Let's Dance!

We had a great day today! Kameron and Kennedy's school puts on an annual dance, and since I signed up to help at events with the PTA, they asked me to help... then they asked me to be in charge! I was a little nervous since I've never been to one of these before, but I had lots of help and it turned out GREAT! We did a Welcome to Paradise theme and we decorated the gym and cafeteria in a Hawaiian theme. There were probably 500-600 people there... I tried to count a couple times but... everyone kept moving! LOL

Kameron took off with his friends... I saw them running around a few times and they stopped by for goofy pictures; and Kennedy ran off with her friends too. I was in charge of taking family and friend pictures, and Kennedy showed up in my line several times with different kids... some of them were a lot older than her! Haha! She's obviously very well loved. :o) Keeghan loved the dancing and was super excited to see his teacher there, turns out that she has a daughter at their school, too. Frank hung out with me while I took pictures and kept track of the kids as much as possible.

Kellsey was not feeling so hot, so she stayed home with Kassidy, who wasn't interested in going anyway. I think she just has a little head cold, but we thought we better not take her out in the cold if we could help it. Hopefully she'll be feeling better in the morning.  

Tomorrow we will be getting up bright and early to take Kennedy to her first dance competition in Denver! We are all so excited to see her on the big stage, and she can't wait to get out there and dance. She's been practicing hard with her group and they're looking good. :o)

I have some pictures from the dance tonight and I'll have pictures from the competition tomorrow, I'm sure, but for now, I am beat and I'm going to bed so I can wake up early! ;o) Hope you all had a nice Friday!

Out of curiosity do you often leave Kassidy with the little ones? Or one of the little ones anyways? I don't mean that to sound as judgmental as it's sounding. The reason I'm asking is because I've left Natalie and Kaitlyn home together for maybe an hour, but I haven't left CJ with her and obviously not Alyssa. I am sure she would do fine. She does a lot for CJ, but she would totally hate me if CJ had an accident while I was gone and she had to clean him up, lol.

Wow I didn't realize Kassidy was old enough to be left home alone let alone also be in charge of the little one.
Did you hear about the boy that was denied communion because he had DS?

Know that the Lord is always there for you! Praying hard!
2 Samuel 22:2-3, 7 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. (7) In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

Emily is certified by the Red Cross to sit and has been sitting for over a year for several families (that was how she got lots of $ for Australia), and she was 12 in October. We are so thankful to be able to have date nights AND to not have to schlep kids to run errands anymore, lol!
