Put On Your Dancin' Shoes

Dance Team season is upon us! I think I've mentioned before that I would love to get involved {again} in activities and events that were once a big part of my life. Sometimes I feel sad that I've let such a huge part of me slip away. But then I remember that I *have* been pretty busy the last 8 or 9 years ;) This may not be the best year to add more to our already full plate, but eventually I would love to introduce my girls more fully to interests their Mama had years ago.

Luckily we haven't strayed too far from dance. Sierra has been taking lessons regularly since she was 3 years old, my older sister is a dance instructor, and my little sis took over coaching dance team for me when I got married. Awwwww.

Last weekend she {little sis, Annie} was up here for a competition, and we got to go watch!

I LOVE it!

The music, the costumes, the makeup, the themes.

I love it all.

And apparently so do my daughters. Even Kam sat intently watching {and every once in awhile whispering "Ooooooh pretty".

Excuse the bars in every.single.photo. We didn't have the greatest seats.

And while we're ignoring things, can we agree to ignore the partial head in the above picture? Mkaythanks. That's my sis, Annie, up there on the far right. She and Beesh {middle} were on the team together when I coached. And now {or actually for many years} they coach together.

And this is their team. The theme this year is the fine line between dream and reality. I have to say, it was a little spooky.

But not spooky like Scappoose's team. Oh no. They're clowns. And I don't mean the happy, friendly ones.

I have a feeling your girls will be following right in your footsteps- or toe shoes. Whichever the case may be. And Kam's reaction- oh how cute!

I kinda like the bar look. Makes the shots artsy. :D

I LOVE it too!!!! I danced and cheered my whole life. I miss is so much. You couldn't tell it by looking at me now though. LOL. I'm so outta shape, but I'm pretty sure I've still got some moves...somewhere under all this fluff.

I'm glad you're getting your girls into the stuff you once were a huge part of! That's awesome!

Your little sis is so pretty!! Runs in the family. :)

Love the pics!

How fun. I agree the outfits are really neat. I didn't mind the bars in the photo, we will say you added them in photo shop for a special touch, lol.
Have a fabulous weekend!
