It's Monday night. Last Sunday, Ariel had her second competition of the season. We had to be in Toms River, New Jersey, about an hour and 15 minutes away by 8:30 in the morning so it was early. She was happy and singing in the car most of the way but then got very quiet and nervous. There is Coach Steve!
Who found this place?
Ariel got her hair done.
Looking cute girls!
The parents nervously waited.
The girls were nervous too.
Look at Ariel holding her arms.
Pre performance shot.
Here they go! My hands were shaking!
Here are some stills I took. I will post the professional ones later.
And they finished. Ariel thought she messed up and was crying.
She needed hugs from the coaches but didn't want to talk to anyone else.
I took her out to get donuts.
This place is highly rated. We brought back donuts for all the girls.
