Winter Feis

Winterfeis. Its been a few weeks and I have been horrible about updating everything....

So, Winterfeis was interesting.  First off, it was the very first time our little &over Adult 4 hand competed. I whipped together the capes and belts for our team, and we did pretty well.  It started a bit rough, but we got our lines right and kept the smiles on our faces!

As for solo competition... we started the day off by getting to the feis 2 hours early. Mostly because I had misread the schedule. Ooops! Luckily, the outlets were only a few minutes down the road so we were all able to head over and spend a little time shopping. Once solos actually got started... it was a MAD DASH!  I barely made it on stage for Reels.  They started early... which is shocking since feisanna almost never run on time. Much less early. Also... they had us competing 3 at a time. Which is rough since we don't compete on the largest of stages and most of us are over 5'5... so it was a bit of a cluster. Grrr....

But... I did feel pretty good about my steps. Especially my hornpipe! I have been struggling with these lately... not because I don't dance them well... but I COULD NOT PLACE THEM OUT OF NOVICE.  But... my awesome buddy Julie (also a teacher and champ at our school) gave me the best advice ever. "Just dance it like you dance in class".  Um... ok. So I did.
And I placed my HPs! Woot! Out of 14 people... I kicked some butt. Which was awesome. The rest of the feis was good... now to work on placing things out of prizewinner!
