Can you guess what gave? This. Facebook. Google groups. My cyber outlets gave. I miss them. I miss you. I miss my contact with the world that gets it. I miss your babies. I miss your stories. I'm back (for today) for a start on a recap because the last 3 months are worth recapping. Soo... May- Kiera's recital, Ben's science project and playing together.
Ben rocked through all of the dirt scooping, seed planting, watering, picture taking, writing and gluing that was his science project. By himself! It took a bit of direction but he did it and when he was done he shouted "I did it! Thank you so much mom for helping me do it!" Nice. Dad got his own great moment during the presentation at school. Crowds of older, super cute girls tucked in around Ben "oooing" and "ahhing" over his project. Dave took about 10 pictures of that with a proud little smirk on his face. We all see success in our own way ; )
Kiera's recital-lets just say, I'm really glad that I filmed the dress rehearsal. They did the dance 3 times total. Two were during dress and once, of course for the recital. They became VERY comfortable after the initial stage spook and started pulling all sorts of creativity out of their tightly wound buns. BUT, no one cried, peed or ran off the stage so it was all good. Kiera was amazing and cute as can be (of course) and because I didn't note it, she is the second from the left in the vid. You know, the one with WHITE fluff on her head :)
And then this. To the untrained eye it may look like no big deal, but what I see is my two beautiful children choosing to play together. Without prompting. And it required cooperation. Amazing!
