RAFA Awards Ceremony

Sat. 5/16
We attended L's dance awards ceremony tonight ....There are 2 locations, and both locations were included in the ceremony......lots of kiddos..llloonnnggg evening...and we didn't even make it through the whole thing...sorry! I think next year we'll be better prepared...we will actually eat dinner before we go...and bring a snack...or a pillow....and personal fans...apparently the school district forgot to program the air to come on ...very long, but very nice!
The ceremony took place at LC Intermediate....the original location was damaged during IKE...so, they made due with what was available..
These pictures are out of order....we ate dinner AFTER the awards...but, you'll get the idea.:)


We told L she could pick where we went for dinner..since we were so proud of her for earning 2 medals....she choose East Star........the girl was huuunnnggrrryyy!!!
showing off her medals

L earned 2 awards
1.yellow-perfect attendance
2.blue-completing her skills for her level...
(each child has a skills notebook that they are responsible for...it is to come to class each week...and they are tested at the end of each semester...the skills are the terms for their ballet and tap positions)
a pat on the back before heading to the medal table...
The Director/Founder of RAFA...Mrs. Lynette...read the cards....L calls her "Oliver's mom"...there is a cat that lives at the studio...and L knows Mrs. Lynette is the boss....so, she always calls her "Oliver's mom"...it is too cute!!
The children waited in line with their card...that listed the awards they would be receiving....they were to give their card to the person when they got on stage...listen as their card was read...and then go to the table to receive their awards...my big girl on the stage all by herself!!

waiting in line with the rest of the mob to take her turn on stage..so big!


L entered on one side of the stage....received her awards...and exited the other side of the stage....she was so precious walking across the stage....I asked her if she was nervous...she said "only a little when you wouldn't say hi to me!"....I guess I missed that part.:)
