 Today we celebrate God blessing our family with Carys Elizabeth.
 To know Carys is to know innocence,



a true girl in every sense of the word,

and a true servant.
Our family has been so blessed by this tender-hearted, thoughtful, loving little girl.  Each day with her is a joy.  She brings laughter to all of us with her silly sense of humor.  It is hard to believe that today she is 8.  I look back at these pictures and can not believe how fast the time has gone.  I pray for her future and know that God is going to use her in might ways for His glory.  I don't know if I have ever met a child that loves the way she does and I know that the love she has comes straight form the Lord.

Saturday ended the "official" dance season.  (We still have one competition left.) It was a long 2 days between rehearsal and recital, but so worth it.  Rob said it best, "You spend all this money and time and think should we be doing this, then you see your daughter on stage..."  And it all becomes worth every penny and minute!  I know I am a little bias but God has truly given Carys the gift of dance!  She is a beautiful dancer and absolutely adores it!
I love the friends she (and I) make during the year.
 A friend from house church also dances at the studio.  After she got done performing Carys met her backstage with a big hug and encouraging words.

 "Shooting Stars" and their fabulous teacher!
 Sass much!?

Carys and Allie have danced together for 4 years now.  (This is them in their ballet costumes.  This was an absolute beautiful dance!) They have such a great time together.  Her mom has become a great friend as well!
What a GREAT year!  Here's to many more!
