I know it’s the middle of June. I know that school finally got out this past Thursday and I still haven’t reported on many recent school events (there seem to be so many this time of year). I know I’m a bad blogger for getting behind (again). But I do have some fun layouts to share documenting three events that took place last month.

The first was a combination Spanish Class and Music Class performance that included acting, dancing, singing and presentations by Anna’s class. Ellie and I attended along with Anna’s Grandma Carol who recently returned to Minnesota.  For the Spanish portion of the show, Anna danced and was also “Chicken Little” in a play. Her chicken costume was courtesy of her sister (her favorite bath towel). In music Anna and her friends sang and danced to “Don’t Stop Believing”. It was the song these same girls were singing and dancing to on the big screen at the Twin’s baseball game back in April. I think it’s become their theme song.

I love seeing my girl perform. She really has a passion for it that shows.

The same week the class decided to have a “Minnesota Sport’s Team” Day where the students could dress in their favorite team gear. Of course, Anna’s favorite Minnesota team is the Vikings. Go Vikes!

Ellie’s big event for May was her dance recital. She was a tap dancing elephant in a performance of “The Jungle Book”. The show as held at her big brother’s school. It was her second recital. Last year she spent most of her song looking up at the lights. Last year she fell down (more than once). Last year she kicked off her shoe. Last year she got distracted during the exit and got cut off by the big kids entering the stage (she figured it out and got a chuckle from the audience). This year she actually danced most of the routine. This year she didn’t fall down or loose her shoes. This year she looked like she knew what she was doing. This year she looked like she was having fun. This year she knew she was a dancer.

I love my little elephant.

(Only one more concert and the end of the year Medallion ceremony to report on to complete the school year–more later.)
