Final Night Of Cotillion!

Well, Claire completed her 5 week Cotillion Class and much to her original dismay, she ended up having a great time and learning along the way.  Last night was Parent Night, so she got to show off her skills to Lance, and then dance with him as well! Let's just say Claire has the rhythm....Lance not so much!

Claire giving Lance the eye why doing the Waltz......

Glad Claire tried something new and we are so proud of her for that!!!

Busy week for Claire!

 Well, Claire just returned from her 3 day 6th Grade Field Trip to Camp McDowell in Alabama.  They had lovely weather, and 3 days of canoeing, hiking, and all type of group trust exercises.  And lots of bugs and wildlife along the way!  She came absolutely thrilled but exhausted....and wants to return!
Claire went to her 4th week of Cotillion (one week left!) and it was a Dinner Dance where she had to eat a 4 course meal and dance with boys in her grade.  She said it wasn't nearly as awkward as she thought!  We are proud of her for breaking out of her comfort zone for a few hours these past weeks!!! More pics to come soon!
