The kids always look forward to "dojo day." I'm so glad that Samantha is participating again. For a while she had stopped going on the mat. Understandable when you compare her to the 7 four year old boys that were taking the class. Sensei's daughter has started to take class though so Samantha is thrilled to be with Evey. Even if they don't always listen so well. Samantha also got her first yellow stripe!
Holidays seem to come in phases for these kids. First they got their baskets from Nan & Pop. Samantha's basket was filled with princess stuff. Boy, did Nan & Pop hit the nail on the head on that one. Samantha lives, eats and breathes everything princess these days. (You'll notice she was wearing her own princess stuff while opening the princess basket!) After that the Easter bunny came to our house of course and then we went to Gee & Papa's house where the weather was so beautiful that they got to look for eggs outside. It was a wonderful Easter.
