First Ballet Class

hoping our new little ballerina will dance to her dreams and live by these words:

I Hope You Dance


 I hope you never lose your sense of wonder

You get your fill to eat but always hunger

May you never take one single breath for granted

God forbid love leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance


I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

Never settle for the path of least resistance

Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking

Loving might be a mistake but it's worth making

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter

When you come close to selling out reconsider

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the chance to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance

(by  Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers)


Grow and Glow

We just celebrated Brady's first birthday - I made a keepsake "Fire Fly" Mason Jar for his special day and wanted to share it with you. 

I had drawn a mason jar in black ink and using a yellow ink pad, finger-printed each of the birthday party guests.  I then asked each guest to make a "Fire Fly" out of their fingerprint and sign their name below it.  Everybody enjoyed making funny little fire flys inspite of the fact they had one yellow inked finger for the rest of the day!

Our little neice calls butterflies "flutter-flies"!  They are everywhere  - even ones with broken wings are still going strong!
