Girls before their 1st competition
Girls below with their dance teacher, Ms. Lindsay
Pics below are from my camera during the competition - pretty good for no flash :-)
After the dance - the girls did great!
wow - these girls had some facial expressions below
such a little photo bug :-)
the older teen girls came out to support the mini's today - they even gave the girls a treat bag after - thanks girls!
the awards - the girls won gold and a 1st place trophy and a plaque. Can you tell how tired they were all getting by then??? (and shortly after all the girls had their meltdowns...)
Wow - I took a major blogging break didn't I??? Well, things have been staying busy here, although my work is showing signs of slowing down (I hope). I haven't been doing much other than working here (which Brenna will tell you that she doesn't love), but hopefully, we will start a better balance in the afternoons here. We finally even got the paints out again last week in the afternoons (this winter we spent a lot of time making friends at the McDonald's play area locally - Brenna is an easy bargin there - if I took her right after school she would play for a apple juice and ice cream cone and I was able to get some work done). Brenna is really looking forward to summer - she loved the early summer days we had in March (although we really "enjoyed" the hot weather then as we found out the AC unit needed to be replaced...now, it has been replaced and the weather has all turned cooler...)
Anyway, back to Brenna - she competed in her first dance competition this morning. For the early morning, she did great and actually was so excited when we got there and saw her friends - she said she just couldn't stop smiling. The girls all did great on the stage today and were very excited that they won a trophey and plaque (of course, some drama did follow when they found out that the trophey and plaque were going to be staying at the Dance House and not staying at their house, but I think the ribbon and medallion she has now will happily replace them).
Well, anyway - hope you enjoy the pics - these are the costumes that I made in December. The owner of the Dance House added some sparkle this week - so cute...
Well, that is all for now!
