Dancing Queen...

Ella started dance class last night at Heinze Dance Academy. She loves it!! Here is my baby all ready for class with her new dance bag.

She even had her hair all fixed up. Thanks Kelley!

Ready to go.

Checking everyone out.

We could look through the glass...the pictures aren't the greatest, but man she had fun. She's in the middle in her Hannah Montana leotard...

Beth is her teacher and Ella is the shortest one on the far side of the circle.

Miss Beth and Ella on the right sitting down which is what Beth told them to do. She did such a good job. We are very proud of her.

Following along to streches.

...and more streches

Ballerina poses...

At the end Beth told them all to huddle around her and listen. They all love her so much! She is wonderful with the kiddos. Ella is what I would consider 5th from the left. You can see her little face looking up at her teacher. She can't wait til next class. When we were walking out she said, "Momma I want to go again!" We are really happy she is enjoying this and doing so well with structured learning.

Fun in August...

Kisses through the door...yes, my door is always this dirty. I wonder why? :)

Hi, big sister!

Prayer Request!!!

Our friends, the Weiman's, have a little boy that needs your thoughts and prayers! He was diagnosed last July with neuroblastoma. He and his family have been bravely battling this disease for over a year now, and now his cancer has returned. They must travel to Philadelphia to receive further treatments. Please keep them in your prayers to help fight this battle.


I haven't had much time to post lately with so much going on, but I thought it was important to get as many people as we can praying for Ethan and his family!

Thank you!
