The flamingo lives!

I was really glad that we were able to pay some things off so that Olivia could continue with dance this year. It's her favorite thing and I really enjoy watching her every year. Last year was the first year for our new coach and I'm not going to lie, the girls were terrible. I think it was just a new thing and it takes awhile to find a teaching style that matches up with the kids you have. You wouldn't know any of that this year at our first recital in December- these girls were GREAT. 

 Olivia was front and center. Her kicks were straight (not this one), high, and on sync with the counts. 
 She also gets the award for best smile because my girl had a smile on her face the entire time. She is totally ready for competition this year. 
 Look at her pose!! This one was my favorite because her legs are so long and thin, they remind me of a flamingo. I call her my little flamingo and it's our little thing. Sometimes I'll find a flamingo thing and hide it in her backpack or in her bed- she gets a kick out of it. 
 She was so proud of herself after the recital and she should be, that was a tremendous performance. We also got to see the high school dance team (a goal for Olivia) and she really enjoyed watching them. They did two dances but the Harry Potter dance was my favorite. 
We start hip hop this month and both of those teams will be going to competition this year. I'm always nervous for her and them but after seeing their routine in December? These girls are on point.
