First Dance Recital

Sara Beth's first dance recital was May 19, 2012.
She took from Ms. Alyson at Repeat Perfomance in a 3&4 combo class.(tap,ballet,tumbling)
The tap routine was her first performance...a little shy and slow moving to "Shake, Rattle and Roll"

End of year School Program

The 3 and 4 year olds at Broadmoor had a end of school program May 10, 2012. The 4 year olds sang most of the songs but Mahlon and Sara Beth's classes got to join in on  a few!
Sara Beth was a little shy and nervous...

And Mahlon jumped right in motions and all!!
So cute to watch them perform!!

Run for Hope

Our Church Madison Heights held its Second Annual Run for Hope 5k and we made it a family event!
Wesley ran for real and placed 2nd in his age group and 6th overall! I ran walked with the twins in the double jogger! I was pushing close to 100lbs with the two of them so I was just happy I finished!! I think I finished in 29 minutes and my goal was to finish of course but if I could do it in under 30 minutes I would be happy...I'm happy! The kids couldn't understand why I couldn't go any faster!! Ugh! There were some massive hills!!!!

 Wesley bascially lapping us!!

Mahlon was getting ready for his first 1 mile fun run!!!

 Family Pic after the 5k to show I did it and survived!!
 Mahlon at the start line!
Almost to the finish line...he held his daddy's hand the entire 1 mile!! We were so proud of him!!!

Wesley and Cheerleader Sara Beth getting his 2nd place medal in his age group! 
This was a fun family event!! Next time I won't be pushing a double jogger though!! Maybe I can be the one doing the one mile fun run!
