Katie's Recital

















Kathryn Grace Olson has enjoyed her very first dance experience with an amazing teacher named Miss Jennifer. On Monday, November 17, Katie had an audience with her brother Anders, Grandma and Grandpa Olson and Dad and Mom. Our neighbor and Katie's playmate, Megan Odegard (who happens to be 4 weeks younger than Katie) was also a part of the recital.


As you will see, Kate has a beautiful updo courtesy of Sheri, Katie's wonderful caregiver. The Lion Sleeps Tonight was the main dance performed and I'm sure Kate will oblige you if you ask her to repeat the performance.

We almost had a new member of the family join us, but he decided to wait a few days to make a grand entrance. Baby Gorlock will join his big sister, Siri for his first Halloween next year.


As you can see, "Rodeo Dude" and "Dorothy" made their rounds and we saw some especially impressive pumpkins that we are sharing...
