Tiny Dancer

Yesterday was Madelyn's very first dance recital.
To say she was excited would be an understatement.
She was made for the stage people.

Our morning started early with makeup by Selina.

She was so proud of that makeup!
Part of her bedtime prayer included,
"thank you that Selina could do my makeup and thank you that I could dance on stage with all that beautiful makeup."

 This girl lit the stage right up.
Our smiles were just as bright as hers!

Madelyn and her girlfriends.

She was showered with flowers at the end of the show.

A quick pic with her bro who insisted on being silly.

A final bow.
At which point she slammed her knee into the floor and sobbed.
Black mascara tears ran down her face.
She wouldn't talk to any of her fans.
Such is life for our tiny dancer...

Down on the farm

I went on a field trip today with my favorite kindergartner.  
We had the best time at the Real Life Farm.
There was certainly no shortage of smiles.

We were there for all of five minutes and two pictures before my camera battery died.  Awesome.

So, iphone pictures will have to do...
 Bottle feeding a baby goat.
There was some hand feeding too!
 Milking the cow with farmer Dan.
 A little hayride fun...
 Fixin to ride the horse!
 Momma even got to lead!
Leading this horse around the trail almost made me want one of my own.  Almost.

Loved spending the day with my sweet boy!
