Lucia and Rose weren’t happy with their outfits on the first day of school, so they had us take more pictures.
I previously posted videos of their dances, but today the girls had their actual dance recitals. Everything went great.
Lucia and Rose have their dance recitals this weekend. We aren’t allowed to record the actual recital, but we did record the dress rehearsal.
Lucia and Rose celebrated the sacrament of First Communion this morning at St. Francis. Lucia is in 3rd grade and Rose is in 1st grade, but the church allowed them to attend Faith Formation together this year.
This afternoon Lucia, Rose and I went ice skating. Rose and I went for a walk yesterday and enjoyed playing on the ice, so we paid another visit today with Lucia. Lucia made a lot of progress on the skates and Rose enjoyed playing on the ice in her shoes.
Lucia and Rose are both preparing for their First Communion this year, which starts with First Reconciliation. They attended this morning, with Susan. Both girls were excited to go and enjoyed the whole experience.
Not sure why this picture was taken, but it is a suitable time to post about the school year is going for Lucia and Rose this year. It is going well. We never pushed reading much with our homeschooling and we knew they would have a lot of catching up to do. They were both barely reading before the school year started. A couple of months into it, they are doing great. They each work with the reading teacher at their school and we can see their tremendous progress and some of the new techniques they are learning.
