For these moments

20 Jun

On Friday morning,  Ella’s dance camp had a performance so we could see what she had been learning all week.  The teacher choreographed and taught the class a two minute dance to a song from Alvin and the Chipmunks.  It was a cute little dance, perfect for their ability.  Each of the students showed their newly acquired tumbling skills.  In her ballet class this spring, the same teacher tried to teach Ella a somersault and she couldn’t do it, but Friday she could!  Each day she came home with a little craft, and took a nap. Overall, I think camp was a success.  Sophie is most excited to have her best friend back in her morning routine.

I am grateful for

:: a husband who loves and adores all four of his girls

:: girls who are so happy to be together again for their morning coloring time

:: family Candy Land time

:: game time that teaches valuable taking-turn lessons

:: the phrase “Look-it, Mama” because it means they want to show me everything, all the time.

:: the coo of the turtle dove couple who has had their nest in our chimney since before we lived here.

:: a babe who learned some rockin’ dance moves this weekend

:: the same babe who also learned to clap this weekend

For these moments, these pauses, the grace of God in the moment, I am so thankful.

If you are inspired, leave me your grateful moments in the comments, either link or list.  I would love to see them!  Happy Day, friends!

    So sweet. Can’t wait for my own babies to start saying, “Look-it, Mama”
