Kassidy's First Piano Recital

Ok, first off I don't have pictures. How sad!! But, there is a DVD, that we can get later. Anyway, Kassidy played in her first piano recital last night. She did so good. She is so funny. She was a little shy, so Grandma Bonnie helped her introduce her song and herself. Then she started to play and froze a few measures in, so I took her her music and she finished. She still did so good considering she is 4! She is quite talented and we are very proud of her! She was able to even get a couple of awards at the end from competing at a festival. She was super happy!
Samantha and Haley also played, and again, did well. They also got several awards from all of the adjudications that they have done in the last couple of months.
I am sooooo glad that this adjudication season is OVER! It is so stressful! Worth it in the end though!

Young at Art

Samantha and Haley got to perform at their schools Young at Art program at one of the high schools here. It was the biggest version of an Elementary school talent show I had ever seen! In fact, the talent was pretty good. Haley was first to go on since she was the only Kindergartner in the program. It was so cute to watch her walk across the stage. She looked so LITTLE! In fact, as soon as she came out people were "aahh look at her she is so little" and making noises to that effect. In fact, one guy behind us made us laugh so hard because he said (and not quietly) "she's so little is she going to be able to get up on that bench?" It was so funny! Haley told us afterwards that she heard everyone making sounds and she thought it was funny too. They both did really well!

Again, sorry no pictures. I still don't have a camera, and mom and dad didn't think to bring theirs. BUMMER!

Sports update

All three girls are having a great time in soccer this spring! Nate is coaching Samantha's team and is having a blast. His head is getting a little swollen since we are only half way through the season and the parents have already asked him to keep the team together and keep coaching them for the seasons to come! They LOVE him, and he is doing a great job. One girl on his team even told him she has already learned more this season than she did in the last 4! He really enjoyed hearing that!
Haley's team is doing well. She really likes to play keeper, but is also really good at Forward because she is one of the fastest kids on the team!
Kassidy is quite the little powerhouse. She hasn't gone a game yet without scoring a goal! This week she even scored 3!
Rhett is dying to play himself. He gets to practice with Kassidy's team every week...and he keeps up with them! Next Spring, he will be old enough to play on his own team.
Samantha also starts softball today. We had a good time yesterday taking the kids out to work on some basics with her. All of the kids wanted a turn to bat, and every one of them hit the ball--being pitched to them! EVEN KASSIDY AND RHETT!! Wow, it is so much fun to watch them play sports!!


This past weekend was so BUSY! We (my mom and I) had our music festival in Preston. It was a great success, and I am totally glad it is over! Samantha and Haley, and yes, even Kassidy played the piano in it. Samantha and Haley took 1st place for their Duet in their division and Kassidy took 2nd place for her solo. They all did so well and I am proud of them! I would put pictures on here, but we still don't have a camera, so I don't have any...DANG!

Here comes girl #4!

I had my ultrasound today, and low and behold, we are having another girl. I feel a little bad for Rhett, but I am quickly over it. He was such a holy TERROR during the ultrasound that the calmness of a girl is quite all right. Yes, I know, it may catch up with us in the teenage years. Only problem now is a name. We had a boys name all picked out, since we have had it since our second child, but a girls name proves to be much more difficult.
Here we go again...!!
