Esme had her second of two dance competitions today. When asked what her favorite part of the competitions was she immediately answered, “the dressing room!” She clarified, “I like being with my team and friends and the older girls. We just have fun!”

These girls performed with big smiles, did their best and came home with a couple of trophies. A job well done!

Dance Xplosion

Esme thoroughly enjoyed her first dance competition in Concord, NH. Her team performed so well and were absolutely adorable. For those who understand dance scoring, (ie not me) they received an Extreme Gold metal and a First place trophy. They also took 4th overall. So, I think that’s good 🙂 The girls were just really happy to be there with the older girls and they loved performing. As you can see, Esme was wiped out and slept the whole way home!


This one keeps sharpening her crafting teeth on ever more varied projects. Today’s offering is a small menagerie of small creatures sculpted from Sculpey clay. All designed and made from pictures in her mind.

Please note that the dolphin is in its own swimming pool, water included.
