The girls had their first recital and they did amazing! I was honestly worried about them just standing there or breaking it down to their own dance but they didn't. Their teacher, Miss Hilary, separated them in the line which really helped. I was the “room mom” so I got to stay with all the girls backstage while we waited our turn. They all did really well except for our youngest member who really, really did not want to be without her Mama. All her friends helped get her excited and she ended up doing great on stage as well.
I wish the video I shot turned our better but you can't tell who is who due to the lighting. I may post it anyway just to let everyone see.

With the girls being with their dad on Sunday it was very strange. The house was quite and clean(ish) and I got to sleep in until 9! But it was depressing without them. Stephen did what he could to help cheer me up and made a valiant effort. About noon I had a bad phone call that just took me from sad to upset and it took everything I had not to let it all overwhelm my emotions.
Luckily Ryan brought the girls home early! So we hopped in the car and went to see Stephen's parents and to do a little fishing. The girls cheered me right up with their love and then getting to see the family and get my mind off things was great. The ladies loved helping Stephen fish (while mommy enjoyed sitting in the shade) and finding dandy. lions. But don't call them dandy infront of Hannah because she'll correct you quickly. "They are CANDY lions Mama!"
At the end of it all I was just happy to tuck my sweet girls in bed and dream the day away.

They are so lucky to have so many wonderful people who love them. They get to celebrate every holiday twice, get twice as many presents and twice and much love! And unlike so many other divorced families we all get along great. God has definitely blessed us all.
