(They got the fire out 45 minutes before I had to leave for recital. 7 different fire stations came to assist so my house is still standing. Yay!)
Another season is in the books.
Which is weird, really.
Many things are changing, which are difficult to have to handle and stuff, but we’ll take it as it comes.
Recital got rolling, we ran the girl-only version (plus Sean) of sixes since it was different only having one out of three of the guys in the piece.
Saturday was a way shorter program than Friday, and it seemed that almost all of the baby classes ended up on Friday as well. I largely got to sit back and wait to dance, then just stand around and watch the dances. It was fun, really, especially hanging out with my friends backstage. That’s some of the best.
I felt like sixes was better on friday, but it seemed everyone else felt better Saturday. Oh well.
One of my favorite people is moving, making yesterday’s show her last one with us. (At least for now.) I’m excited for the potential the new studio she’ll be dancing at gives her, and how much she can grown being there. I’m grateful she’s moving to a place they’re familiar with, having lived there once before (and moving for her dads job.) I’m grateful for having her for the last two years, and knowing that we have a friendship where distance doesn’t matter. They’re family. It’s gonna be rough having to adjust to not having her mom there to avoid people with before class, or taking one or two of them home on long days, or following each other home until my house when they keep going the extra bit to their house. The mutual middle of nowhere ness. I’m gonna miss hugging and laughing with and encouraging each other all throughout classes and the season. It’s gonna suck. But it’s good for the family, which makes me grateful even if it’s hard not to be a little selfish.
So this post is largely an I-miss-you post to the Rowland’s, and that’s okay by me.
Also, have some pictures and boomerangs from back stage
I’ve learned and grown more than I’ve ever expected, but I still have far to go.
Summer starts in a couple weeks, and before that we have classes available to us on Wednesdays.
I’m uncertain of what I’ll take next year, seeing as there is a change in teachers as well with some moving and all.
We’ll take it as it comes. Work and hard and move forward.
