Where have we been?

I wish I could say I've been to London to visit the Queen (as in the nursery rhyme!) but nope, we've just been plain busy, busy with Rebekah's extra curricular activities and busy visiting relatives inter state.
Ron's dad had a BIG birthday so we went over to their town to celebrate. We squeezed our trip in between Rebekah's rehearsal and end of year concert!
Once again, my heart swelled with pride and emotion as I watched her perform on stage. (We didn't go down the path of Irish dancing but we cut out jazz and she only did ballet and tap this year)






































Was she shy? Was she nervous? Nope! She said she loved being on stage and dancing with everyone watching her! Why - because she felt 'famous'! :) My shy daughter loves being the centre of attention! Are the two compatible? I wouldn't have thought so but she has proved me wrong!
To top it off she got a trophy for being the "tap" student of the year in her class and also she got a high distinction for her tap exam she had earlier in the year. We are so proud of our little girl!


I'll be over at your place soon to catch up on all your blogs:)

Thanks for the up-date, I am so glad your daughter wasn't nervous performing. It is a wonderful gift to have - unlike people like me who get so nervous and have to make many trips to the bathroom to calm down.

Did you have to make the costumes?

I was a wondering when we'd next hear from you... Sounds like you've been busy having fun!

oops, it's too late at night and I was signed in with another google a/c!!!
Jo, I am NOT a sewer so was grateful that this dance school doesn't require me to do any costumes:)

Oh, she looks beautiful. You should be proud.

So sad that we didn't get to catch up this year. Do let me know when you're down this way again.

Love to Rebekah from Jemimah.

She looks so precious!! I did tap, classical ballet & jazz ballet when I was growing up. My poor mother (and I was one of 6 kids.)
