3 out of 4 done!

Every year, Emily has four dance performances. This past weekend was the third show for the year. It was at the Mall of America. The girls did a great job. They were able to do one dance and then they preformed 1/2 of a new dance that they are learning. They looked confident and like they were having a great time.
Emily invited her friend Maria to come and watch the show. Afterwords, they went on one ride together. They decided to go on the Pepsi Roller Coaster because it is the longest ride in the park.We were going to stay and enjoy the amusement park, but it was so crowded. We decided to go home and come back on a less crowded day. Really good choice!

I have a concert tonight too

It is time for the spring music shows at school. Andrew's was first. I love watching the Kindergartners preform. The theme was music through the decades. Andrew got to be Buzz Lightyear in the "You've Got a Friend" song. That was a fun surprise.
Time is really going by fast! Our last kindergarten music show.
Last night was the fourth graders turn. Emily got to introduce a song
She also got to participate in a dance scene and play the tambourine We have an amazing music teacher. I am always so impressed with what the kiddos learn in music class. It is an amazing music experience and exploration rather than just singing some songs.

On the way to Emily's concert, Ryan mentions that he has a concert too tonight. Seriously? Was he planning on letting us in on this secret at all? This is one of the many fun differences between sons and daughters (specifically Ryan and Emily)...Erik checked the school website from his phone, and yes fifth graders were on too.Ry knew all the songs and seemed to be prepared for this surprise concert. I am glad he got to participate in the show...and that we were able to go to it.

Shorter and Sassier!!

Emily has long hair, or should I say Emily HAD long hair?
She decided it was getting too long and too tangily. It hurt to brush through it each morning. So, she decided to get it cut off.
It is still long enough to put into her dance bun, but short enough to not get so tangled. She is one happy camper!
