Scotland Yard

The kids have played SO many games that it was time to teach them some new ones. I got out Scotland Yard and taught it to them. They loved it! I'm constantly surprised how these kids are able to learn and have fun playing these adult games, but they do!

Outside Fun

The girls continue playing every chance they get. For the circumstances, I've actually been quite impressed with how well these 4 girls have done being with each other all day everyday. They are constantly making up new games, dancing, and finding new ways to pass the time.

The Taming of the Chinchilla

Brynlee has been spending more and more time with her chinchilla and finally she has been able to hold her and carry her around a little bit. It's fun to watch them together. Brynlee is definitely a caretaker at heart.

Zoom Dance Class

Our dance studio put videos online that all the dancers could watch and dance to. They decided to do a zoom class for each level. We happened to have church keys so we headed over so the girls could dance and tumble in a space big enough to feel somewhat normal. We spent all afternoon there and the girls loved it.

Baptism Posters

While we are getting the house ready to sell we have found lots of things that are hard to take with us. These posters were signed at Brayden and Brooklyn's baptisms by the people that came. We took pictures so we could always remember them!

The Last Dance

This made me cry. I was cleaning up the craft room and I found Brooklyn's board. None of us were prepared for Covid. It started off by having school cancelled for 2 weeks and just snowballed from there. We continue to hold out hope that some part of the dance season will be salvageable, but it's not looking good. It broke my heart to see the moments where my kids are trying to understand what's going on. Brooklyn didn't know that her last dance competition would be her last one. The last time she would get to dance her solo and team routines on a stage. Everyone has lost something they girls are no different.

Diamond Art Painting

For Easter all of the girls got diamond art paintings. I let them pick out the ones they wanted a few weeks ago and they've been eagerly waiting ever since. Now they have been working on them round the clock and we can't wait to see what they look like when they are done!
