This year Honey decided she wanted to take twirling. We have a twirling coach that comes to the school to practice with them twice a week. I have been amazed at how fast she was able to learn everything. Part of the program included walking in two Christmas parades. The girls did so well and were awarded first place in one of the parades. The first parade they walked about 20 minutes. The second parade they walked for a good hour. My poor Honey was getting blisters but didn’t tell anyone and continued twirling. I was proud of the fact that she didn’t want to bow out and continued but my heart hurt knowing that half way through her fingers hurt and she continued. Hopefully next year it will be a little better and maybe we can pick up some tips to help (she did have grip tape on her baton’s so not sure why she got blisters).
As a proud mommy I took tons of pictures and thought I would share a few with you. Sometimes I can’t believe she is only NINE!
