Cadence's Poem

Where Is My Baby?????

First of all ... I am not too good with change. All of a sudden there are HUGE changes to updating this blog that I am trying to navigate ... I am not good with this ... not good at all! I may rant about it later, but for now, just a quick update.

 OMG ... it appears that Cadence has grown up overnight! All of a sudden she is taking off ...

She spent Monday skipping ... got to 8 repetitions. She was determined to go higher. By the next day, she was up to 40. I LOVE her stamina.

She is reading like a trouper ... notes in her lunch, my texts, the little magazine subscriptions she gets. All of a sudden she has become this almost completely independent person. I am happy and sad all at the same time. It is a joy to see her flourish and I am such a proud mama, but ... I grieve the wee little darling that only days ago seemed to need me for most things. SIGH!!!

Today Cadence presented her poem and was once again chosen to present it in the gym. This time, she's decided she wants to go for it! Way to go Cadence! I love that you've got your confidence back! Should I be able to figure out all this blog stuff ... you might get to see the poem and skipping videos! I know, you're on the edge of your seats ....

Easter Weekend

Preparing the eggs:

Testing the cream:

Double fisted:

Hangin' with the cuz:

A night on the town:

The egg hunt:

The bunny has landed:

Able to read Peter Cottontail's

Game time with uncle Steve:

As always, a great weekend with family! I am so fortunate and thankful to be able to continue to share part of the traditions I grew up with, with Cadence. It's what I looked forward to for a long time .......

Earth Hour

The prep work:

Dealing in the 'dark':

I can still see the twinkle in her eye:

The winner ... the 'twinkle' wasn't from the candlelight ... she had been up to something:

The 'flash' light dance:

It was nice to spend some time away from any of our technical distractions!
Hope everyone else enjoyed some quiet time ...
