Busy Week!!

You might remember I came home from the hospital a week ago Thursday.  (Almost) just in time to begin the mad dash to the end of the school year.  Yeah, I missed my brother Jonathan's Ballroom Dance Concert, which is too bad.  I love dancing.

But I did make it to Joseph's band concert that night,

 then some soccer games on Saturday...
and a big NICU reunion for the hospital where I was born.  Lots of fun seeing people there, and we even got to see a Lifeflight helicopter!
My brothers thought it was really cool.  I did, too, but I've been in one and Mom says that one ride is enough to cover the whoooole family.  I guess they're out of luck (or in luck if you ask Mom).

We started off the next week with a Cubapolis race at Michael's pack meeting.  We had lots of fun.  I think Michael had the best pit crew there!

Then on Tuesday of next week, we went to Matthew's choir concert at the high school, and then it was Thursday again.

Thursday was crazy!!!  We started in the morning with MY performance.

Yeah, my school did a dance festival.  It was so much fun!  Everyone was so excited (Mom might talk more about that below, this is my turn.)  We just all got out there and showed off our very best moves. The theme was "Michael Jackson" and I got to wear a shiny glove, it tasted pretty good, too.

Then we went over to Westfield where Michael and Andrew were "Getting Down With Mama Goose."  I've never heard nursery rhymes like those, but they were fun!

Thursday night was the big choir concert at Timberline.  Man, those kids can sing!  Joseph had some fun songs that I really liked.  I danced along with them.  It was kinda crazy.

One of the things the kids really like is that if they're in one of the audition choirs, they can come back again and again and sing with their group.
Matthew got to go up and sing "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" with the chamber group, and Deborah and Jonathan sang "Prayer of the Children" with the larger choir.

Everyone NOT in concert black is an alumni.
I don't know how many high school choirs can
draw like this.  This is MIDDLE SCHOOL.

Simply amazing to listen as 150+ kids, many of them having not practiced with this group for years, sang beautifully this wonderful hymn.

Oh, and before the choir concert, I also went to a baseball game.  Then on Saturday, I went to two more soccer games.

Yeah, by Sunday, I was kinda bushed.  But I had fun sitting on the bench between my two brothers.  I think they liked it, too.

Oh, and I also got my four-year-old check-up (a little early).  I'm almost 34 pounds and am 37 inches tall!  I'm growing up!!
