A Banner Day For Princess P!

On top of the fact today is Princess P’s birthday, she also participated in her school’s Ballroom Dance event this morning. Like Kevin, she and members of her class showed off what they learned and performed the six dances for parents and friends. She did the waltz, merengue, foxtrot, swing, rumba and tango. As a bonus at the end, they performed the heel-toe polka, which was great.

After the performance, the teachers and instructors picked their choices for the school’s competitive team. Kevin was lucky enough to make the team last year, and Julia was chosen this year! She’ll join a handful of classmates and compete against local schools, and if they get past the first round, they’ll compete against schools throughout the city.

She also told Mrs. Earp she wants to continue ballroom lessons, like Kevin did, for the foreseeable future.

  1. Happy birthday to Princess P. It’s great that she is branching out into ballroom dancing like big brother. You have a talented family there who are not afraid to try different things………..

    And yeah, since you mentioned the merengue I had to include a clip from one of my all time favorite comedy movies………….


  2. Congrats to Princess P! That is great! Your kids have been blessed with athletic genes and aren’t afraid to try different things. I wish we had been able to participate in these types of things when I was growing up. The joys of growing up in the Midwest in the 50’s and 60’s and living in a small town of less than 5000 people.


  3. Proof – Oh my kids are all the exact opposite of me – except the sarcasm.

    Cathy – I’ll settle for good and decent. That’s enough for me.

    Tam – Such a great film. One of the first DVDs I ever purchased. Clerk: “Have a nice day.” Vinnie: “F**k you.” Hilarious.

    Ronni – Kevin and Julia are more outgoing than Kyle and Erik, activity-wise. But K and E are more focused, and both are dialed in on lacrosse, hoping they can play in college.
