Maddie had the amazing privilege of getting to perform in her school play, “The Little Mermaid”. She was Orista, one of Ariel’s sisters. We are so fortunate to be a part of a school that has a huge value on performing arts.
My girls have grown leaps and bounds when it comes to developing a sense of self-confidence, (as you may note from the photos). I am truly, truly thankful for Mr. West, the girls’ music teacher, and for their school for allowing them to do these amazing productions. And did I mention the whole thing was done on Heelys? If you’re not familiar, Heelys are like a gym shoe with roller skates on the bottom. Maddie had never worn Heelys before. Ever. She had to learn in 10 days. Again, I am so thankful as a Mom to see her pushed and prodded outside of her comfort zone. It has truly made her a stronger girl in many ways.
I was a little worried when she started demanding things like a manicure and pedicure and asked me to re-fix her hair for the 100th time…such is the life of a Mermaid Diva.
