Lost My Tooth

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I lost a tooth today! I am so excited.

Today is also my dad’s birthday. He is teasing me. Says that I look like bugs bunny, especially when I overlap my teeth over my bottom lip.

I may need to rethink my halloween costume.

Grandma Stella just called. She sang happy birthday to my dad and reminded him that he was coming out of her belly on his first birthday – gross. But I guess the family tradition of singing to each other on birthdays was started by grandma – which is always fun.

I plan to make my famous brownies for tonight’s BBQ. Extra walnuts is my secret ingredient.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween! I plan to take some photos of my favorite costumes. I may post some here if there are some great ones. If you have a good costume shot – post it to my dad’s facebook page or email it to me.

Red Ribbon Week

By | Dance, School | No Comments

Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of drug free America. 

That is what the website said about Red Ribbon Week. For me it was a day when I skipped going to my own school and went with DPAC Dancers to perform dances at local public schools.

We went to Grover Beach Elementary first. My dad took me there this morning and watched our first performance.

I did three dances.

The first dance was Jr. Large Hip Hop. We danced to the song Fix Up Look Sharp (video below).

The second dance was Mini Jazz. The dance has a medley of songs, the one I remember is called BubblePop Electric.

The third dance was Mini Tap. We danced to Its A Hard Knock Life (ABDC version) from the Broadway production, Annie.

Then we rolled along to three more schools and performed the dances again. The last school (Shell Beach Elementary) was a bummer because the music was messed up and I had to do Mini Tap with one shoe because I misplaced one.
