Yesterday will go down in the record books as a really fun day.
Youngest son called me Friday, wanting to know if I would like him to pick me up so I could watch his daughters dance in their first competition of the year on Saturday afternoon. Is he kidding? Of course I would love to watch my granddaughters dance. So I did.
Boston, the older of the two, has done solo dances before. Her sister, Maddie Mae has not, so this was the very first time she has appeared on stage alone.
Boston's dance was entitled "One Girl Revolution" and Maddie's was "Rock Star." Their costumes reflected the theme of their music.
I am absolutely amazed at what these girls can do. There are dance steps and acrobatics and attitude involved, and they both nailed it. And both went home with a trophy to add to their collection.
This dance thing is a family affair. Mom is backstage helping with costumes and hairdos and stage makeup. Dad and little brother are in the audience, cheering them on. The grandparent contingent consisted of two grandmas and a grandpa, all having such fun watching and cheering. Most times the competitions are too far away for me to be able to attend, but this time it was close enough to home to make it possible. Thank you, my family, for giving me such a fun day.
And Boston and Maddie.....you done good! I am proud of both of you.
