We are celebrating Exceptional Children’s Week this week and I guess it was appropriate that the Little League had tryouts last Saturday for the Challenger Division. I don’t know if they timed it that way or not, but it was a good kick-off for us. There was a luncheon/reception for the teachers on Monday. I attended the Parent’s Luncheon on Wednesday. I was the only one who showed up, besides the Parent Mentor. She thought it was a little odd since 6 or 7 parents showed up last year. There were quite a few parents at the Parent Partnership Monthly Meeting on Tuesday night, so she expected a few more to show up. Oh well, we had a nice lunch anyway.
Last night, we went to a Wild West Dance and we were told to dress-up because there would be a contest. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for Leah to wear the cowgirl outfit I made for her for Halloween 2008. First, I want to share a little background on the outfit I made… I had a red and black one when I was about 5 years old.
I was such a cutie pie! I loved it when my daddy took pictures of me. So, anyway, here is the one I made for Leah Rose
I think she looks so adorable, and she’s got the pose to go with it.
I really thought Leah would have a lot of competition for the contest, but it turns out there were only 2 other girls that dressed up.
and the winner is….
Leah, the Best Dressed Girl.
She had the best time dancing on the stage.
I thought it was so cute that the little boy was trying his best to keep up with Leah. This is where she stayed the whole time we were there, and had a blast. I think at the end of this video, where she is wandering around looking lost? I think she was looking for the speaker. She couldn’t tell where the music was coming from.
We had our picture taken with John Wayne.
I usually don’t share pictures of myself, but since Leah took this picture, I had to post it.
A good time was had by all. The PTO sold hot dogs, chips, drinks, and snacks. I was grateful because that was the only supper I was going to get last night. It was pretty tasty.
I’m going to have to keep an eye out for the paper because there should be an article about the dance, and the winners!

Oh, and Horsey, I think he had a good time too.
