Another successful weekend at competition. Claire's jazz group took 1st place and kick received 3rd. She is very happy to be adding to her collection of ribbons and looking forward to the next competition. Here is her team, some ready to dance their next dance.
And, here is another iPhone photo I found...her ribbons and after dance treat of frozen yogurt:)
SOMETIMES THEY MAKE MISTAKES. CALCULATION ERROR AND THE GIRLS FOUND OUT THEY ACTUALLY WON 1ST PLACE IN KICK TOO!! HERE IS THE PHOTO FROM PRACTICE AFTER THEY FOUND OUT!
But, the photos below are the photos that are my favorite of the week.
My little girl is growing up and I can't deny it. As tough as it was for me to admit it about Max, I had physical cues. His voice changed, he passed me in height years ago, he busted out of his clothes like the Incredible Hulk and he is constantly eating.
But, Claire, Claire is still my petite little girl. Much to her irritation, she is not going to be anywhere near as tall as her Mama. She'll get to rock those cute heels that I never could. And, sure, people have commented on how she is growing up but I just nodded and smiled, not really listening.
But when her dance photos came home, I noticed. I saw what everyone else is seeing. She is growing up. She isn't my toddler with the pigtail horns sticking out of her head. I really miss those horns but I guess those wouldn't look as cute on the young lady she has become.
