Dance for all Seasons

So many amazing things about living in Crosby, football, softball, parades, summer programs at the libraty, Art with Alex, Christmas at the community Center...
But truly BY FAR THE BEST--
Carol's Dance and Gymanstics
How does she do it?
She teaches little girls to dance and to love to dance 
She teaches them to be kind and friendly
She teaches them that there are wonderful people out there.
Mrs. Carol is a rockstar, she can't go anywhere in Crosby without a gaggle of girls hugging her.
I wish I had a picture of her! WHY DON"T I????
Anyhoo, tonight was her 2013 Dance Recital.
Alice was in tap and ballet this year, so she had two dances,
In all the excitement, I didn't get a picture of her in her tap costume, 
They danced to "Love will keep us together"
The costume was beautiful.
Her Ballet dance was to "colors of the wind" from Pocohantas. I hate to brag, but she was beautiful. The costume was sooo her, very earthy and resembled a butterfly.  Her class was magical.
She started taking dance when she was 4 and she's loved it. She took a year off to pursue her art. 
Most likely she will go back to art next year, and this was probably her last dance recital with Carol, so I'm glad it was so much fun for her.  
She's ten and half now, I can't believe how she's growing up.

Joely earned star student and with it comes this coveted crown and the  wise words from Mrs. Carol 
"to never lose her sparkle"
I'm not sure the tiara will ever come off, a true princess can sleep in hers. 

And here she is in her costume for "Little Saint Nick"
She is in the gymnastics class and worked hard to master her 
I was so proud of her accomplishment to do her back bend kick overs and her back flip.
She has a great teacher and loves to practice at home too!!
This is her third of many years with Mrs. Carol!

I can't wait to see what she comes up with for next year.

Homerun Season

 So here is our little Wildcat!  This is Joely's third and final season in Tball.  This year she was drafted with the Wildcats and has done so well.  Her first season was last spring, as a Diamond Diva.  Last year she learned the game, but was very timid.  This season, after playing on a co-ed Tball  fall team, she became
 She covered third base every game like she was born to play

She had tons of fans come watch her .  This is Katie Crocker, her personal coach for the off season.
In fact, Katie is so awesome, she was able to get Joely in the Press Box at her High School Game.  She had the best view, right behind home plate, with a birds eye view to Third base where Katie plays

Even The brothers helped out in the dug out.  Of course my camera was only with me a little bit, so the only evidence is David.

And Hey Now, She's an All Star

It was fun, and the fun continues with the all Star tournament in Louisianna's Hidden Gem of
Lake Charles.
I'll keep you posted.
