Joseph and Rebekah's First Game

Joseph team is called the Super Heros and Rebekah's team is the Goblins (mostly because they are green). Joseph is number 7 and Rebekah is number 4. They did so great! I am so excited to be included in their wonderful lives and to be able to be a part of this beautiful day. You can speed up the slide show or slow it down with the plus and minus on the lower left. Also, when you put your mouse over the picture it gives you a caption of what is happening in the photo.

Here is my sweet princess. She was so excited to be going to her first dancing lessons. I have been wanting to put her in for a long time and now I feel the time is right and the teacher is even better. She looks so beautiful in her sweet little little outfit and darling tiny shoes.
As her instructor, Nicole, was helping others stretch Rebekah watched in the mirror and tried on her own. Made me emotional. I am so happy about her being in ballet. She is definitely a girly, girl.


Nicole is so great! This is Rebekah's first lesson and already she began warming up to her. She is patient and yet energetic and inspiring for the girls. This is her helping Rebekah stretch for the first time.
We are going to try and get Rebekah the black leotard before her next lesson but for now she was easy to spot. lol She is the only one in white. She was really excited about all the mirrors and she really wanted to be able to do what the other girls were doing.Meeting new friends!
She was such a trooper at trying new things in front of other people. I am not sure what fancy name they call this in ballet (believe me it has a fancy name, just like all the sweet things they did) but in Karate they call it the duck walk.This is a kind of tiptoe scoot. You know how they do where the right leg stays behind the left all the way across the floor.

And then Nicole would try to get her to stand with her feet in a first position "V" and her arms in a low circle position at the end of each exercise. And I have two videos for you all to see of my sweet princess. I am so excited about this I can't tell you how much it made me happy to see Rebekah loving this.
