New Red Dancing Shoes!

Today was pretty lazy. It’s still snowing and cold outside. Thankfully, it’s supposed to warm up this week. I’m sick of snow and definitely feeling ready for spring! We haven’t had a horrible winter, I’m just ready for winter to be finished. Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I just hate driving in the winter. Speaking of driving,  the girls and I drove to South Common this afternoon (not the smartest in a Saturday-it’s so darn busy on the weekends). We found red runners, the light Keds type, at Ardene’s for only $15!! My dancer girl needed them for hip hop. They go with her Velma costume for her Scooby Doo hip hop dance. I’m so happy we found such affordable ones! Usually we spend a great deal more than that for hip hop runners! I also thought it’d be more difficult to find red ones…we were lucky! The roads weren’t actually that bad this afternoon. It was snowing, but it wasn’t a heavy snowfall. I probably wouldn’t have gone today if the conditions were worse. Now I just need to get a pair of tan jazz shoes (which are always expensive) and tights and we’ll be ready for competitions. Actually, we’re still waiting on her solo costume. However, we’ve ordered it, it just hasn’t arrived yet. All of the other costumes are ready to go or still coming from the dance school and not my responsibility to order …I just have to pay!! lol. Her competitions begin at the end of the month. Soon I’ll be busy busy busy. I can’t believe that she’s doing a solo. I’m nervous about it. I don’t know why – just a Mom thing, I guess. I’m sure she’ll do well…it’s just nerve-wracking! And that’s how I feel, so I understand how she feels! The first competition at the end of March is just a hip hop competition only. My daughter is quite good at hip hop, but she’s nervous for this competition. It’s supposed to be a difficult competition with “elite” dancers (whatever that means!). Last year only the senior girls entered that competition. They did well, but they were the older girls and they were considered beginners!! That was an excellent dance too. They ended up doing very well. This year, that group is considered intermediate and my daughter’s class is in the beginner category. I don’t know how they decide. Every competition comes up with their levels differently. Some it’s number of years dancing, some it’s age, some it’s a combination of the two. Often it will explain how they decided on their levels in the front of the program for each individual competition. Sometimes it’s hard to understand or it doesn’t make sense when you see kids who look 12 dancing against 16 or 17 year olds, but you can’t do anything about it. They are where they are and that’s that. Even if it seems to look unfair. I’m sure that there are all sorts of differing opinions about how to place the kids in the levels!! Well, it is what it is. It’ll be a good experience for them to be at a different type of competition, even if it’s more difficult. I’m sure that they’ll do fine. Wow! I’m rambling! I should probably get going – this is getting long. I’m tired and it’s only 9:00!! Feeling like I could fall asleep right now! Well, I’m not going to bed yet…soon though. Night all💤😴
