Caroline's birthday party was on the Sunday before her birthday on Wednesday. Her party was at Chuck E. Cheese's. She was so excited about her party. Last August we went to a neighbor's party at Chuck E. Cheese and ever since then Caroline has said she wanted her party there. And she did not forget! I asked her time and time again if she wanted a ballerina party, a princess party, a jump zone party, but she wanted her party at Chuck E. Cheese's! And it turned out to be such a fun party!

Caroline had her very first ballet recital this month. She has been taking a ballet/tap combo class since August. For the recital called "Under the Sea", her class performed a ballet number. Caroline was so excited to dance a ballet on the stage! She has loved dance this year and dances around the house all the time. I have been very impressed with all that she has learned. She knows first through fourth positions and has learned many French ballet terms. Her favorite move she performed in the recital is "arabesque around the world"! I loved Caroline's recital costume. Her class wore a mixture of pink, yellow, and teal costumes. For some reason, her teacher chose pink for her! I think she got to know Caroline pretty well in class!

I cannot believe that summer is already here! Caroline's last day of 3 y/o preschool was Friday. It feels like yesterday was her first day at Madison Methodist. She has had a wonderful year, and we have loved her school. When we knew we were moving back to Jackson, I started looking at preschools for Caroline. One weekend when we were in town I visited Madison Methodist and met the director. I just felt like it would be a great fit for Caroline. I am so thankful to God that there was a spot for her. Usually there is a long waiting list and some people spend the night at the church the day before registration to be sure their child gets a spot. I know it was God's provision that worked all of that out! We are so excited that she will be attending 4 y/o preschool there, too! Our ballerina on her last day of school(Can you tell Caroline was excited about her recital the next day?)
I had a great time at the beach with my best friends from high school. We had some wonderful girl time and enjoyed visiting with each other and being lazy at the beach! We drove down on my birthday and went out to dinner at King Neptune's to celebrate. It was a delicious meal and so much fun sharing my birthday with these girls!
