Blurry pictures but seriously, O WELL!!!! These kiddos rock my flippin' socks!!!!
Towards the end of the concert, the audience was asked to stand if they had/have cancer or have a loved one who has suffered from cancer. My emotions were running high when 95% of the place was standing.
My photography skills suffered a little today but I'll make up for it for sure at our SEVEN recitals next month. This was one of my favorites though.

Since #dancersagainstcancer was trending on Instagram today, I wish I could share my favorite photos, but I can't. Real cute, Instagram. Real cute. NDC, just know that I was entertained.
I love these kids. I love Nebraska Dance and what it stands for. I'm truly feeling so blessed today. I loved that my daughter got to dance in this concert in place of a competition. It meant more to her (and clearly me) to stand for something. There is nothing like being slapped in the face with your own blessings. I'm blessed and I know it. This was a weekend of thankfulness.
1. My grandpa had a stroke 3 months ago and we didn't think he would ever come home...but he came home Saturday. Unbelievable.
2. My brother who has been deployed on a job more dangerous that I even care to think about...came home.
3. My baby girl had an amazing first birthday! Every time someone wished her 'happy birthday,' she clapped and blew them a kiss on command. Seriously!? I SWEAR we didn't practice that. No, really.
4. I have never lost a loved one to cancer. I realize now how rare that is and am heart broken for those that have.
Tonight I'm squeezing my family a little tighter and thanking God just a little bit longer.
Dancers rule, cancer drools.
