Journal: Keep Them Busy

I've always grown up hearing adults say "I keep my kids busy!"  I never paid much attention to it but since becoming a parent...I totally get it!  Keeping them busy means less time to get into possible trouble.  With that in mind, you will do as many drop-offs and pick-ups you need to, especially when you see them enjoy and treasure whatever they're involved in.  What better way than to nurture what your child loves as best you can.  Whether it be clubs, leagues, competitive or recreational classes or DIY projects...get them active!

For our household it's dance and numerous DIY (Do-It-Yourself) activities.  Our girls have ALWAYS had a love for music and dance so we have put as much as we can into cultivating that interest.

This week their dance company A New Daei was invited to perform as the halftime show for a Caribbean themed playoff game for Black History Month.  It was a lot of fun and also the girls' first basketball game.  The excitement was in the air for both the parents and the dancers.  What a joy it was to watch them thrive and perform after numerous hours of practice.  To see the dancers come together, look out for each other and truly work as a family was amazing!  They are learning things that we could never teach them.  Thrilling indeed!  Here are a couple photos from that night.
