My #FavouriteThing today was my kids’ dance competition. This is the last competition for this year, and we had this evening, and will have all day tomorrow too. Since Kid #1 is changing dance schools next year, this is a little bittersweet for her, being the last time she’ll compete with these dancers. And since Kid #3 isn’t dancing competitively next year, this is also bittersweet for her, also being the last time she’ll compete with these dancers. Both girls have danced with their groups for a lot of years now, and there are a lot of great memories and big feelings.

It was also great that my oldest and bestest friend came with her kid and guy to see the competition tonight. They live about 5 minutes away from the theatre, so it was an easy one. And then we came back to their house afterwards and are spending the night – which means waaaay less driving back and forth from White Rock to North Vancouver for all of us! We laughed and laughed and laughed, and had ourselves a little chocolate and popcorn party. These people are family to me, and I love them dearly.
