Rose’s Soccer Practice
Rose is playing 8U soccer this year with West Des Moines Soccer. I am her team’s coach. Susan took a few pictures at practice tonight.
Today was RACE Day at the girls’ school. RACE stands for Run Around Crossroads Elementary.
Pine Tree Island
Our house is on a corner that is structured like a cul-de-sac. In the center of the cul-de-sac is a big pine tree that the neighborhood kids have fun playing in.
Second Day of School
Lucia and Rose weren’t happy with their outfits on the first day of school, so they had us take more pictures.
First Day of School
Late Summer Happenings
Rose 7th Birthday
Today we celebrated Rose’s birthday, a day late because yesterday was a busy day.
Rose at 7 is a lot of fun. She and Lucia still spend 99% of their time together and get along extraordinarily well. Rose’s ideal schedule is waking up at 8 and going to be at 10. She likes waffles and bagels for breakfast, mac and cheese for lunch, and walking tacos for dinner. This past year she did dance and soccer, and loved the 2nd grade.
Dance Recital Pictures
I previously posted videos of their dances, but today the girls had their actual dance recitals. Everything went great.
Lucia and Rose Dance
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 First Communion
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.
