End of the Season

This weekend, we closed the dance competition season:
The Tiny Company ended the year well, and we couldn't be more proud of Issa. For the first time, she got super nervous before her solo, and at one point she wasn't even sure she could go on. In a moment that will be engraved in my heart forever, one of the older dancers came over and just started rubbing her back and chatting. She is the one who got Issa on stage. Issa danced better than the last competition, and she came off smiling.

When she competed with her team, she genuinely had fun. They danced their little feet off and scored well. Most importantly, we won top studio, which is a combination of performance, team spirit, and character backstage. For us, that is the highest award there is.

And...the icing on the cake is Ryan and Felicia were waiting for us at home with dinner. They made spring rolls and what Brad has deemed beef candy. It was lovely.

We still have a performance at Relay for Life and the recital, but the competition part of the year is over. Now we just celebrate with our little dance family, which is always my favorite part of the year.
