Excuse me while I brag for a second!
We had our last competition this past weekend down in Pittsburgh. My kids rocked. I have nothing to say but they were awesome. There were very few "oops" moments and even fewer "oh no!" moments. There were still some tears, as always. (GIRLS! There's no crying in dance! :)) But in the end, they were amazing and I couldn't be prouder. We brought home over 15 first place trophies, several seconds and a third or two. We were also awarded the "Overall Excellence" award for the highest total score for all routines out of all 13 studios!! We've never gotten that award before, we're not a big team and we don't bring as many numbers as most other studios. This year was a good year for us, that's for sure. My kids deserved it too, after that last competition defeated the poor kids self esteem so bad. It felt good to watch them feel good. That's what's most important, after all.
Okay bragging over!
