Blue Monday ~ A Dance...

Today is Blue Monday so be sure to stop by Smiling Sally's blog and see what other blue things everyone has posted about. In July, Lexi's dance teacher "D", had called and said that the local news was spot-lighting five small towns that week, and Pauls Valley was one of them. The main studio that "D" teaches at is there. The dancers were performing in the park for the crowd and one of her girls was on vacation and she wanted to know if Lexi wanted to fill in.
This dance was the same dance that Lexi had performed in her recital, but she was going to be in a different position and doing a different part through the dance. "D" was confident Lexi could do it. We went and had a couple of hours of practice, borrowed the blue costume (pinned it all the way down the back of the bodice to fit), and Lexi danced again like an angel....never missing a beat.

The news team did film the dance, but never ended up using it in their live broadcast from the park that day.....darn!!!

That is "D" standing on the stage in the hot pink top/black skirt watching over her flock.
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday. We are enjoying the last couple of days of our lazy summer before school starts.

Good morning Darlene, oh, you know how I love your Lexi. She is beautiful in her blue and I would love to see her dance. She is so pretty and talented. Learning a new part that fast is awesome. I know how proud you are and I would be too. Darn, is right. Wouldn't that have been something to share on TV?
have a happy day.

Hugs...Jeanne

How wonderful for Lexi to have that experience. Would the TV station let you have the footage? Your photos will make for great memories down the road. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

I would love to see her dance someday. I know she does a beautiful job. Hey, what about when Kiddo gets older he can play the piano and Lexi can dance! : )

Oh, of course she knew Lexi could jump in and get the job done. Lexi is Supergirl! : )
These photos are beautiful. And how perfect for "Blue" Monday. I'm sorry they didn't end up using the spot, but how awesome that you got pics of the TV truck and the girls performing.
Thanks for letting us share in the thrill.

Lexi looks so great in her dress and so elegant, she should have been on TV. She'll get her chance again, I'm sure.

Hi Darlene! What a little darling, Lexi is! I'm so enjoying watching her grow up! Thanks for sharing all of her little happenings!
Be a sweetie,

Farm Chick Paula said...

So much for Lexi's 15 minutes of fame! Rats! LOL
Still- that must have been very exciting for her! (And you too, Darlene!)

Jeni said...

Man she must be good. She looks beautiful. I love that blue they were wearing. You would think the news people would know to at least put a few seconds of the girls on...kids are important news.

jeanne said...

Hi Darlene, thank you for your sweet comments about my guest bedroom. Come on over and "be my guest" You are so very welcome. We do have the cabin and your family would love the mountains. I am serious Darlene.

I do like the idea about the inexpensive paint idea. I am really torn about what color to use. I have no intention of painting it over. This is it!!! Thanks for your good idea.

Hugs,,,Jeanne

Dawn said...

Lexi looks just lovely in the blue and dancing. I'm sorry the footage didn't get used. I'll bet Lexi would have loved to have seen herself on TV. I know Tim would have LOL!

take care,
Dawn

Christina said...

How wonderful that she is able to learn fast and take part in an opportunity like that. She also looks like an angel.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Darlene,
Your daughter looks so sweet in her blue costume! It does not surprise me at all that she could pick up that new part so quickly like that! Good for her! I am sorry to hear the news didn't end up covering it though. But wow, what a fun experience all the same! :)

I hope the last of your summer vacation is a blast for you all! :)
