For our family, summer officially starts with our first summer concert. What better way than to go see "Surfin' Safari" at Temple's City's Wednesday night concerts.

Alyssa has a friend named Alana who moved to Arizona. Alyssa misses her friend to send her a few things. She did an awesome job writing this letter, working to write the lower case letters to the best of her ability and allowing mommy to guide her and give her instructions. I am so proud of her!

As a program for their final day of preschool, Alyssa's class sang "My Favorite Things", "Peanut Butter and Jelly", and "Make New Friends." Mrs Lynne asked each child to come up so they can tell what they plan to be when they grow up and to receive a certificate and a sunflower. Alyssa plans to be a ballet and tap dancer.
Christopher (in the back row on the far left with "I'm a Big Brother" on his shirt), Nate in orange in the front row and Megan sitting behind Alyssa have a have been friends with Alyssa since they were babies!

We have a Promotion Night with our homeschool group. Park Academy. Each family gets up and talks about the achievements of their kids. Then after a potluck dinner, the kids hold a talent show. The middle school aged kids MC and everyone has a chance to recite poems, tell jokes, sing songs or play instruments. Hannah and Alyssa chose to sing a song called "Scarlet Ribbons." The pictures say it all.

Hannah performed four routines which included group tumbling, uneven bars, beam and individual tumbling. Overzealous about the bars, after her own turn was over, she kept asking for another turn before her classmates had a chance to get up on the bars! It's hard to believe that at one time she completely shied away from performing in front of people!
Alyssa performed a ballet and tap routine, group tumbling, bars and beam routine. She actually went up on the beam again after everyone was done to do a few other skills. Alyssa also did an exceptionally beautiful hand stand during the group tumbling routine.
