Please read about Destiny's Hope...
It is time for Winterfest in dance and cheer competition. My Ashlea's Jr. Prep squad took first place in both their jazz and pom divisions yesterday. The Winterfest was held in the Lexington Center, just below Rupp arena. The Wildcats and the Indiana Hoosiers were playing at the exact time we danced.
I'm just sharing a few snapshots this morning before be begin our trek back home. There is a huge winter storm brewing and hopefully we make it before the brunt of it hits.
This is Gran and Ashlea just after awards. My Gran looks so wonderful and she feels it too!
Where has the last ten years gone? I can't believe she has grown so quickly, but ohhhhh how proud I am of the beautiful young lady she is becoming! Notice her purple medals around her neck in this one! Yay...
Ashlea is the center girl up front in this one. This is the jazz dance. If you will notice, she and the other dancers are wearing those pink band bracelets. If you have been following me since the summer, you will remember that Ashlea's dance partner, Destiny Brewer, was killed by a drunk driver. Destiny's family, friends, and the team have formed Destiny's Hope. We are lobbying for a new law (much more stiff) on those who choose to drink and drive. The man who took little Destiny's life had been arrested more than three times on DUI and was driving with a suspended license. For more information on how you can help, please visit Destiny's Hope.
Check out little miss sass!!! This dance is very sassy and just perfect for her! :)
