::Hello everybody! It's December!! There is only 14 days left until my birthday not including today and the 16th. I'll be 13!! I can't believe it! I'll be a teenager! I'm so excited. There is also only 23 days until Christmas day. I can't wait!! We're going to Montreal again and we're staying at the same place. We loved it so much last year that we're doing it again. With December comes most of our performances. I have nine performances in December! I can't wait! The soonest is tomorrow. We have a performance at a retirement home. Then we have performances on the third, , ninth, eleventh, thirteenth and twentieth. You might be like, wait, that's not nine, that's only seven, but we have two on the ninth and the thirteenth. I'm SO excited! Please be praying that no one will get sick or injured. We need to be health and whole for our performances. I sprained my ankle the twenty-first and I thought I wouldn't be able to perform on the twenty-fifth, but God healed my ankle enough for me to dance. I am so thankful. I am completely better no and have absolutely no pain. With December comes many things. It also bring St. Nicks. I can't wait for that. December is an amazing month. As I'm writing this my mom is just putting the finishing touches on our tree. I think it looks amazing. I'll take a picture of the big tree and then a picture of the kids'(me included) tree. It's hilarious. Well, that's all I needed to say. Have a wonderful month and I will hopefully be writing again soonish. I will try to write about my performances, birthday, Christmas and our Montreal trip. Write you all later::

::Company Performances::

::Hello y'all! As you can see, this post is about my performances. I've done two performances so far! One was November 7th somewhere in Algonquin College. It was for a Christian group thing called Gracefield. This one wasn't a Christmas  ballet and for some reason we don't think of it as a REAL company performance. I don't know why. I think it's because it wasn't a Christmas ballet and apparently they've never done a non-Christmas ballet in the first term of Company. The second performance was on Wednesday(25) at the West Ottawa Community Church. The WOCC is also my dance school. It was a fundraiser for Arise and for the Company. This one was a Christmas ballet. The ballet is call Heaven Everywhere It was so much fun. If any of you want to see it, it's up on YouTube. I'll paste them here. 1. It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year 2. Where are you Christmas?(All of us in Company call it Newspapers though) 3. Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel 4. Jesus, Born on This Day 5. Heaven Everywhere 6. Go Tell It on the Mountain. I'm in the 1st, 2nd,  4th and 6th dance. It went by so quickly but it was amazing! I can't wait to do it 9 more times. I'm being serious. I'm doing Heaven Everywhere 9 more times. I'm so excited!! I hope you have all been having a great month/year, and I'll hopefully be writing to you soon! Ba-Bye::

::Dance Year 2015::

::The dance year of 2015 has begun!!!!! I love it. Monday was my very first day, and it was so much fun. I'm dancing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Thursday's I'm babysitting for the moms that are taking classes. Wednesday and Friday are the Arise Youth Ballet rehearsal days. The Company is SO much fun. I LOVE it. We've already learned one whole dance. It's a really fun dance. It's just as much acting as it is dancing. I can't wait to learn more dances and perform them for people. I hope everyone had a good summer! Bye::

::My Dance Recital::

::As promised here is my recital. I'll give you the whole show in case you want to watch the whole thing. I'll give you what parts my dances are. My first dance is jazz, and it's Part 1. This one was my favourite. Unfortunately we didn't dance it very well. We were all angry at ourselves.  My second is Part 6. This one is contemporary. I think we did a good job. Part 17 and Part 19 are the last of my dances. Part 17 is my ballet and Part 19 is my pointe dance. Part 26 is the finale with everybody. Here is the link: MY DANCE RECITAL. Hope you all enjoy it::

::Hello. Yesterday was my last dance class. I'm sad. I would  usually have class today, but I have to baby-sit. It's ok though. I like baby-sitting. I also have the emails of everyone in my class. I know this is VERY short, but I felt like writing. Hope your day goes will. Bye!!!

::Hello. As the title indicates, this post is about pointe shoes, recitals, and trips. I have had my pointe shoes for 3 months and have done 10 classes(+dress rehearsal and 2 recitals)with them. I have been enjoying it a lot. Thursdays are my favourite days of the week for that reason. It doesn't hurt as much as some people would think it does. If the shoes fit properly and you have toe pads, it doesn't hurt much. We had our annual recital last weekend.After March Break, we started working REALLY hard on recital dances, which is why I've been busy and had trouble writing. When I wasn't working, or out somewhere, I was practising. I had lots of dances for recital. It was SO much fun. I was in 5 dances(including the finale), so it was busy. If Arise posts the videos of our dances, I'll write another post and add them in. I won't go into detail about it so you'll have something to read, as well as watch, for the post. This post is also about trips. The trip I'm talking about here was in May. I know it was a while ago, but it was so awesome I had to write about it. We left April 30th(Thursday), and drove for 9 hours until we reached Maryland. In Maryland, we stayed at a tree-house camp. It was a camp in the hills, were you could rent little houses on stilts. How cool is that?! We got a little cabin called Robin. I'll post pictures when my dad finds them. It was awesome. On Friday morning after we ate breakfast and walked around for a bit, we went to the bathroom and started out for another 9 hour drive. We arrived in Georgia at around dinner time. We had Costco pizza for dinner with Rick, Susanna, and their kids. We spent the night at there house, and after lunch, we went to a park the meet with some other cousins. These cousins are Maryanne, Anna, Josh, Emma, and Will. Anna, Josh, Emma, and Will are Maryanne's kids. Anna is a few months older than me, so we get along really well. After we walked around and ate ice cream, instead of going back to Rick and Susanna's, I got to go spend the night at Anna's house. We were both REALLY excited. It had been 3 years since we'd seen each other, and 5 years since I'd been to her house. She's never been to my house yet. :( I had SO much fun at her house. We stayed up until 11:00 talking. In the morning (Sunday)all the cousins(that's what we call everybody from my mom's side) ,and my family, went to Mimi's(Aunty Barbara) in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Rick, Susanna and their kids, and Grace, Justin, and their kids , and of course Anna and her family, were there too. Grace had a little baby, who was absolutely ADORABLE!!!! She was the cutest thing I'd seen in a while. We stayed at Mimi's house for the rest of the week. We went to Look Out Mountain, went to a really pretty water park, and just hung out. On Thursday we drove back to Maryland and stayed in the some tree-house, and walked around and took more pictures. On Friday morning we headed out and got home at dinner time. After we unpacked, we went to Costco for hot-dogs and ice cream. It was an AMAZING trip. It was SOOO good to see the cousins again. I missed them SO much, and am missing them right now. Hope you liked this post. Random thing: It's raining REALLY hard outside. Oh!! I almost forgot. Tip to remember or you'll regret it: Don't go in a little, rocky creek without knowing you'll probably slip and get soaked. Hope you have a GREAT  weekend, and I'll try to post soon. Bye::

::I got my pointe shoes yesterday at 12:00 at Brio Bodywear. I was nervous when we first got to the store and Gilbert(the pointe shoe guy) took us into the point shoe room. He first looked to see whether the bones in my feet had fused together or not. My bones had not yet fused. He had my try on some pointe shoes to see if they were to small or not. He had my stand in first position in a pliƩ to see if my toes were straight or bent. Then he had me hold onto the bar and go up on pointe to see if they hurt a lot. If they hurt, they were crossed off the list. I ended up with Bloch Balance European size 5.5 x. The x is the width. No x is the skinniest and xxxx is widest. I'm a little sad because I have to wait a whole week before I can use them. We don't have dance during March Break :( I'll post pictures when I get home. Bye::

::Hunger Games::

::Hello everybody. I've been reading the 'Hunger Games' lately, and have been really enjoying it. I just finished the last book(Mockingjay) yesterday afternoon. It is an awesome series. I know my cousin really loves this series. I love Rue's Lullaby in book one. These are the verses:
Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open, the sun will rise.

Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet, and tomorrow bring them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes, and let your troubles lay
And it's morning they'll wash away.

Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here you dreams are sweet and tomorrow bring them true
Here is the place where I love you.

When you add the tune it's SO pretty. I haven't watched the movies, but my cousin sang it for me. I don't know what else to write, so I'll just say have great rest of the week!!::

::Hello everyone!! I don't really know what to write about. I'm sorry I haven't been writing. It's been busy getting back into routine with school after the Holiday Break. Our swimming lessons have started up again. We've been taking swimming at the JCC(Jewish Community Centre) for the past couple months. We started in September have liked it and are still doing it. I'm not in swimming but I'm still allowed to go in the pool and swim for fun. It's a great place for homeschoolers because you can book swim lessons at any time in the day pretty much. Dance started the week after the break. I died after the first week, but my body is getting used to it again. I don't really know what else to write about. Have a great week!!!!::
