Tonight the girls danced at the first home football game. And for the first time in 16 years the studio has been providing this entertainment at half time, it rained. It wasn't a drenching rain, but a light rain that would let up, then start up again. Thankfully, it wasn't super cold or it could have been miserable. As it was, our team had a 14 pt lead going into the halftime show. We (ok, *I*) thoroughly enjoyed the "flava" of the commentators...when they'd say..."the chain gang is on the move, headin' towards our local DQ" = first down, our side.
So, the rain decided to let up enough to let the girls dance on the field. My younger two danced to Usher's OMG and my older daughter danced to Pit Bull's Shut it Down. They all did awesome. Here they are after halftime:
We pretty much bolted after half time. Yes, it had stopped raining but the skeeters decided to put in an appearance. Plus....I had a pot of Texas Brisket Chili on the stove, tortilla's warming, toppings of avocados, sour cream, monteray jack cheese and fresh cilantro AND yesterday's apple pound cake. We had friends over and ate then warmed up in the hot tub.
More and more I'm finding...life is not what happens but rather what you make of it. I find I kinda like Dancin' in the Rain.
