Here are a few pictures (Thank you Grandma Kirkwood!):
|Ms. Paula was seriously AMAZING and so full of energy! You could tell she LOVES doing what she does.|
|Colton wanted to join the picture!|
|Colton did a great job during each of Summer's classes and her recital. He packed a suitcase full of cars and his car mat and played quietly the whole 45 minutes each class. I was SO proud of him!|
|Larkyn enjoyed watching all the movement and music and dressed up in her ballet tutu to support her sister ;)|
Summer has also been LOVING soccer. She is all smiles for this as well, and is ecstatic that her Daddy is her coach! The field is her stage in this case, and she loves it when Grandma Kirkwood comes to watch her games! She is #4 on the blue team. The first scrimmages and game, I would describe her as the cheerleader and team nurse, as she loved shouting encouragement to her team as well as stopping to make sure everyone who tripped was ok :). Her strength is definitely her energy as she runs full speed the whole time! Each time, however, she is getting better at learning the game. She is starting to learn it is ok to take the ball from the other team. Her two best game moments so far are, offensively, when she had a breakaway and ran down the field dribbling the ball all by herself and almost scored a goal in game number 1. The second was, in a defensive move, when she kicked the ball away from a kid on the other team who was about to score a goal in game number 2.. For the most part, however, she stays with the ball, running constantly, and touches it sometimes :). I am most proud of her great attitude, her smile, and her kindness toward her brother, and all on her own sharing her special team soccer snacks with him. Melted my heart :).
