Last week was the first week that all of the girls' after school activities started. Lucy has PSR class on Mondays right after school, both girls have dance on Wednesday, and Lucy has her monthly Girl Scout meetings on Thursday evenings. It was a busy week but I was actually surprised at how well Lucy handled everything and never really seemed to be more tired or grumpy.
This is the first year that both girls are taking dance for the full season (last year, Cece was only in the Tiny Tots class which was an 8 week session that she did 2 back-to-back sessions of) and Lucy is actually taking 2 classes which means comes recital time, we'll be purchasing 3 costumes! Cece is taking Pre-Dance 3 (which is basically ballet for 3 year olds) and Lucy is taking Tap 1 (she did Pre-Tap 4/5 the last 2 years) as well as Musical Theatre. Musical Theatre incorporates all aspects of a musical performance so it's dancing, singing, and acting which is right up her alley. With all that being said, it somehow worked out that I could schedule all 3 of their classes on the same night with one of Lucy's classes and Cece's class being at the same time immediately followed by Lucy's second class. We're at the dance studio for almost 2 hours but it's worth it to have it all done in one night.
Cece was excited for her new dance outfit

Lucy got off the bus and about 10 minutes later, we were heading out the door for dance--I'm surprised I actually had time to take a picture!
This is Lucy's 4th year at the dance studio but her first year doing 2 classes

and watching Lucy most of the time since I was sitting right across from her room
Olive is also in Lucy's Musical Theatre class which will make for an even better dance season!
They haven't been in the same dance class since they were 3!
