Proud mamma

The girls made me so proud today at the Manitoba Dance Festival.  They had a fabulous day of competing, but more importantly they were both such great cheerleaderz for other dancers today.  Pride is something we all struggle with from time to time, and they are no exception.  Today, however I saw a selfless type of pride in them.  For their friends, their teachers, and the studio to which they all belong.  It gave me such joy to watch Théa cheer on Eden as she performed her duo, and to watch Eden to the same for Théa as she performed her trio.  They may not always like each other, but seeing that kind of support for one another today gives me hope that they will always have each other's back no matter what.

A special treat for all of us today, was that so many came out to support the girls.  My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and two nieces and two nephews came out for the entire day to lend their support.  I was so touched by that, and know the girls loved having other family members there to see them compete in the sport they so greatly love.  Thanks Mom, and Carla for going that extra mile for us today!

I also wanted to let you know that I did not make the cut for the design team I mentioned a little while back; Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  Although, I have to admit I was very disappointed (even though I knew it was a long shot, somehow I still managed to feel disappointment), it was good to see that two women with whom I am familiar got the positions.  I wish them all the best and look forward to the launch of the new site.  Thanks for all your kind, and supportive words as I went through the application process, they were very much appreciated.

I'll leave you with a picture of the girls' Competitive Jazz Class in their shimmery blue and silver outfits, sans the fluorescent pink with shiny sliver tinsel threads that left the stage looking like a giant pink cloud had exploded upon it.

That kid front and center with her leg hiked to her chin?  Yeah, she would be mine. No class I tell ya :)
A post lunch relax on Main St, enjoying the sunny afternoon before heading back in for the Group dances.

Until next time friends,
