Just a Jolly Look at June

Really, there almost isn’t a point in posting a stand alone June blog post after my run down of the days of crazy. June is always busy but with Ken in charge of a major project at work that kept us near home and cancelled most of our exciting and travel required plans… not so much on the spontaneous and crazy. You can read all about the crazy days HERE, and the new baby in the house HERE.20180606_145647

In fact, June is VERY photo heavy what with the new pet in the house. So there is an additional MOMO post to follow this one HERE.20180616_001223

Of course Neko-chan still got love.IMG_20180622_091733_479

We did get back on our walk to the YMCA for morning programming and swimming, etc routine. The twins are too old for club (in fact, Emanuel is on the verge of too old himself) but the other 3 are finding it entertaining. We added run club on Thursdays during the day for the oldest 2 (hopefully they will run a 5K or 2 by the end of summer) and dance Friday nights for Miss Echo.20180622_161133

We enjoyed life, June seems to have been a month of joy. It is nice to look back at it as the temperatures drop.20180613_121815

Dance Baby Dance

As mentioned in the birthday post for Echo HERE, she started her first ever dance class this summer. It was a huge success. One of her favourite staff members ran the class, and she had nothing but fun.

Miss Grace

We not only go the necessary dance shoes, but also picked up a little purple dance costume for class wear. Which of course was a huge hit.

With summer plans and such the YMCA decided to have TWO dance recitals. The first, luckily, the Friday before Karyn was to drive home so Echo had 4 people in the audience just for her. Ken, myself, Karyn and Trinity all came to watch.

Echo was the only pupil from her class to make that recital so she danced with Grace TWICE! They ran threw the performances twice to give everyone a good chance to see their child and take pictures.20180810_170629

Then at the end they received a little certificate… and some snacks! It was a lot of fun.20180810_171602

The following week there was a second performance in the gym. This time Echo was not the only one in her class AND her brothers came to show support!20180815_180957

It was fun to watch the dance again, and Echo was all fired up to sign up for the next session which runs until Christmas season! I will be sure to share images from that one as well!20180810_170627
