Why did I wait another month to finally post the pictures? Well, I meant to have Jade tell me the story and put it in her words. After so much time had passed, the story- according to Jade- was just about what was written in the first paragraph. So much for her being a gifted story teller. :)

Jade and Scott went to the Peking Acrobats for a daddy-daughter date. Jade absolutely loved it and thought it was awesome. Scott had been wanting to see it but Ivy was too young. So I stayed home with Ivy and played games. I'm glad Scott got to see it and glad that the two of them had a very good time.

Jade had her first gymnastics meet and she LOVED it. It was the same week as her dance concert so I was anxious to see which one she preferred most. (I'm hoping to lighten her load a bit next year by having her pick gymnastics or dance). When I asked her which she liked best- performing or competing- she answered "Both- the SAME!" Oh great- watch them conflict next year.
She is in Pre-team Level 3. In her inner squads, she has to score a 34 to move up to Level 4. (The Pre-team Level 4's have to score a 34 to get to travel). I'm glad Jade doesn't have the potential of traveling this year. She's really got enough on her plate.
I think we were all surprised at how well Jade did at her meet. She's been trying harder to focus on exactly what the coach is telling her. In fact, so much so that the coach has emailed us about it.
Look how straight her legs are! She still needs to work on pointing her toes with energy, but she'll get there.

"Grandma E" was an amazing woman. I feel so blessed to have known her for the past 9 years. It was always fun visiting her and hearing stories of an earlier time. My favorite visit was last Christmas when we learned about her mom's involvement in the Golden Spike Annual Pageant. Because of that, we were able to watch Grandpa this past year perform.

It has been quite a while since I entered a picture in the weekly contests. But, when I saw this week's theme I had to. My girls just had a dance performance- and though I'm still learning about taking pictures in the DARK, I did get a few fun ones. But, this is my favorite one of Jade. (I also have a favorite one of Ivy, but I like this one just a bit better).
