Dance Competitions

Riley and Brooke were able to compete in several different dance competitions with their teams this year. They had so much fun and did so great! I am very proud of how they have progressed this year. It's so fun to see them developing their talents and getting so good! I have to admit it makes me a little jealous. I would love to be able to dance like them. This year Riley learned a solo for competition. It was such a beautiful dance that she dedicated to Grandpa Pete. She danced to the song "Keep Breathing". It has beautiful lyrics that were just perfect for expressing her feelings. She was so great! She competed three times and got better and better each time. At the last one she got 3rd place. Several people we didn't know stopped her as we left to tell her how much they enjoyed her performance. Riley was able to perform her solo at the end of year recital. She danced so good, and Grandpa was able to see her dance. Aaron and I were very proud.

Brooke has also learned a lot this year. She is very graceful and has a great stage smile. It's so fun to watch her dance.

What beautiful kids.
