Welcome everyone!!! This is my first post, and I really wish I would have started this long ago....but none the less, this has been the summer before my baby starts kindergarten, and we have had a great time!!! We have done nothing big, but lots of small things together and it has been so precious!
We started the summer with Sydneys 1st dance recital. Sports Mania 2009 with Louisburg School of Dance at Louisburg College Auditorium. She danced on the "big stage." She did two dances ballet: Hop Scotch Polka and Tap: Take me out to the ballgame. I am so proud of her, she did a great job and my family was in tears watching them, they are so cute and it warms your heart because whether they remember their steps or not they are having a great time just dancing around while the crowd cheers.
We spent our 4th of July at Emerald Point and had a great time....Sydney was a little hesitant of the slides at first but once she got started there was no stopping her. We stayed at the park most of the day and then followed up with fireworks at the Mudcats. Sydney was so tired she fell asleep during the end of the fireworks...(the princess needs her beauty rest no matter what is going on around her)....
We also had a great time at the Museum of Life and Science with friends this summer. Sydney loves the butterfly house and really wonders why no matter how hard she tries, she just can't get those butterflys to land on her hands, (no matter how HARD SHE TRIES to be quiet)! Sydney also loves the bears at the museum and the train, but is much like her mommy in the fact that she prefers a cold day over a hot day so she would much rather enjoy the museum on a fall day not in july when it is 95degrees.
As you can see....my little one is very hot!!!!
We have been to the park so many times the summer, we love the park, the swings are our favorite! We tried a new park this summer in Cary, they have lots of things for bigger kids to climb on. Sydney is still not sure about the climbing in the spider web....she likes to keep two feet on the ground.
The highlight of our summer has been fine tuning our swimming skills. We have spent alot of days at Knightdale Park and Rec. We started out in level 1 and by the end of the summer we advanced to level 2 ( in mommys opionion should have been in level 3) but none the less she did so great!! She jumped off the diving board each friday and each time was the only one in her class that did it by herself and needed no coaxing!!! Now there has to be someone at the bottom of the board, but she is now swimming like a little fish!!!
And like all good things, the summer has come to an end...and now it is Kindergarten here I come!!!!
