Family Vacation: Dexter Edition

We began our Radke-Leddy-Bowen vacation in style!  We drove north and spent two nights with the Worley's in Dexter.  It was the perfect way to begin our vacation.  The kiddos just played and played and the adults did a little too.  Ha!  We spent a day on the lake and just had fun spending some great time together.  As always, our time was too short, but we needed to continue the drive north!
Ready to begin the adventure!
My early birthday treats.  Love the notes to Ben!

May Endings

For us, May marks the end of many things.  But that also means something special is about to begin...

Twirling Across the Stage

This year's dance recital had an around the world theme and Morgan's class was America!  We just love this class and love our teacher Mrs. Tracy even more.  I'm serious there is nothing sweeter than a bunch of little ballerinas!  Their ballet was to "America" and they did an amazing job!  We were all so proud.  Their tap dance was to "God Bless America" and it was a little less together.  But still so precious!  Ha!  I think my favorite part is that Macie can now sing every word to "God Bless America" and truly can't wait until she gets to be a ballerina next year too!

 Front and center she did great!
 Morgan was thrilled that her sweet teacher, Ms. Roberts, came to watch her!  Ms. Roberts had three girls on stage this day: Morgan, Delina and Anne Bailey.

Singing into Spring

As we wrap up the end of another school year, my favorite Spring Programs for the girls occur.  This year Macie's school did "Down on the Farm" and she was so proud to be on stage!  She has been singing "Old MacDonald" for weeks now.  It was precious as usual.  Goodness I love this school!

Morgan has been working hard in choir all year.  Their Spring Program included all ages and even handbells!  The kids did an amazing job this year!

My Little Artist

We have a local art gallery in town and each year they do a show containing pieces done by students from Tupelo Schools.  When Morgan got a note saying some of her art was chosen she was thrilled!  She will tell you that she wants to be an artist when she grows up so this was very special.  We are so thankful for this town that supports its school in such a positive way.  It made Morgan so happy!
 She found her art way at the top!
 And she had TWO pieces!
 Proud family
We made it to Florence to celebrate Carrie's birthday!
