Here are some photos of Elyssa, taken by Colonial House Portraits, in Layton, Utah. I'm so pleased with how they turned out. Elyssa looks more like her mother more each day, I think!! Her little expressions are so much like Kathy's and I love seeing them.
Here she is with her classmates; all really cute and sweet girls. I'm proud of all of them and the progress they make and all the hard work they put into each class and recital.
Elyssa is really excited for the new dance class to start again in September. I hope the two girls who are in her class come again and that they also get some new students in the class. It's a fun class for the kids to take and they are made for special needs kids and their challenges.
Meanwhile, Elyssa is staying busy with swimming. Her wonderful Aunt Joan (my SIL, Bob's wife) has been kind enough to take her to her lessons every week AND on Monday and Fridays. The majority of Elyssa's summer fun is due to Joan and my sister Susie, who takes Elyssa out for a while on her day off. The other days, she's mine to entertain, which I love too. Actually, E doesn't seem to mind our days at home, in fact, she and I nap quite a bit in my recliner. Ahhh, yeah, that's the life.
