jenkins reunion

Saturday we went out to Uncle Joe's camp for a mini family reunion with Trent's moms side of the family.  It was so much fun.  It was hot but not unbearable.  Uncle Joe made his award winning jambalya and everyone brought something chocolate!  YUM.  After we ate Uncle Joe showed the girls how to fish.  We fished for hours.  We caught 5 turtles (I think it was the same turtle five times!)  Brooklyn caught a fish right before we lef.  She was really nervous to hold the line for a picture, but she did, and even smiled!  I hope we get to go back out there and fish again.  The girls and me had a great time.  Trent had a great time visiting his family too.

Brooklyn's first day of dance

This is the dress is made for Sophia's birthday.  It was made from a sheet and one of my old shirts

Getting ready for her first day of Dance

Today was Brooklyn's first day at The Little Gym.  She woke up very excited but as it became closer to leave she became really nervous.  I decided to take her early to see the facility and meet the teachers and watch some other kids in their classes.  The ladies were very impressed with me doing that.  Brooklyn's teacher Ms. Lauren said she wished more parents would do that, it would make things easier for the kids.  Brooklyn got to spend almost a whole hour with just the teacher talking and becoming less scared.  By the time class started she was relaxed and ready to go.  They did 15 minutes of tap, then 15 minutes of ballet and finished with 30 minutes of gymnastics.  Brooklyn was very serious with the whole thing.  She followed Laurens instructions to the T.  She is so excited to start her every Friday classes in October.  I think we are going to buy her a leotard and some tights.  She doesn't have to have one for the class but if I can find one cheap enough I might consider it as her birthday present.  I am how ever not going to buy tap shoes or ballet shoes.  Her converse work just fine for tap and she can do the ballet stuff barefoot.  I was so nervous for her once the class started.  I am so proud of her for doing so well.  Sophia has to get bigger to take the classes but it will be so exciting to have them doing it together.  Brooklyn was trying to show her how to twirl with her hands over her head.  She has got to work on it!

Don't be Jealous

It's just now seven in the morning.  My bed is made, dishes washed, I have walked over a mile, I am showered and ready for the rest of the day.  I have to drop the girls off so I can go back to the dr.  I think I am going to see if I can get my thyroids retested.  I keep reading about false everything is o.k and it ends up not.  I also have to get checked to make sure my cervical infection is gone.  And if it is, then him and I need to find out why I am STILL bleeding randomly (I know tmi).  After the Dr.  I am going to Michaels to buy the stuff for a party wreath and look around.  Then to meet Trent at the bank.  Then to get the girls, come home, cook supper, walk another mile, pass out.  Fun day, I know you wish you were me.
