Arianna’s KAR Competition Performance

Arianna and her DCPAC Petites crew headed out to the Warner Theatre in Torrington CT today to compete in the Kids Artistic Review (KAR) competition. It was amazing to watch these girls do this very complicated routine without any guidance on stage! I’ve only seen them with helpers before, so it was really awesome to see them do so well all on their own! Fantastic job to all the girls, the really rocked it! First taste of competition for the petites parents today, and I think we all still have butterflies. Quite interesting how nervous you get for the kids, and they just go out there without any problems and enjoy themselves.

Arianna’s Pre-K Graduation

Well that’s it, our kid is officially getting older. We can no longer live in denial. Today was Arianna’s Pre-K graduation from Stepping Stones, where she’s been attending since she was 2 years old. Amazing how fast time flies. I know we parents always say that, but it’s becoming too true. The ceremony was held at nearby Lawrence Farms. All the kids were dressed in cap and gown, with a little cowboy flair. Arianna received an award for most improved! She worked very hard this year and did amazing. Oh, apparently she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Not sure where that came from as she’s always said she wanted to be a policeman, but at least now I know I need to start selling organs to put her through med school if it stays true. Enjoy all the videos of the kids singing! View all the pictures here.










Father’s Day At Arianna’s School

Arianna’s school held another Father’s Day party this year. We were all treated to fancy neckties the kids made, some much needed play time, and a nice clean shave! Arianna and I had fun playing on the playground and eating lunch together. She did a pretty good job giving me a shave too! She also made a book for me, with all the pages hand written by herself. She did an amazing job for me and I can’t wait to make some more room in my office for all this great stuff.
