Oh boy, I can’t keep up this week and I’ll have to come back later to add more like I did with Grace yesterday, but for now here are a couple things:
Serious goofiness from this girl I tell you: Her soccer season just ended this week. She only got one goal the whole time, but man alive, her exuberance for the team and when other kids made goals made up for it:
Check out how excited she is for this girl:
She was a pretty intense helper out there.
She doesn’t like these girls at all. Can you tell?
Not at all :)
It made us both a little sad to have her end-of-the-year party this week cause I think she’s going to take a break from soccer for a while. She thinks she’s going to do dance, but I think we’re going to slow down a little bit.
Too much going on I tell you.
The party was pretty fun to wrap things up though. I’ll have to post pics. later.
Claire is becoming a good little gymnast too:
She got in a little trouble on that last one since those legs were so darn bent. I LOVE this place she and Grace go to called “Flips.” They are strict as can be (which I love) and teach them so much.
Speaking of strict, that’s one of the things I like very most about this choral organization Grace and Claire are in (the one I talked about yesterday). Boy oh boy that teacher means business.
I love watching Claire’s mouth move while she’s singing.
I know it sounds funny, but she would come home from practices with a big gleam in her eye and tell me how big the sound was. I know she felt the spirit of it all so much in that tender little soul of hers. Here is a video clip of one of the songs. Claire is on the second row kind of in the middle. Once you find her you will wonder how you didn’t see her at first cause to me it’s like she is a 10,000 gigawatt sparkler. I know it’s just cause I’m her mom, but watch how much she moves her mouth. You can just tell she is feeling that whole thing all the way to her bones.
(Please forgive my sub-par video skills…)
Did I mention her goofiness?
It looks like her friend is aware of that below:
Love it. Love that girl!
