For a small fee

Madeline came home with a flyer from school last week. The local high school dance team was holding a 4 day dance clinic for little girls grades K-5 to raise money. The cost is $30 and it includes dance training for 3 days, a dance t-shirt, snacks at each training, and a Friday night performance at the half time of the boys varsity basketball game. So since Madeline likes to dance, I signed her up! Today was day 1 and they moved right into teaching the girls a High School Musical dance routine, the one they will be performing at the halftime show! Madeline is center in the above photo wearing a long sleeve purple shirt, blue jeans and white tennies holding a gold hoop.

James enjoyed sitting in the basketball gym watching the girls practice.

Madeline was put into the group with Kindergartners and 1st graders.

James going in for a closer look. :)

The girls were taught this routine in 40 minutes, then they had to perform it in front of the Dance Director.
I believe Madeline is in the back row 4th one in from the left holding the gold hoop. So they've got 2 more days of practicing for the big half time show on Friday night!
Another great deal we got this week was our FREE photo collage calendar from Shutterfly. I received an email coupon code for a free 12 month calendar, all I had to do was pay for the shipping and taxes which cost about $6. It took me a few hours to put together photos, monthly quotes, birth and anniversary dates on the calendar - but I'm very pleased with the outcome, it was worth the time!

The pages are on nice, thick, matte card stock. And the color is really vibrant. I'll certainly make another next year if I get another coupon for it!
