4-H Dance Team "Growin' Up Like That" Pics

Over President's Day weekend, Mary and Benjamin's 4-H club participated in "Johnson County Club Days".

Mary signed up to be on the Competition Dance Team.

Dancing since age three, she's only participated in tap and ballet, so country line dancing was a totally new experience for her. At age 8 and the youngest on the dance team, she did great learning all of the steps.

I don't have a lot of still pictures as I was also trying to manage the iPad to take video. Still trying to figure out how to transfer/download the video off the iPad onto my computer. I'm a technology Luddite! As soon as I can figure it out I will share.

Below, is the Rodney Atkins song the team used for performance.

Sharing nervous giggles before performing...(she's so animated...I have no idea *ahem* where she gets that from!)

Cute girl got to get brand new cowgirl boots for the occasion!

Rehearsal before going on stage...

Actual performance pics...

Her Club's team did a great job!  Took a purple ribbon (I'm still new to all this 4-H stuff so I'm not even sure what that color ribbon means.) and so we go to Topeka, KS for Regional Competition in March!

Oh my...she's really just "growin' up like that!"



  1. How fun does that look? And my yes, she is quite the grown up young lady, Valerie! Beautiful!

  2. Looks like she is having a great time!
    Enjoy the snow, I hear by the grapevine that we have more on
    the way.

    M :)

  3. So sweet! Dance is something very dear to my girls' hearts. I think it was two years ago that I was watching Sierra onstage and thinking, "Ohhhh. She's not a little tiny dancer anymore. She's a Big-girl dancer, now". Bittersweet :)

  4. How CUTE!! I bet she just had a ball doing this :) Lookin' good, too!
