I'm a dancer wannabe. You know that Wannabe song by The Offspring, Pretty Fly For A White Guy?
Yeah, that's me, except I'm not a dude and I'm not a wannabe gangsta, I'm a wannabe dance'a! But pretty much the same thing right?
Since my dancing days have come and gone, I've decided to live vicariously through my niece, Kelsi. You know, like most moms who have never reached their dreams so they make their daughters achieve their goals of becoming a ballerina or pianist or professional shin kicker?
Yep, that's really a sport.
So I'm going to live my dream through Kels.
Kelsi is on her High school's drill team and she had her end-of-year dance show last week so of course I had to go! I love drill team competitions and apparently so does Brolan! He was loving the dancing and the music, it was so dang cute! Of course he was loving me more though, what baby doesn't?
I wish I was able to get some pictures of Kelsi dancing because she is amazing and I have to say she is the best dancer on her team. And I'm not just saying that because she is my niece, she is an awesome dancer and I know an awesome dancer when I see an awesome dancer and Kelsi is definitely an awesome dancer.
And guess what? She was voted to be the Captain of her drill team next year! The captain has the role of the President and Drill Mistress so it's a really big deal.
See? I told you she was awesome!!
So the tradition at these end-of-year drill team shows is to have all the dancers come out in their prom gowns, escorted by their fathers while the announcer reads a few thoughts about that dancer. So all the dancers were coming out with their fathers, some with their mothers, and when it was Kelsi's turn, she was escorted by...
Look closer at the girl in the beautiful turquoise dress...
It's Mr. Brolan Lee!
Isn't he the cutest escort ever? Sure, a little more drooly than the others but still the cutest! Kels wanted to surprise everyone and had him all decked out in this little suit with a darling bow tie and everything! She was the envy of all the girls.
Isn't my niece gorgeous? Yep, I'm a proud Auntie!
All these pics were taken with my phone so I apologize for the bad quality, but look at Bro and his cute little bow tie!
That's what I've decided his nickname should be, Bro. What d'ya think?
But this post isn't about Brolan, this post is about Kelsi!
I said Kelsi dammit!
