Today was Abby's first day of her tumbling class:) She couldn't stand still while I tired to get her picture, just too much posing going on!
Doing some warm-ups
They did Itsy Bitsy Spider, Big Fat Gorilla and Tinie Tiny Spider to help stretch their legs ;)
Listening to instructions for the different stations. Abby did such a great job using her listening ears and waiting in line, so proud of her ;)
So the first station was forward rolls, second was hand stands (those two stations had a teacher there, the other three they kiddos had to do on their own) Third was the......crab roll and let's face, #1 Abby probably lost the instructions after she explained how to do a forward roll:) and #2 She hasn't done a "crab walk" for a very long time, if ever, so that is what she is trying to do there ;) Then on to the balance beam, she rocked that ;) and then the trampoline, where they were supposed to do five jumps and go to the forward roll station again. Well she didn't do only five jumps but none of the kiddos stopped jumping after five jumps:) It's just too much fun!!!
I have some great video so hopefully I can get that added soon!

We took advantage of Robin being here and had a date night:) We went and listened to some music at Shadow Lake and then had a great dinner at Nebraska Brewing Company and then some DQ:) Very fun night to get out and be just the two of us (ok well three of us;) )
I don't think these pictures really need captions ;) Connor and Paul just started wrestling the other night. It looks like Paul is giving him a beating in some of the pictures but I assure you not only did Connor love it but he sure dished it out too ;)
THE HULK, all 50lbs of him ;)
So remember the score of great clothes I got at Big Wheels to Butterflies? Well this is her "princess dress" :) She loves how much it swings. She thought she needed to show it off for me a little ;) Then I told her to go grab some shoes so we could go grab lunch......
Not only did she grab some shoes (her new Nikes) but she also grabbed her new wool winter coat and lady bug backpack ;) Now, yes, it is getting close to fall but the temps have still been in the 90's!!!!! No need for the winter coat yet. But thankfully she took it off in Panera and let me hold it on the way back to the car ;)
:) Awesome Abby ;)
So I feel like I have lost my ECE groove a little when I see these pics! #1 I let her start painting with her cute yellow shirt on...........
Phew got the shirt off and when she was trying to paint with the apples and was having a hard time and getting paint on her shirt I realized something else #2 It would be so much easier to paint with apples if I put the corn on the cob thingies in them!!!
I am cutting myself some slack b/c I managed to get my kitchen cleaned up nicely while she was busy painting ;)
Just had to share, it hardly every looks like this, someone is always laying something on the counter or there are dishes from snack or whatever in the sink, crumbs on the table cloth, but not for that afternoon:) For that afternoon, it was wonderfully clean!!!! :)
I think I mentioned on another post that I had found a Pinterest link to 25 breakfasts, well here is another one ;) Pancake and Sausage Bites!! Super yummy and super easy. Make your pancake mix pour into mini muffin tins and then add the cooked sausage!
And of course I love when Abby wakes up from nap and says, "I have a good nap mom? I sweaty."
