Ballerinas

The girls started ballet classes this week at Kijabe (thanks to a mom who has found a teacher to come once a week for all station kids interested).
Meredith couldn't completely enjoy the first class as all she could talk about was how she could not find her other ballet shoe.  But she has worn her ballet costume everyday this week.  Meredith says she learned how to "walk on my tippy toes."  Meredith does not like the name pumpkin or snickerdoodle, she says you can call her "chicken and rice?"  
Amelia is singing in church on Sunday with her classmates.  She is learning positions 1-4 in ballet. For classics day in art class, she drew a nice picture of Charlie Brown (I guess he is history now).  She also told me the other day she likes when she pulls a scab off and there is skin underneath.

This looks like great fun little girls. Dance away. How was soccer Amelia? All of your Friess aunts and uncles played that too.
hugs and kisses, Grammie
