What a great week. Ever since J left her dance studio, so many great things have happened. First, she was chosen to dance in her school's gospel show. It is such a huge honor to be chosen for ANY performance at this school. This is no ordinary high school. Second, she was so excited to get to work the school's open house. She sold sweatshirts and greeted the accepted 8th & 9th graders with an overly-cheerful, "Welcome to LaGuardia!!". She had a blast. Third, she has been acing her choreography class at school. The dance chairperson loves everything she choreographs. J's grades have been well into the 90s for all dances. This week, the assignment was to go to the school's art gallery, choose a piece, interview the artist, and choreograph a dance based on the art piece. J did really well with this. And finally, J will be dancing in a new music video. This is an awesome opportunity for her. She's in rehearsals for the next few weeks and it's being shot sometime in April. She's looking forward to the all-day shoot along with the hair, makeup, and costuming!
J's solo 2012
It is times like this when I know her guardian angel has stepped in. It was the right time for her to part with the studio in order to be able to move forward in her life.
K in Florida
K just got home from Florida on Monday. She spent a week down in Fort Lauderdale and Miami. She had a great time on the beach, at different clubs, and being with 3 of her friends all week. It's weird to think of her as a grown-up. She booked and planned everything herself -no help from me at all. She worked tons of extra hours during the weeks prior to her trip so she'd have plenty of spending money. She said she had the best time.
