The Swing Is The Thing

So Princess P has been taking Ballroom Dancing lessons at her school. It’s the same program Kevin participated in last year, and it’s actually well run by the city.

Like Kevin, Julia (center of the below photo, towering over her partner) adores the lessons. Yesterday was the first set of city-wide competitions, and they were held as Julia’s school.

Princess P’s specialty dance is the tango, and she also performed the swing. Mrs. Earp was on hand for the competition, as I was working. As usual.

After an hour of dance, with each couple performing their specialty, the judges rated everyone on their performances. For her part, Princess P said her tango wasn’t her best performance, and she was upset about it.

I am happy to report Princess P and her class won the gold medal and are moving on to the next round!

He and three of his lacrosse teammates got tickets – thanks to one player’s father – for the TCU-Kansas game Saturday afternoon.

TCU’s offense went crazy against the Kansas Jayhawks, leading 38-0 at halftime. The defense shut down Kansas, and TCU won by a remarkable score of 51-14. Kyle loved the energy, the stadium, and the TCU coeds, obviously.

He’s hoping he and his teammates can see TCU once a year, but one of his friends already said he may be able to snag a few LSU (Louisiana State University) tickets this year. That’s Kyle’s other favorite team.

There’s more below the fold…
