I spent all day today learning the ins and outs of being a dance mom. Lexi joined her middle school dance team this year, and today they performed at their very first competition. They were the only middle school team, so their performance was just an exhibition, meaning they weren't judged, but it gave them a chance to practice in front of a larger audience than just their coaches and a handful of parents. There are only 9 girls on the team, but they got up there in front of all those high schoolers and the packed audience and brought their very best, and I'm proud to say they rocked it!
I heard several people comment on how sassy Lexi was (she's the last one to take her place - you be the judge). She was definitely in her element. She loves performing, and today I'm so thankful that she has the chance to express herself, and to be a part of a team while doing something she loves.
What are you thankful for today?
