Sterling Stars Dance Clinic

This weekend Emma had the opportunity to participate in the Sterling Stars Dance Clinic.  This let her have three hours of instruction with the Stars at Sterling High School.  This brought back a lot of memories for us, as we both graduated from Sterling and Brandie was in the Stars!  On top of the clinic, they had a small performance for us, and Emma did well and had a great time.  They are going to also get to perform at halftime of the Baytown Sterling-Baytown Lee crosstown showdown game next Friday, pictures of that to come!

Emma at Dance

Along with her gymnastics classes she has started, Emma is also taking dance classes.  She is taking ballet and tap and so far seems to be enjoying it.  The classes are held at the same location as her gymnastics classes, and we are looking forward to seeing her perform in a recital!

Twenty Years

Today, twenty years ago, Brandie and I started dating.  On Sunday we will have been married for 12 years. It sounds like a long time when you say it, but we love each other more now than we did when love first struck!  Brandie had this on the computer when I got home tonight with this song playing as a way to express her love to me:
