Trophies and tu-tu's

This weekend was one of those weekends you rev up your engine because it is a go-go type of day; One where you do not stop...until you drop!

Saturday morning we started with closing ceremonies for baseball at one of the local high schools. I stink and forgot to take pictures but at the event the kids were recognized for their accomplishments, received their medals and the all-star teams were announced. It was a really fun way to end the baseball season for the players, with prizes and a fun incentive to come back next year for more.  It was fun to see my kids grow and develop over the season, especially my older two. Chloe was not really into it....every practice or game she would hand her base coach a handful of daisies...but it was good for her to try a new skill out!

Diana was on a majors level team (highest in LL right now), and received a trophy! She was very happy about that, especially since it had a softball player on top. This summer Diana will be practicing twice a week to keep her skills up with her coaches, so it should be fun next season to see where she is at, skill level wise.

After closing ceremonies, we dashed home and had ballet to worry about. Chloe was in two recitals that day, the afternoon and evening performances. The performance story was about a painters dream and each of the classes were a color or story about a painting. Some of the younger classes like Chloe's used props such as paint cans, paint brushes, etc, into their dance to create a fun, whimsical addition to their dances. Chloe's class was the color "Orange." The costume was hands down one of my favorites. She will be defiantly  be wearing this one for Halloween as a Autumn Fairy!

She danced beautifully!
The grandparents and her godmother were able to see her dance.

The whole evening was just wonderful and I am so proud of her and all her hard work with ballet.

Now for a week break and then onto summer ballet camp!
