Enjoying an unlikely occurence in Georgia: Snow

Our backyard earlier in the morning. It was beautiful! Heather would get up and look out the window every once in awhile asking if it was time to go outside yet.

Pulled out the skis for a little down hill fun in the backyard.

Heather and Mom are enjoying the snow. Below they build a snowman.

Heather's taking creative dance

Heather is enjoying her dance class. The first two times she sat on the sidelines and watched the other girls dance until the last ten minutes of each class, at which time she would get up and run to join the girls. (I believe the sticker each girl gets at the end of class is the enticement.) The last two classes she was a little hesitant to go into the room and would peek into the room via the door until the instructor said, Heather it's your turn. She finally ran in and joined. Each week seems to be getting better. I believe the key to this is the fact she is speaking and understanding English so much better now. She will carry out a conversation with little hesitation now. Her class will be giving a recital in May. We look forward to seeing her up there on stage at the Gwinnett Arena.

Heather is such a cute little girl. The girl in black just beyond her in this photo is half a year younger than Heather.
