The girls had their first dance competition of the season last weekend and it went really well. This is Madi's first year competing and she loved every second of it. She somewhat stole the show in her dance because lets just say she was really working it, lol. She definitely isn't shy on stage! Her group won 2nd place and Madi was ecstatic. She got to go up and receive the plaque and even talk in the microphone which is a huge deal when you're 4.
Alana's solo won 3rd and so did her trio so I'm very proud of her. Her solo is a beautiful lyrical to Celine Dion's Brahm's Lullaby and she just looked gorgeous on stage. She's unsure of the dance because lyrical isn't exactly her style (she prefers fast songs where she can tumble) so I was super proud with how well she did. She's been feeling fairly well lately, even with the cold that we all caught, so I'm extremely grateful for that.
Their dance team could really use some help from everyone with a Facebook account. The older girls on her team won 1st in their division and are now up for a $5000 scholarship for Nationals. This would benefit the entire team so we're all working hard to get votes. All you have to do is LIKE the Showbiz National Talent Facebook Page, then scroll and find the Lakeland competition poll. Please vote for #5 "That's Not My Name" from Tammy's Dance Company. Her team is in the lead right now and we'd like to keep it that way! Please just take a few minutes to vote and the girls would really appreciate it. It would be a huge honor for their studio to win. Thanks!
I'm glad they had so much fun and did well at the competition. I'm even more glad that Alana has been feeling better lately. Does that mean that it was likely a side-effect from the singulair that triggered her nausea and vomiting?

There is a link on my wall. I thought you had to LIKE the Showbiz page first (because that's what they announced at the competition) but I voted from my hubby's account and I didn't have to. Thank you for taking the time to vote! The girls make me check several times a day to make sure they are still in the lead! lol
About the Singulair....I have no idea if it caused all of those issues, contributed to it, or if the whole thing is a coincidence. She needed to come off of it anyway for allergy testing and at this point she is doing well without it. She also has to come off of the Patanase and Nasonex for the testing so I'm hoping her ear infections don't return. Her ears never stopped hurting since the last infection and apparently they were still swollen though not infected. That's why we started the Nasonex again. But regardless, she has been very active in dance and her new tumbling class at gym and she's been a happy little girl again. The reflux is still there but much improved and she hasn't vomited in over a week. Had some major diarrhea last weekend but it didn't bother her any. I need to weigh her again because I bet she's gained a pound or two!
Thank you for voting! It will be such an honor if our studio wins! If I understand correctly there will be a winner from each regional and then those winners will compete against each other for the $5000. So if we win this round I will be kindly asking everyone to vote for us again. $5000 is a huge deal!
I'm glad she's feeling so much better!! It sounds like they are really having fun in dance. That's great
