dance dance.....

Yesterday was the kids dance picture day. So i spent all afternoon running back and forth to the studio for the kids pictures. I was really wishing that Rianne's pictures were later than they were. Hers ended up being at 4:00. She gets home from school at 3:00 and she needed her hair all dolled up and curly. I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not much of a hair mom. I can't get her hair looking all pageant pretty, but i did my best, and all in the nick of time. Daylon had his pictures at 5:30. We ended up waiting 45 minutes for his pictures because they were so far behind by the time his turn came.

Costumes this year have been pretty neat. There were a few groups that i wondered about but for the most part, i liked them all. Rianne has two outfits this year. The pink one is for Jazz and she has a cute little blue number for her ballet. Daylon has these cool REALLY baggy pants with the hot green shirt for hip hop. He actually looked quite at home with the rest of the boys.
Just a few more weeks of practice before their big rehearsal and recital. I'm really looking forward to it this year. Last year everything was so chaotic. This year I'm just going to go with the flow and enjoy it...... all 3 1/2 hours of it!

The kids are telling me now that they don't want to dance next year. I'm kinda heartbroke over it. Daylon, not so much. I was just hoping that he could find something he enjoyed doing. This just happens to be one of those things that he's tried and just doesn't really enjoy too much. But Rianne wanting to quit is so very upsetting to me. I'm not sure if it's because it's the same thing this year as it was last year (jazz and ballet combined but different dances this year) or what. But next year she can split off and do other stuff. I'm hoping she'll want to do it again after a break from it over the summer.

So...... take a good look...... this may be the last dance pictures....... EVER!!!!!!!!
Ohhhhhh!!!!!! and before i forget.... quick update on Sam.
Second round of blood test came back saying that his "levels" were almost back to normal. No news about whether we should go back for another round of tests but we feel much better knowing that he's getting better. The lump is slowly going away. It gets smaller day by day. Although, oddly enough, he woke up with a fever this morning. We are just hoping that it's just his 2 year old molars trying to come through and not another virus trying to take over.
