My Girl

My daughter, who I lovingly call Bunny (short for honey bunny) just turned 3 and had her first dance recital... all in the same weekend! She performed 2 days in a row, a Saturday and Sunday, and turned 3 that Monday. We didn't have her a party this year, because of economic reasons :( But it's okay because we had fun anyway.Saturday's performance was in the night, and I sat in the back and waited, while she performed (we had tickets to Sunday's performance). I heard our family screaming her name through the intercom in the back, and when she was done she came running out to me with a huge smile. Everyone said she did so well. On Sunday, we had a hard time finding parking, but once we were settled in our seats I got nervous. I recorded her dance, even though we weren't supposed to (but I didn't know that when I was recording). She did amazing for the youngest one in the group, and I'm so glad she got to perform with her cousin, and friend.
Here's my Bunny in the middle of the group with their teacher Ms. Chantel. Yes, she's a shorty :)

Here they are dancing, again she's the short one in the middle.
Not wanting to leave, she loves dancing.

On Monday for her birthday, we had a few errands to run in the morning. After that we went to my in laws house so the kids can play with their cousins, watch Percy Jackson, and we ate pizza. I don't know where she got the idea, but she ended up in a pillowcase jumping around the house, lol. The kids had a blast! When we got home, I baked Bunny a little cake while the kids played outside. We bought her a giant dollhouse, which is almost as big as she is.

And my mom gave her money, so we bought her a tricycle with that.

I'm not a cake decorator, but it was a yummy cake!

Happy Birthday Bunny, and were so proud of you for dancing so well!!

Upside down

Yup, that's how my life feels right now. I know it's been a while since I've posted, but life happens, and just changed the way everything at our house is! Let me catch you up to speed a little, so I make more sense.

So since January here's what's been going on (but not necessarily in order). I got a huge order for recital costumes (that went horribly wrong), I just don't want to talk about that lol. My girly turned the big 3, which still bothers me because I was hoping to freeze her at this age forever. My girl had her first recital, and boy was I sitting there nervous as ever (like I was the one dancing), but she did fantastic! The husband got a new job, working for a local water company. We've been waiting for this position to open up for a while now, so now we feel like we can breathe a little more. Now that my hunny has his new job, we've decided to move next year back to our hometown, so I've been cleaning (more like decluttering and tossing out) everything like crazy (which makes my house look more like a disaster), that way when we move it'll be easy as pie!

In May I pulled the boys out of school, because of some serious stuff going on (it's a private matter, that just makes me sick to my stomach to think about). This is a big thing for us, because I just felt like my kids were no longer safe, and I just did not feel good about sending them there anymore. We've since made the decision to homeschool them, which I've thought about for the past few years anyway (just wasn't sure on how to go about it). Everything that's happened recently with our local public school, just gave me the push I needed to look up our options. I signed up for various meetup/homeschool/play groups, because you know the wives tale about homeschooled kids and how badly socialized they are! So as you can see, there's lot's of stuff that's been keeping me busy, and hopefully things will calm back down and I'll be able to get back to blogging regularly.
