Violet started Mommy and Me and her first dance class. She loved every minute of it. I was a little nervous since she is our little wild and free spirit, but this was probably one of the best things for her. The classes kept her moving and getting all her wiggles out. Violet even said after class she was ready for a nap . . . I’m so glad we found something that fits her personality so well. It is with the same teacher we had for Emerald when she was two. Violet is so proud that she gets to go to “school” like her big sister (so cute) she even packed her backpack with snacks and toys for school. She is really growing up so fast and communicates so well now she is no longer my baby.
Emerald is still loving school I even have been using -not going to school- as a threat when she is misbehaving and it has been working wonderfully she never wants to miss class.
She was invited to her first school birthday party at Chuck E Cheese and she absolutely loved it. I took just her and Brock stayed home with Violet which made it even more special for her plus the invitation said to dress like a princess which made Emerald so happy. She picked Belle, a costume she got two years ago . . . even tho that kid has a dozen princess dresses. It was strange for me not knowing what to do at the party at first I stayed playing the games with her, but after pizza she wanted to go off with her friends. One of the other moms was telling not to worry they can’t leave by themselves or with anyone else which did make me feel a little better, I mean come on I do leave her at school all day you would think I could handle this. It is a strange thing when your kids don’t need you anymore and want to just play with their friends, I thought it would be a few more years before getting to this point. After all this little lady will be 5 in just two short weeks. It is crazy to think that we moved into our little house almost five years ago it feels like only yesterday we were moving in and I was going into labor. . .
Well we finished off the weekend with visiting Grandma and Papa and having a little summer rain. Violet does not look too happy in all the pictures but I promise she was having the best time running around in the rain.
