I love how Natalie says hamburger. She likes adding extra syllables to words, and I find it adorable. She made this "ham-a-burger" at the Rochester library for their story time program.

Natalie has been enjoying a wonderful visit with her great aunt Cindy. She got to play outside with her, play on the iPad, and the best part was a fun half-birthday party with making fun cupcakes and enjoying a neat cake toy. It was a great time!

Another one of the many bonuses of staying home over the summer is that I get to take Natalie to music and dance class. She went to music class last year and she loved it just as much this year. Dance class is something new that she has also enjoyed. I don't get to stay with her for dance class, API am not positive how much she loves it. I get to watch the last class so maybe I will be able to see more then!
This has been a summer of firsts for Natalie! She had her first VBS! This was designed for preschoolers so it was play-based. But every night she learned something about God (God made everything, God loves us, God gave us a special gift with Jesus) and she could tell me each of these things. She also learned new songs. On the last night they were asked to perform these songs on stage. From precious experiences I expected Natalie to freeze and do nothing. She proved me wrong. She sang all of the songs and did all of the movements. I could not be more proud (which I demonstrated by bawling like a baby)
Now that Natalie is 3, she gets to be a part of the summer reading program at the library! For every hour that we read she gets a prize! She also loves story time on Thursdays. They have a great program where they read stories to them, they get to do a craft, and then usually eat something (because the theme this year is food) Natalie loves it!
