so you think you can dance, cheer and tumble

 while i may not have a house full of boys running up & down the stairs
slam dunking basketballs
& wrestling.
 i do have is a wiggle worm 10 year old
that if she's home,
she's tumbling
all day
every day.

 & two that are preparing for their first JV game tonight
& their first cheer competition next weekend.

what we do have is impromptu dance parties

we have big sissies that occasionally pick on little sissies
while the little sissy is tumbling outside.

 & one that is continually working on her strength and flexibility.

practicing round offs & back handsprings

one that may do planks
while mom is cooking dinner

 an audience of older sissies...again.

& then the latest,
practicing for a flash mob at school
(caroline was just having fun. the other two did indeed have a flash mob yesterday!)
too funny!

LOVE your family posts!! xoxo

Jen Kershner said...

I love that! Such physically talented girls you have! I couldn't pay Emma to dance. Twirl, yes. Dance, no.

Jodee said...

It must be soooo much fun having a nest full of girls! You are one blessed mama!

Heather said...

All that tumbling looks exactly like our house!! My little one has her steps perfectly down to do a roundoff backhandspring backtuck in our upstairs gameroom! (and it's not a huge room!) It sounds like she is going to come through the ceiling!

Looks like you have the perfectly flat yard for lots of tumbling! That would be the first thing my girls would notice! :) So fun!

I think that would be SO MUCH FUN!!! We do not dance around her..well Kate dances all the time but if I dance or put on music...the boys just roll their eyes.

Your girls really embrace life, Paige.

Kimberly said...

Oh those lovely ladies! I can hear the laughter & feel the fun! Love your family ... thanks for sharing Paige :)

Debby said...

What a fun time you must have with your sweet girls. Caroline is really good. She has to keep up with her sisters, doesn't she. Love how the doggie appears in your pictures.

Kelli said...

Look at your girls...too cute! I've considered signing Jamison up for cheer...she loves to cheer and dance.

Alecia said...

CUTIES!!! Sounds like a whole lot of fun goin' on at your house :-) Flash Mob...HILARIOUS! When did they do that at school?!?! Lunch, in between classes?!? It doesn't's AWESOME!

Jboo said...

So adorable!! Those girls are so flexible and beautiful! What fun times!


Michelle said...

Can I just say I love your family?! I love reading your posts! I'm a little jealous that you still have 3 at home. I just packed my two off for their sophomore and junior year in college! It was just as hard as their first year! Thank you for sharing with us!

Jenn A said...

You're going to make Savannah homesick!
Great job, girls!!

Privet and Holly said...

That gene skipped
me, but oh, I DO
love to dance!!!
I would even do a
flash-mob if I thought
I could follow all
the moves. How
precious are all of
your chicks??

CUTE! Very talented and super form. Keep working and flipping! WE have the thump, thump, thump all day outside shooting hoops. Love to watch them play and perform!

Daily Tales of Sugar and Spice said...

oh i love a dancing household. please let me know what time the next practice will be. the defeo girls will be there ready to boogie. larson can shake her groove thing - but your little bit has that tumbling down. wow!

Between You and Me said...

too much fun!

do they ever argue?

what a beautiful life you have with those sweet girls!

how weird is it that I was driving downtown today with my kids and saw the back of a college student walking and wondered if it was your savannah?

it wasn' was a gorgeous asian girl, but still, from the back, I thought there was a slight chance it would be her.

which probably confirms that you should probably warn her that if a crazy lady with three kids ever sees her...I'm TOTALLY gonna hug her neck!

warn her okay? :)

Simone said...
