Dance Photos


Stella recently had her 4th dance recital, so of course that means lots of professional photos in dance costumes!  How fun and stress free for mothers...(I hope you got the sarcasm.)
Cille was participating in recital for the second time...
And the blessing of having a sibling is taking a photo together, and your mother forcing you to wear the costumes that coordinate the best...
We love these beautiful little ballerinas!

More Baseball

As the season wore on, Watts really found his happy place on the baseball field...

The base in the foreground of the picture is third base.  When a player from the other team chased him with the ball, Watts took a trip through the outfield to avoid him before coming back and touching second base and third base...
Coming back to second...
Which explains why he is turning the wrong direction...
Rounding third...
Sooooo happy....
Of course, Watts got lots of pointers from dear old Coach Daddy...
The girls were not as worried about the mechanics of the game as they were about how they looked while cheering for their brother...



This catch was hotly contested...
...but Watts came out with the ball...


Watts was the first kid on his team to ditch the tee and hit the coach's pitch...


He's also a switch hitter and super ambidextrous when it comes to catching and throwing...
Praying after the game...

And celebrating with his friends...
Watts had such a great experience playing baseball for the first time this year with Istrouma Sports Organization.  What a wonderful ministry for young families in our area!

Watts' Pre-K Graduation

This handsome little fella is now a Pre-K graduate!  

 Saying the pledge during his program...
 From where we were sitting it was hard to take photos of him on the stage...
 I am pretty sure a substitute helped Watts complete his fireman picture, because she couldn't believe that Pourciau ended in a "U" and not a "W."  I can personally vouch that spelling Pourciau is one of the skills that Watts mastered in Pre-K, which is great, since I was a college graduate and had been married for several years before I learned to spell it...
 Watts and Ms. Dolly on graduation day...
 Click here to see them together on the first day of Pre-K.  Click here to see Ms. Dolly with Cille on her first day of Pre-K, and click here to see Ms. Dolly with Stella and a baby Watts at Stella's Pre-K field trip.  This lady is truly something special and we are so thankful that God put her in our lives!  We can't wait for Corinne to be in her class one day!

 Corinne and Cille were rocking the twinsy look at the graduation...


 You can probably tell that Watts was D-O-N-E with pictures by this time...




 Zoned out....
 Corinne was NOT having a family photo...
 So we left her out...
 Watts and his bestie graduated together...


 We tried again...Corinne still was't feeling it...

 Now Watts is over it...

 We just can't. all. smile.
 Watts and his afternoon teacher, Ms. Hannah...
We are super proud of Watts for all of his hard work in Ms. Dolly's class and we can't wait to watch him grow next year in TK!
