Twins On Ice

What an AMAZING fundraising day! We are ALMOST halfway to our 2012 goal of $5,000!!! A big "thank you" goes out to DGS Service Company, Inc., Brooke, David K., Emily, and Joshua M. for bringing our new grand total to $2,455!!!!

As promised, it's ON WITH THE SHOW!

Alyssa and Katy were SO excited for the "big ICE show", but not for skating lessons to end.  They have really surprised both Andy and I with how well they have done over the past 6 weeks.  We've had many a talk about the importance of "trying even when things are hard" and this was our first chance to really test that out (I think they've inherited a bit of my "I want to be perfect the first time out" tendency...).  And they did GREAT!  I hope this is only the beginning of their determination and perseverance when it comes to life!

Here are A and K going in for their last lesson

One more run through of the routine

Playing "Ring Around the Rosie"...Miss Theresa would be so proud Katy chimed in and taught everyone the "Children's Dance Theatre second verse"!
Duck, Duck, Goose!
Andy had it right "CUTENESS OVERLOAD" as everyone donned their costumes

Places and...
Let the FUN begin...
