We Went to the Final Jump-n-Jive Performance.....

Last night we went to the final performance that Lexi will have with the Jump-n-Jive team.  They always perform for the Annual Elks Lodge Spaghetti Dinner.   Normally after the last performance in 5th grade the girls are through and they don't come back the next year for the dinner (to perform).  This year though, there were so many strong performers that moved to 6th grade, the coach had them come back and perform one final time.    
On stage getting ready to jump. 
These are all the girls that are now 6th graders.  Only two of them have been on the team from the first time they tried out.  It is Lexi (second from left on the bottom row) and "A" the girl second from right on the bottom row.  These two also did many rope jumping tricks together and were really fun to watch.  I'm sad to see it end but I know new fun things await.
And.......you ALWAYS have to have a fun, goofy picture!
Hope you are enjoying your Friday.♥

Good morning Darlene, I have been missing your posts. Last weekend my brother and his wife had their 50th wedding anniversary party and we were overwhelmed with company who came from all over to celebrate. Very little time on the computer was the problem. However, the family getting together was so special. Lots of hugs and love going around for a few days. We(four sisters) were filled up with guests in all of our homes. One of my sisters still lives in Atlanta. We love being together, especially with our brother and his wife. A rare event.

I scrolled down to see what I have missed. Your porch is awesome. Lovely and peaceful. The rain was needed but it sure was a big storm.
The photos of Lexie and her Jump n Jive friends are terrific. They will miss it and each other I am sure. I would love to have seen them.

Have a wonderful weekend. Remember 911.
Love. Jeanne

I would definitely agree with some of the others...that's such a bittersweet time, isn't it? Talk about a cute bunch of girlies who have the personality to show for it! I bet they could light up any room!

Hi Darlene, had a very long day today and took a late nap. Sigh, now I am not ready to go to sleep. Thus, the late night visit. I bowled 198 in league today. I bowl with friends and my dh. I surprised them all, most of all me. HA! We won our games.

The weather is in the 70's and low 80's during the day and in the 50's at night. I am loving it! I'm sure your hot weather won't last long. Fall color comes in mid to late October here. I.m ready.

Hugs to you Darlene.
