And where are we now?
After a solid year of competing, the princess is about where she was a year ago. It is what it is and what can you do. I can hope she will someday be a champ but in my heart I know it's probably beyond her grasp.
Our ladies team got third at oireachtas. That is a huge move up from last year where we got last and Nationals where we tied for last. That is the result of lots and lots of hard work.
Ryan is about to become the Western Region U18 champion. It's what happens when you are the only dancer in your age group. While a bigger competition would be nice, we will accept the first place and be happy and start planning for worlds in London :)
