Basketball, Dancing & Pizza!!

Today was the day and it was amazing!! First of all, Keira started out with the 24hr flu bug last night, so we weren't sure if she'd be able to do it. Miraculously, after a desperate prayer right before the game, she popped out of it and was all better. Thank you Lord!

We watched a bit of the B-ball game from a birds eye view. We were in the upstairs section of Prosser Gym getting ready for the performance. Last minute touches to the outfits hair & makeup, and picture taking. As all this was going on, Keanu and I watched some of the game from high up and he was completely and utterly enthralled by the players and what was happening in the game! I gave him a running commentary of what was going on, who had the ball & he just loved it! I simply have to take him to more of these!! The problem though was, the game was between Grandview & Prosser. I didn't know who to root for!

The girls lined up. Keanu & I took our places in the center bleachers, and the little ones filed out. They got some laughs out of the audience with the cute & slightly catty choreography to "Hey Mickey". Then it was Keira's turn with the big girls to the song "I Love Rock & Roll" by Joan Jett. She did awesome! They got lots of applause and I was the epitomy of the proud mommy!
Keira's bestest Jazz buddy invited us to Shay's Pizza after the performance. We totally stuffed ourselves with all-you-can-eat pizza, pasta, salad bar, chicken & joes! And the best part of it all was good conversation with some new friends!

I am glad Kiera was well enough to perform that night, I was worried for you guys! The pictures of her performance look like so much fun!
