My Jazzy Girl

Sugar Bear has continued her dancing this year, but at a different Dance School. This new school is so much easier for me to juggle with work. Sugar's school bus will take her directly there. She dances while I finish up at work. It is a great plan for us. Sugar has fallen in love with her dance teacher this year, as well. Miss Dani has taught her soooooooooooooooo much, but also provided so much fun. There is nothing but smiles in her classes. Sugar was in two classes this Spring. The first was TAP. She likes it, but tells me it is often too loud. My poor girl just has little tolerance for noise. I'm hoping she continues with TAP next fall, but we'll see. I'm just grateful to have had the opportunity to see her tappin' her little heart out. She was such a sweet little Minnie Mouse at the recital.

The second class she was in was JAZZ. This was her first time trying that style as well. She LOVED IT! I really feel like it brought something out in her. It pulled her out of her shell a bit, and I'm grateful for that. She was over the TOP excited to perform her Jazz routine at the recital. I took a bunch of photos of this dance. She is so pleased....and proud. I'm so happy for her. They danced to a mix of fun 50's music.

This is a fun shot of interaction between Sugar and her friend.

Where on earth have I been?

Hey there folks........is anyone still checking in on me?  I know....I know....I disappeared without much warning.  I certainly did not mean to do it.  I just needed a small break....that turned into months and months.  Time flew.  WOW! 

I do keep busy over at Blipfoto.com though.  Check me out:  http://www.blipfoto.com/Livingandloving

I post over there every day.  It keeps me busy. 

I did want to share over here that Sugar Bear has just wrapped up her 2nd grade year.  WOW!  This school year was so fast.  She had a great year, and loved her teacher.  I'm so happy about that.

Here is a reminder of her on here first day of class:

52 Weeks of Me 2012~ Week 52

YES!  I made it.  I finished another year of this project.  Whew....It wasn't easy.  I lost all interest a little over a month ago.  My blog has been neglected.....and I just haven't felt like being here.  I'm enjoying Blipfoto very much though.  Here is a link to my journal there:  http://www.blipfoto.com/Livingandloving


The last theme of the year was: Celebrate

For probably the first time EVER, we were home on Christmas Eve with no company and no place to be.  It was a wonderfully relaxing day.  My Sugar Bear and I head out to a local State Park to see the holiday lights to celebrate Christmas Eve together.  It was such a treat.  Sugar Bear took the last photo of me for the year.

After two years of this project, I'd say that it was a success. I have an amazing amount of photos of myself for my Sugar Bear to cherish when she is older. She will be able to look back and remember her mama being there. :) This isn't the end of photos of me, though. It has become a bit of a habit to get shots of me now. I'm grateful for this. I let go of looking perfect in photos...and just allow them to look like me....as I am.
 
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and I look forward to the New Year.

52 weeks of me 2012~ Week 51

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not ashamed to say that I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooo ready for this challenge to be over with.  I really cherish the photos that this project of the past two years has brought about, and I know that my child will be ever so grateful for them in the future, but my creativity, motivation, and enthusiasm for this project is over. 

This week's theme was:  MERRY

I set up my tripod and used my remote shutter to grab a few shots of my girl and I by our tree the other night.  I did some posed.....and them just let it snap a few while be goofed off.  I adore this one.  It is so US.  Sugar is being goofy, and I'm over the moon in love with her.
