All About MarissaThis post is all about Marissa. She is the best sister ever.
So while in our transition phase of moving to NYC, I have gotten to see a lot more of this girl during our stay in NJ. We came just in time for her dance recital, to sub for my parents since they were in Scotland, as she performed two hip-hop numbers and a jazz routine. Of course I thought she was the best dancer on stage. Going to the recital also took me on a trip down memory lane as I watched and thought all about my dancing days. It made me miss dancing big time, but it was exciting to see how much Marissa has grown just this past year and what a lovely dancer she is becoming.
Shawn and TJ were supportive brothers and went to watch her perform as well.
The following week was Marissa's 8th grade graduation ceremony.
We stood in the back row of the bleachers where just Marissa and all of the graduates facing the audience could see us standing, doing the wave to cheer Marissa on. Afterwards she told us she was so embarrassed because everyone in her grade saw us (the only family standing and waving around like crazy people), but I think she secretly liked it!
During the entire graduation and as I took pictures of her and her friends, I kept thinking to myself, "Is she seriously going to be in high school next year?!"
Congratulations Marissa! Love you lots!
