Spring Soccer 2013

Jacob recently ended his first soccer season.  The wet weather resulted in fewer practices and a lot of make-up games but he really enjoyed it.  Gordon bravely coached 13 four and five year olds.  Jacob really got the hang of it and enjoyed getting in the mix of it to get his share of kicks in.  He may have a future as a goalie too as long as they call fouls on the kids trying to kick the ball while the goalie has it stopped (this was the one problem we had with the referees).

Megan's Performance Awards 2013

Megan's ballet studio had a judge come from New York City to critique the girls in the ballet studio.  It was considered their spring recital but all the students in the same age group performed the same dance but individually.  Megan was the youngest to receive a gold medal and the majority received silver medals.  She did amazing and has no fear performing in front of large groups of people.

Anna's Spring Recital 2013

Anna has really enjoyed learning to play the piano.  She has been taking lessons for 8 months now.

Anna's First Piano Recital

We are so proud of Anna today for participating in her first piano recital.  She has been taking piano lessons for about 3 months now.  She played "Frosty the Snowman" and "Winter Wonderland".

A dance from Finland

The kids participated in the stake Christmas social.  The theme was "Christmas around the world" so the kids helped with a dance originating from Finland.  It is about the elves on Christmas Eve.  Anna is 2nd from the left, Megan is 4th from the left, and Jacob is at the end.  So funny to watch Jacob, they loved it.

Halloween 2012

This is the first year the kids didn't want to coordinate or be part of the same theme.  Jacob was a robot, "DANGER!  NEED MORE CANDY!".  Megan was a paper doll and Anna chose to be a washing machine.  Next year, less bulkiness more fabric.  (Owen was a baby carrot, I will add a picture later)
