Part of my motherhood dreams came true the day that Sawyer started taking dance classes. However, the first day of class wasn't necessarily dreamy. Being consumed with my pregnancy and foggy preggo brain I missed the memo that class was starting and that Sawyer needed ballet shoes, tap shoes, and proper dance attire. Sawyer's class is at 9:30, so early that morning I dragged the kids to Target and got a leotard and some tights and figured she could get through the first day of class with her pink TOMS on. I was so wrong. Sawyer got to her class, realized she wasn't properly equipped and had a complete melt down that she didn't have her own tap shoes. We left class (without even participating), spent $100 on leotards and shoes, and Sawyer was the happiest little dancer around. I love this tiny dancer and it makes me so thrilled that she enjoys it so much. Being this girl's mama is so much fun.
Another perk of dance? Sawyer gets to dance with her best friend.
Summer 2012 was a good one, and it was sad seeing it end. But with every end comes a new beginning, and this year Sawyer was starting school at a new preschool. School with Sawyer has been a great experience - or both her and for me. When I was in preschool I cried every day when my mom dropped me off...I feared Sawyer would follow in my footsteps. Fortunately for me, Sawyer loves school, she never wants to miss class, and she is always excited to see her friends and her teachers. I am actually a little lost when Sawyer is at school, it doesn't feel right having one of my kids missing. Since Sawyer loves school so much I do too; it is fun watching your child grow & learn.
Before the first day of school we had to go to a preschool orientation. Of course we took pictures. And of course, Harper didn't want her picture taken.
First Day of School 2012
I can't believe this girl will be going to school next year...
So sad to say goodbye to summer but so happy that these little ladies are mine regardless of the season.
