Season One of Eva's Dance

There are somethings that are worth dropping everything else and doing that one thing. Dance is that one thing. It is an honor to have Eva dance with her team this year. Every jump, smile, toe point, shuffle brings me so much joy. Eva has worked hard to learn new styles of dance and learn from many new choreographers.  One week she danced 30 hours to rehearse. Over four weekends of competition the girls would start dancing at 7:30 in the morning and not end until 10:00pm at night.  It has been fun to meet all the families and watch all the competitions.

Christmas always holds so many wonderful memories. Hudson and Eva enjoyed christmas cookies delivered from the neighbors.
 Every year we do the Christmas lights at Country Springs.

 We had a White Christmas hike at Nashota Park.

 Luke had been waiting a long time for his own ipad!

December traditions

Hudson was my only customer to make cookies at my work. Eva was at a robotics competition and Luke was testing for his high red belt.

Eva performed in "A Galilee Far Far Away." The kids did an amazing job. My friend directed the play and I helped as well.
 Eva's group one the presentation award for Lego League.

 Hudson performed his 4K concert. I was the room mom and brought treats.
