Lucia and Rose weren’t happy with their outfits on the first day of school, so they had us take more pictures.
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.
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.
Rose’s class had a music concert. The first grade sang four songs, which took about 20 minutes. It was great.
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.
