spent a few days with my college gals. I'll update more about that later, we had a blast!
