Grandparents take full advantage of birthdays when they see us, so when the girls were home this summer, my mom celebrated both of them simultaneously in a month that neither was born in.
One advantage to living overseas.
When the girls go to ballet camp, they can't have any outside contact the first four days; however, I saw these pictures on facebook, and I spied Karis in them.
These were tryouts from their first full day there.

(The theme was "musicals," and her group dressed up as lions from "The Lion King.")
Kylie and her friends posed outside during some off time, and she sent me some of their pictures.
On a side note, their summer dance intensive is put on by Ballet Magnificat in Jackson, Mississippi. It is a faith-based camp where the girls not only learn skills and techniques of different styles of dance, but they also spend time studying the Word and learning to worship through dance.
I highly recommend it if you have a dancer in your family.
Some friends of mine in Mississippi went to see the girls and took pictures for me.

Karis is so used to be the tallest girl among all of her classmates in our country, so it was nice for her to have a friend taller than she...but not by much.
I was also surprised to see that Texas is now selling 113 pound burgers! 😂
