Catch-Up Post!!!

First, before I left Gilbert, I was able to go watch Noah play in his first indoor soccer game in his new league. He was invited to play by our cousin Shane (Joni's husband), and our other cousin Jeff (Rachelle's husband) also plays on the team. They play every Saturday night, and he LOVES it. Here are just a few shots...


Next, I chopped my hair off! I know a lot of you have seen it already, but I decided to put up a post. This is the first time I have flipped it out... it's usually straight and a little bit under, but it had already air dried flipped out, so I just did it this way today. I couldn't put a picture up earlier, because I hadn't told Noah I had done it! I wanted to surprise him at the airport, and I succeeded!Before

After

Finally, the reason I went to Utah was for Body Motion's Summer Dance Camp! Here are a few pictures of my favorite students--my three girls!!!

Tess Abigail

Ellie Jo (in class)

Slumber Party with my girls (worst sleep I've ever gotten) haha.

I am already missing my family, but I'm so so happy to be back home with Noah. It's "monsoon" season here in AZ, so the nightly thunderstorms/showers really cool down the nights. Last night was beautiful. We laid under the cloudy sky in the perfect temperature weather waiting for fireworks (which were cancelled due to the storm) and enjoying the perfect weather-- I even fell asleep for a while. I guess I can get used to this :)

I love the post! It's fun to see the soccer pictures and it looks like lots of fun and good exercise too! Double bonus! The hair looks good flipped out -- did Noah like it? The dance pictures are great! Mia looks so big and Tess looks like a pro! The studio looks beautiful and I love the fact my two girls love what they do and they try to instill in others the same love they have for this beautiful art. Thank you, Giselle and Billie Jo, for loving it and sharing it so beautifully!

It was so fun to have you here for a couple of weeks, that is the most we have seen each other for a few years! Even though we love to have you here, I am glad that you can be home with your hubby now! Enjoy Arizona, but don't melt!

Love the hair. I know when I cut my hair off it was like cutting off my arm! I didn't realize how attached I had become to my HAIR! Lame I know.

The Cox Family said...

I saw your hair for the first time in the parade and thought to myself, it doesn't matter how Giselle has her hair, she always looks great! I am a fan of short hair and think it looks really good on you. I wish we could have seen you guys more this weekend!

Giselle,
It was so nice getting to see you and work with you for the pageant. I absolutely love your hair. I agree with the others, you look great no matter what your hair is like. Also, are the studio photos from Billie Jo's house? If so, how nice!!!

Mmmmm....Ketchup Post. I'm glad that we were able to briefly see you before you headed back to be with your husband, Ronalihndo. I can't believe you have had rain. Phoenix sounds like a paradise compared to Vegas.

Hey Giselle, thanks for your comment on my blog!! I do not know how you did it. Wacey is not gone as much as we thought he would be, but just the changing plans is killing me. It was good to see you for a while, and I am sure it is good to be back with your Hubby!!!

Your hair is way cute!! I guess I don't pay very much attention but I didn't know you guys were living in Arizona. Are you surviving this heat?? Well I just can't wait till Ells is old enough to come and have you teach her dance. She is such a girl in every way so dance just fits!!
