Dance Update- sad to announce

sadley enough the girls have decided to switch dance studio's for the upcoming year. It is a bitter sweet decision on their part. Bitter because it is hard to leave a good friends studio that has taught them since they did their first duo at age 4.They have been very unhappy & wanted to quit dance do to older girls belittling comments to them. They asked if they could go to a studio where they have a few friends that dance.
Scott of course is liking the decision because it will save him a ton of money especially now that we had to pay for his dads entire funeral since his dad lost everything in he bad economy. So what is the sweet part you ask? I havn't seen my girls so excited about dance since they were 5 yrs. old. They love their summer class and have learned a lot of new things. I of course am extatic that for the first time since they were 7 they get Tumbling again. Kenzie about has her Ariel.In fact she does she just gets nervous.
I truly hope the girls have made a right decision.We will miss Alexis & her no doubt about it best cheoreography ever.But To see my girl this happy makes it worth it all. It will be good financially on us as well. They will finish with FCDA of a July performance. We do not know if we will stay at the new studio but they really want the chance for a change. And since it is not about what we want we have decided to let them make the decision.It has caused me much stress but they are like two girls taking dance for the first time again.
We will Miss you Alexis unless they decide to switch back.

my first 5k

So by now you all know I have lost 23 pounds on weight watchers. I still have more to loose but I just completed my first 5 k. I never thought I could do one. I  speed walked because of my knees. I did 3.1 miles in 40 minutes pushing Crew in a stroller. that was good for me. The whole family did it with me for support. MaKayla beat us all because she ran. She beat me by 5 minutes. And I beat Scott & McKenzie by 15 minutes. It was a good tension release for our family. After the past week.
