Busy August!

Whew, it's been a really busy August for the Wagner clan so far! Between the two of us we have been incredibly busy and scheduled to the max. We have had baby showers, birthday parties, babysitting nephews/nieces, dinner plans, classes, etc. all month! Joey and I are used to being on our own time and doing things by ear so it's been a tiring month so far. However, I suppose we better get used to it!

We have been spending a lot of time with family lately due to the sad loss of Joey's step mom's mother, Shirley Larkin. She passed away the second week in August after dealing with Alzheimer's. (Similar to my own grandma.) She was a big part of Joey's life, as she wasn't only his step grandmother but also was a teacher to him and is the force behind Larkin Dance Studio, where Joey spent a lot of time growing up and where many of his close friendships stemmed from. It's a sad loss, but we can only pray that she is now in a better place and be thankful she is no longer suffering.

Because of Mrs. Larkin, this past week many of Joey's friends from all over the country have been flying back home, getting together to celebrate her life. Joey has been busy, but happily spending time with his friends that he hasn't seen in a while (some for years).

 Here's Joey with his best friends from the Larkin days: AJ, Jim and Chris.

More dance! On Saturday the 13th we went to see one of Joey's friends, Ricci Milan's show, Rythmic Circus' "Feet Don't Fail Me Now" which was amazing! Baby Wagner was responding to the music with nice, fat kicks and punches all over my belly! She really enjoyed the show, and now that I know her eardrums and hearing skills are fully developed, I'm sure she was really listening! It will be fun having this little girl...maybe she will follow in her daddy's footsteps and become a dancer!

More soon!
