This is it

Well, after all of the rehearsals and hours of hard work the nine girls dancing to "We Go Together" from Grease finally perform it tonight. My daughter is very excited. Actually, I think all of the girls are excited. But, they're also done - it has been extremely difficult to corral them into practicing. Last year, the seven original girls cooperated every moment of rehearsal. They were so eager to please us and do well. That was not the case this year. It was so much harder this time around. I guess it comes with age. Is it more of an awareness of what will happen? Is their lack of concentration a side effect of what's expected of them in class during the day? Is it that at the end of the day, they are tired and just want to let off steam? Is it a combination of all of these? I don't know.

Still in all, I am proud of the girls. They've worked hard. Dana and I made sure of that. Dana is the kind and generous person who did most of the coordinating of this whole endeavor. There's talk of what song the girls should dance to next year already...anybody up for "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy?"

Natalie- Thanks!

Sandy- I'm nervous for them. At the end of the song each girl holds up one letter of the word TOGETHER! So, I hope the person in charge of props puts the boards down correctly! In as far as next year, organized-no. Thinking ahead-maybe, it all depends if we remember we discussed the song.
