I think I can, I think I can!

So this is the month of the year I dread the most and having a new baby doesn't help. June is always the worst with our studio recital happening at the end of the month. swimming lessons, day camp, dance workshops, and baseball. We are approaching "hell week" for dance (recital week) and I don't know how I am going to get through it. Its hard being an instructor, light operator, and a mother all at the same time. Running a big show while doing your daughter's costume change is something I have mastered. This year we will have a added bonus of a 8 week old baby hanging out with me. I love teaching more than anything, but these recitals get pretty crazy. Not to mention, I made the mistake of scheduling my kids for swimming lessons all this month. I am sorta feeling like when is my chill out, take it easy summer going to come? I just keep telling myself to hang in there, it's almost over. I love teaching so much and I love the girls I teach. I feel so lucky to be able to be teaching exactly what I want to and I have students that are just as excited about what I am doing as I am. My own daughter included. She told me the other day that she loves her modern class and that when she grows up she wants to be a modern dancer too. How awsome it that!! So If I can just get through this crazy month, hopefully July will bring some peace! Yea right, I've got 4 kids, what is peace??? I did manage to get on my bike for a quick ride and go golfing with Bryce this weekend, so it's not all bad!
