WIR: VBS & Lots of other stuff...

OK, here's another quick week in review...

Last week, Sassy attended VBS at Chapel Hill with several of her friends from the mommy group. She had so SO much fun. The theme was Hometown Nazareth: Where Jesus Was A Kid. She learned a lot, made some new friends, and had a blast!

I could not have done it without the help of my friend, Alyssa. She helped me out at the beginning of the week while I had ARC Instructor Training. I had previously been a Red Cross instructor, but let my certification lapse after college, so I had to get re certified to teach for PAT and some other local organizations. Anyway, I dropped Sassy off early in the morning to make it to my training on time. Alyssa carted all the kids to VBS, picked them up, took them to Sonic, took them swimming, made them lunch, entertained them with crafts, etc. A HUGE thanks to her!

I hosted a Thirty-One Gifts party Wednesday evening at our house. OMG, I realized how small my house is! I had a really good turnout, and I felt so bad that I didn't have room for everyone to be comfortable! I can't wait for all of our stuff to come in!

Friday, Tink & I joined Sassy at VBS for a picnic lunch. Sassy was so proud of all of her goodies. It was great!

Friday evening, following an afternoon of swimming, we celebrated the end of T-Ball at the team picnic at Main Street Park. We did a potluck, and the kids were thrilled to receive their trophies... even our injured friends!

Saturday, we met with a few PAT families down in Winfield for a park play date. I love their park! It was hotter than blazes, really too hot to be playing outside, but we still had a good time.

Sassy wasn't feeling great because, and I was trying to cheer her up. She's been asking me for-ever to use my camera (she has a keen interest in photography... that's my girl!), so I finally let her try it out. I set the settings for her and showed her how to do it. She could barely hold the camera up and reach the button at the same time, but here are her first attempts at DSLR photography... not bad!

We all packed picnics and enjoyed each other's company.

After the park, we all attended Miss J's 5th birthday at the roller rink in Winfield. Neither of the girls had been roller skating before.

It was pretty EPIC.

Tink was a mess on wheels. Thank goodness they allowed us parents to go out without skates and help. After a while, Tink decided it was much more enjoyable to just run around like a crazy kid, sans wheels. Sassy & LMB rocked their crazy roller skating socks like rock stars!

Even Graycop got out there and showed us what he's made of!

It was a really fun time!

Sunday, Tyler had a side job and the girls and I went to LMB and LuLu's dance recital through The Movement Authority at Century II. The girls did great!

LMB performed a jazz/tap routine to Hot, Hot, Hot.

LuLu performed a tap routine {as a pink bunny} to Animal Crackers in My Soup. It was adorable!

I wish I would have been able to get more pictures of the girls afterwards, including the adorable pillowcase dresses my girls were wearing from the Leah LaRae sale we attended, but my camera battery ran out, and I had no back-up on me. Gasp!

Which means there are also no pictures of our {delicious} celebratory trip to Orange Leaf, either.

After the recital and frozen treat, we headed home to meet our soccer coaches and bring them back to the house. I haven't scared them off with a million pictures thus far, but we've been having a great time! Looking forward to the remainder of the week.
