To believe in the things you can see and touch is no belief at all - but to believe in the unseen is a triumph and a blessing. ~Abraham Lincoln 

Where did March go??? Toward the middle of the month it seems we ran from one event to the next! It was an absolutely crazy, yet unbelievable weekends filled with more fun memories!

My oldest daughter Ally competed with her Hankinson Just for Kix group in Wahpeton and they took 3rd place! These little dancers were so much fun to watch and as a parent it is one of the best feelings to watch your daughter learn and grow in this sport, and to learn the concept of ‘team’.

Next Ally and I went to Fargo and with my ‘new sister’ Taylor, we joined another dear friend of mine for her daughter’s birthday celebration. We took part in the 3rd annual Macy Rae Day with a wonderful group of youth and dedicated adult mentors to celebrate Macy’s birthday! The guest of honor, Macy, looked absolutely beautiful and her parents couldn’t have been more proud! These children filled goodie bags for kids at the Ronald McDonald House and Sanford Childrens’ Hospital prior to our arrival. We then helped them feel decorate their own crowns and were able to visit with them a bit before we had to depart for our next activity!

My daughter Ally, Taylor, and I picked up one of our fabulous directors, Kathy and traveled to St. Cloud for the Minnesota International Pageant. For once the weather and roads were excellent! This was such a great opportunity to sit and observe the pageant and visit with the queens once again! We had a great time and stayed in some pretty deluxe accommodations that night before heading home on Sunday!
