Season's End....

Despite the snow that fell this morning, it seems that most of our winter activities are coming to a close. Along with high school wrestling finishing last weekend (although Josh started club wrestling this week), the girls had their climatic school performance this week, and their first ever basketball season came to a close.

Even after seeing the performance, I'm not sure of what the title of the second grade performance was, or even exactly what it was about, but the girls were very enthusiastic about it. Jaelyn, who was a raccoon, pulled off her one line without a hitch: "Hey, what's up???" Such a star:)  Kaia declined the part she was offered, because she had three separate lines to memorize. Funny how she is the most dramatic of my four kids, but the shyest when it comes to actually performing up front. The girls loved singing the songs they have been practicing for a couple months now, and I have to admit I have heard Mike whistling some of the catchy tunes around the house in the days since.
The girls doing an Oscar-worthy performance of being asleep. They are over the left shoulder of the bird; Kaia squished in the center, Jaelyn in front of her (click on photo for a better look).

Photo session afterwards. Jaelyn made her own raccoon ears:)
Saturday was to be the basketball tournament, but we had a bye the first round, and then we played a team that beat us earlier in the season, so we only had one game. The whole family was there cheering the girls on, and Kaia even made one of the only two baskets our team scored. Although Kaia missed this  basket, I do love the confidence she exhibited. They learned a lot about team work over the course of the season.
Team Lightning Bolts (girl power!)...
Next stop track, soccer, and gymanstics. To be continued...

They are so precious in their school performance. And I love Kaia's confidence on the court. Way to go, girls!
