makes me happy!
This past weekend was Sofia’s first performance on the Musical Theatre Team. They performed their new Hard Knock Life routine from Annie. They did an awesome job! They had only had about 6 hours of practice. They performed at a big re-opening celebration for the performing arts center. I was so proud!
I created her costume from bargains at the Goodwill of course! Blue dress - .99, brown dress (it was white I used RIT dye) 3.99, used mary jane shoes - $10.50.
Her sad Orphan face!

This fall Sofia is cheering for a football team for the first time! It is a great league of boys about 10-12 years old and there are 6 cheerleaders. Sofia especially like the fact that Jazzy her dance friend is cheering as well. She has about 4 hours of practice each week and games are on Saturday. If only Saturdays had not still been 100+ degrees outside – it really drains the cheerleaders pretty quick. Sofia and I practice new cheers each weekend after we look them up on YouTube. I am sort of like the “assistant cheer coach”. I must admit I LOVE it – but boy those girls wear me out!
How is it possible my baby is in First Grade? We are very excited about Sofia’s teacher and looking forward to a much better experience than last year. Sofia was very happy to find out some of her great friends were going to be in her class this year. We did a little back to school shopping, ordered a new backpack and she was ready to go!
In addition to starting school, August also kicked off the new dance year. Sofia participated in 2 weeks of intense boot camp and then had try-outs for the Musical Theatre Company.
Try-outs day! Lucky #43
All dressed up in her new dance outfit for the first day of boot camp!
