Dance Recital

Sam just had her dance recital and I am so proud on how well she did. My good friend Trisha teaches the dance class and Sam's class learned three dances. Trisha is brillant when it comes to coreography and music choice. Oh and also Trisha makes all the costumes herself. Way to much talent there. Anyways...Sam did an outstanding job. This is the second year I have helped with the costumes back stage. It is very caotic and rushed but I love it. I don't get to see the performance until I watch it on video when I get home. This year I took a camera back stage and took photos of the girls getting in costume. I HAD some great shots. Notice I said HAD....when importing the pictures to my computer something went wrong and all the pictures were erased. I actually cried about this. So instead I took my camera to the photo shoot the next weekend and got some good shots.

Sam Is Tiger Cub Of The Week

So I am a little late in posting this but Sam was Tiger Cub of the week at school. This means you have a special week of sharing things about yourself with the class. She also had special duties in her class. She was so excited and waited all year for this. She had to color a poster about herself and all her favorite things. Her favorite part about Tiger Cub of the week was taking home "Roary" the school mascot. She slept with it, dressed it up and watched Dancing with the Stars with it. I shouldn't call Roary "it" but I'm not sure if it is a boy or girl. In actuality I do know who is under the costume for our school mascot and I know it is a girl...but I think you assume it is a boy because it is a tiger. It's our secret!!!! Sam has no idea who is in the day she will find out....and what a shock she will have.
