Soccer and Dance

Joseph and Maddy are staying busy!  Maddy started another year or dance class last week and Joseph started another season of soccer!  Maddy's class is a combination of ballet, tap, and gymnastics.  She was so excited about going to dance class, but once she realized it wasn't a "mommy and me" type class and that she would go in all by herself, she was upset.  She spent her first class this year crying and refusing to participate.  Hopefully she will gain confidence and this week will go better!  She sure loves her ballet and tap shoes.  :)

Joseph's first soccer practice went well.  He's most excited that his very best buddy is on the same team this year and that's helping him have a love for soccer this season!  Joe has been working w/ him at home on soccer skills and understanding the game.  Joseph isn't aggressive when it comes to fighting for the ball, but hopefully with some practice he will get in there and score some goals!!!  He sure had a blast w/ lots of laughing at his first practice last week!  He is the one in the green shirt below...

This is Maddy's dance teacher "Ms. Mary" and the other 3 girls that are in her class.  She was smiling and having a great time until it was time to actually go in the class by herself w/ the teacher.  Her teacher is super sweet.

First Day of School

Joseph and Madelyn had a GREAT first day at preschool this past Tuesday!  Maddy was very excited to go to school this year.  When we asked her what she was most excited about, she said wearing her backpack, snack time, and playing on the playground.  :)  Joseph likes routine and consistency and was nervous about starting this new school year.  He was concerned about being in a new class and asked if he could go back to his 3 year old class w/ his teachers from last year.  I reassured him that he would have lots of fun in his new class.  Thankfully once he saw lots of familiar faces and friends, he was happy about going on into the class.  I hope they both have a wonderful school year!
