Bustin' with pride

I just received a call from DD#2's highland dance teacher. DD#2 has been chosen to go to Edmonton in Nov to compete for the BATD Highland Scholarship! Every year she writes a theory exam, which includes dancing and oral questions. She scored so high that she, along with another dancer from her class, have been invited to compete for this scholarship. This is a North American scholarship so she will be competing against other dancers from Canada and the US in three catagories, written theory, solo choreography and a master class combining the two. We are busting our buttons we are so proud of her. Her teacher said that a few years ago when she had another dancer chosen there where only 25 in the group. From all of N.A. What an honour. I told DD that the next few months won't be easy for her. She needs to be very prepared for alot of hard work. Good thing she's so very freakin' smart
Sorry for the ramble, I'm going to Snoopy dance for a while now.
