Hello from Denver

Kennedy and I are relaxing in our hotel room in Denver right now. We drove up yesterday morning for KDA's first competition of the season. Yesterday, Kennedy's hip hop group performed and did great!! They got a high gold award and first place for their division. After awards, Kennedy and I checked in at our hotel, changed into jammies, crawled into bed, watched some tv and crashed early. It was the end to a very long week so sleep was GOOD!

Today we got up, ate breakfast and headed back to competition where Kennedy did her solo. :) She did a pretty good job. She forgot a couple parts but she kept on dancing and improvised well. :) She got a gold medal and 2nd place in her division. She's competing with the juniors this year instead of the minis because of her age so it's going to be a tough competition season for her. As long as she has fun and does her best, I'm not too worried! ;)

The KDA kids rocked the stage! I loved watching a lot of the numbers I hadn't seen before. There's still a lot I missed but I'm sure by the end of the season we will see them all. :)

Kennedy and I went to lunch with some friends and now we are back at the hotel again. Kennedy has two doctors appointments here in Denver on Tuesday and Wednesday morning (at two different children's hospitals!) so my mom offered to just put us up here until Wednesday so we didn't have to drive back and forth all week. We are so thankful!

Frank is on daddy duty with the other kids. They are having fun! They went bowling and played arcade games last night and I heard they went out for ice cream today. :) Frank will get the boys to school the next 3 days (Kassidy walks) and finish cleaning out our old house during the day. Almost done!! We just have some junk... Errrr stuff... left in our garage.


Tuesday Kennedy goes to the eosinophil clinic which we've been waiting for since September or so. This is the special GI doc who deals with kids who have problems with excessive eosinophils. Hopefully he will have some ideas on how to help her. Wednesday we go back to ENT for a recheck from getting her ear tubes placed. Hopefully she will pass her hearing test this time.

Tomorrow we are going to find something fun to do here in Denver. I was thinking about the zoo but I don't want to freeze! LOL I will look things up later. We plan on going out for some dessert in a little bit and then heading to bed early again. Ahhh I love sleep! Thankfully Kennedy does too! Haha

Anyway, that's all that's going on here! Hope you all are well.

Ps. I'm attaching pics here but I have no idea how or where they're going to show up in the post! LOL Silly app is not user friendly!

What a fun little mini vacay. So many great reasons Frank is home. Have fun in Denver. Is there maybe a Children's Museum you could take her to tomorrow?

Does she compete against kids her own age when doing a solo?

Cindy said...

Congratulations Kennedy!! The girls look great in their costumes. We love staying in hotels; the room service, many have pools, game rooms. It's like being on vacation even if you don't leave town! Hope you enjoy your week!

Way to go, Kennedy!
Lifting up prayers right now!
Psalms 34:15, 17-19 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry...The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

BTW, if you ever in the market for a GI doctor, I LOVE Dr. Ted Stathos! His practice is in Lone Tree, so the drive would be shorter, and he is kind, caring, personable, and knowledgeable.

So I don't think my comment went through. Things to thInk about doing: art museum, very good activIties to engage kids in art including dress up!, zoo (the indoor Tropical Discoverybor Bird World), Downtown Aquarium ( not my fave, ESP. If you've been to those by the ocean), I have heard there is a doll hospital near downtown as well as a museum of miniatures. Enjoy!

Praying hard in Seattle!
Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Aww she's so cute and looks so happy. Glad you all got a place to stay in Denver. That little snow storm in the Springs turned in to a couple inches last night and it supposed to drop 2-3 more inches tonight. Yay. I get to drive to Denver tomorrow lol. Hope the Drs go good and you get answers. Prayers are with you!
