First Dance Class

This fall Zoey started ballet and tap lessons.  All summer she mentioned how she wanted to take dance.  The studio we went with, had a 3 day summer dance camp.  This was perfect to see if Zoey really wanted to do dance plus she got to try out three of the top classes for kids her age.

We were able to get her in the ballet/tap class on Mondays which allowed her to still take gymnastics this fall too on Tuesdays.  Our weekly schedule is busy this year!  By Thursday I’m ready to sit at home and do nothing.  Zoey loves her teachers, Ms. Mary Frances and Miss Rachel.  She says she loves tap more than ballet. Personally I'm hoping that will change later.  I do hope she sticks with dance as she gets older and continues to practice.  I would love for her to see it through until she is out of high school.

Ready for her first dance class.

Amazes me how she knows how to do this without any classes yet!

Snow Day 2015

All Winter Zoey talked about snow and how she wanted a snow day, to make snow angel, build a snowman, etc.  We would always explain to her that we would have to wait and see if it snowed and how it might not snow. 

The end of February we were forecasted to get 5-6 inches of snow.  I had major doubts.  Good thing I was wrong!  Zoey was so excited about the snow!  She couldn’t wait to get out in it and play.  I was able to hold her off until it had accumulated several inches.

First Hair Cut

After putting it off for as long as I could, Zoey got her first hair cut in January.  I was so afraid that if I had her hair trimmed, the curls would fall out.  We have been lucky that her hair has grown fast and even!  I made it three years before I got it trimmed.  I was a little nervous how she would do and was afraid she would cry or throw a fit.  She did AWESOME!  We went to Phipps Salon, B and I both go there, where Melissa cut her hair.  Bragging moment.  Everyone there was so impressed with how well she behaved and sat/stood still. Typically three year olds do not do as well.  Her hair was so long, Melissa had her stand instead of sit in the chair to trim it.  When it’s wet and brushed out it’s almost down to her waist.

4D Farms

We headed back to 4D Farms again during the Fall.  We took the nieces with us again.  Zoey took a LONG time to warm up this year.  She got freak out by a blow up pumpkin.  It was really windy that day and she was afraid it was coming for her.  After she got used to it, she had a blast!

Caldonia Farms

Oops, got a little out of order!  I forgot we went to two farms/pumpkin patches this year!  We went to Caldonia Farms with Dennis and Nona one weekend while we were in Aberdeen.  The farm is just outside of Columbus.  I had never been, Dennis and Nona took Zoey last year when she was with them one weekend.  It is a beautiful place.  So much for the little ones to do and incredible section of different pumpkins, gourds, mums, and more!
