Spring Break

For spring break I took my dance team down to USA Nationals in California. I took 14 team girls, 16 parents, and my husband and youngest daughter and my son and his wife. What a job. I had to juggle girls and performing, parents and their concerns and my family. I would not recommend it. But what a great trip. We flew out on Wed. morning and when we checked into the hotel we went straight to the beach. What a great afternoon. Sun, warm, and did I say sand. Love the beach. Went back to hotel and just chilled. Or no wait girls wanted to go to a california mall, so off in the vans we went to a very upper elite mall with guards at all the big elite shops. I did not fit in at all in that mall. Girls had fun though. Thursday off for a day at Disneyland and California Adventures. So much fun. great weather and sun for us.
Friday was all day competing at the Anaheim Convention Center. So many teams with so many girls that can really dance. My team performed so good. I was very proud of them. Didn't place to high on Friday but they kicked some major butt. They are so much fun. Sat. competed again and placed a 3rd and a 4th. A great place for them. California teams are very tuff to compete against, but we did great. Sunday we flew home and then crashed for an afternoon nap. Love my team.
Well onto reality now. Back to work and looking forward to 8 more weeks of school.
We will have a small break next weekend as my youngest Breanna qualified for Regional 2 Gymnastics up in Seattle. We will drive up on Wed. and then the rest of the trip on Thursday. Yup 11 hour drive, but still cheaper than flying. She is doing so good. Improving every day and at every meet. We have changed gyms 3 times this year and we are finally in a good place. So glad we left the first gym. Should have done it years ago. Oh well live and learn right.
Life is good. All my children doing well and losing weight finally and feeling better. Still kind of battleing this cold, that has been going on for 4 weeks now. Oh well.
Looking forward to Conference this week and just relaxing with the family.

Great trip! I'm tired just reading about it though. You are wonderful to do it all.

One questions: How are you losing weight? That is a very difficult one for me. I thought running would take it off, but not yet.
