My daughter and I spent the last weekend together at the Wisconsin Springtime Feis and the Celtic Spirit Feis. I love spending time in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My daughter laughed at me as we drove into the city and said, “I could live here.” She told me I say that every time we drive into a large city. Hmmm, maybe I need to start exploring that idea.
But, this was the first Feis for my daughter trying out her new dress. She just picked it up on Thursday for the Feis this weekend. We got to buy her a new wig and it was fun having her try on the different wigs. I am not going to show the wigs she did not get but let’s just say she looked a bit like a demented Dolly Parton in a few of them.
My daughter had to take 6 weeks off from dancing because she had tendonitis in both ankles after St. Patrick’s Day. The only way to get rid of it is to fully rest her ankles. So she would go to dance class and do the core workout but no jumping, running, or dancing. She just went back to class two weeks ago but really wanted to give this Feis a try.
She only got a 5th in her traditional set the first day and a 4th in her traditional set on the second day but she did place 2nd in her treble reel and got a trophy so that made her whole weekend.
We are back home now and getting ready for a busy, busy, end to the school year! What did you do this weekend and are you getting ready for summer vacation?
