Little Red Ridinghood had her first dance recital yesterday. She did a great job of watching her teacher and following the dance moves. They performed in a nursing home. I am so pleased with the dance school that we found, because they consider themselves a dance ministry. They concentrate on teaching the children how to dance for joy and to glorify God. They don't push them toward perfection, and all of the dance moves and dance attire is kept modest. I love their motto ~ "Let them praise His name with dancing..." Psalm 149:3.
Awww! I think 4 year olds are so cute (at least when they are dancing)! I don't think 4 year old attitudes are cute, but we will train that out of her.
In other news, we babysat one of my friend's children last week. We decided to make a birthday present for my friend, his Mom. The kids had a so much fun making bath salts. We mixed Epsom salts, food coloring and perfume together. It was really easy and quick.
We also had fun doing The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomi dePoala. The kids made lots of pictures of poinsettias, and we finished the day off with a Mexican dinner. We had homemade tortillas with cheese, black beans and salsa. The kids loved all of it, so it was gone really quickly.
