My girls’ summer has been full of activities! They’ve gone to a number of swimming parties, play dates, and the like. Noelle started her summer workshop in Danae’s school Kidvantage Learning Center, while Danae is learning ballet in the pink class with TEAM Dance Studio, and has joined OLPMC’s free cheer dance class being handled by Eureka! She also recently finished the 3-day workshop with Chef Len Santos-Ding called Tiny Chefs.
Noelle is 2 years & 3 months old. It was her first time to attend school last Friday. She cried a few times and still needs me or King to stay with her, but I think she did okay. I can’t wait till she opens up, becomes comfortable with her classmates & her environment, and participate! She did enjoy playing with the materials in school. I have complete faith in T. Millet, Danae’s Nursery teacher, to help Noelle this summer. It’s going to be good practice for her when she really enters nursery in June 2012!
Although she’s learning 2 different and opposite dance styles, Danae’s enjoying both classes. Movement & rhythm come naturally to her, so it’s like she’s just playing. She’s the smallest & youngest in her cheer dance class but her teachers tell me that she can follow quite well. I’m so proud of her! She still doesn’t have the stance of a ballerina but she is having loads of fun and hopefully she will want to continue ballet classes till year-end or even further. I’d love to see her dance on stage in TEAM Dance Studio‘s annual December recital!
Tiny Chefs was a blast! This was Danae’s second time and there were more recipes this year, and maybe because they’re older (mostly 5 or 6), they did more grown up stuff! They sliced apples on their own chopping boards, cracked and beat their own egg, mixed their own ingredients, and so on. It was great for us moms too who were there to taste their creations haha. Yum!
I’m so thrilled with what my girls are learning, and doubly thrilled that they’re enjoying themselves!
