Itโ€™s most likely I said something ridiculous ๐Ÿค“ What was also ridiculous was Jackieโ€™s voice...and her dress. Ridiculously fabulous, as is she โค๏ธ #girlchat #jackieclarke #girlonfire #geyserdress

In a day when nothing at all went quite to plan, the only thing that truly mattered actually did ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ When I made a last minute flight change to the latest one possible so I could watch this beautiful one and her gorgeous friends perform in the school talent quest final, only to then find out that I would likely miss them anyway (their performance: sometime between 7.30-8pm; check in close: 7.55; travel time to airport: 30mins+), needless to say I was pretty gutted. I mean life happens that way sometimes but I wanted to see the show! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ Nonetheless I rolled my (large) suitcase (have never been a light traveller) up to the school hall (embarrassing, Mum!), took in the first half of the show and, literally as I was about to order my Uber, they came on! I was so happy (tears in my eyes happy)...and so so proud of all 4 girls. They have considered and negotiated song choices, timing, choreography, rehearsal times, costuming and hair style at each of the 3 stages of the competition. New music chosen and a different dance learnt each time coz they wanted to give the crowd something new every time (performance rule numero uno: consider your audience). There were (temporary) falling outs along the way and life lessons learnt about friendship, differences and compromises. They worked it through between them and, watching them dance together today, you would never have known that they hadnโ€™t been completely in sync the whole way through. Learning through life experience just can not be overrated. As for me, Iโ€™ve arrived in Nelson, later than planned, extremely underprepared to present to 200 people first thing in the morning (writing my preso now)...but that is how I roll these days...and itโ€™s life...and I am a very proud and happy Mumma โ˜บ๏ธโค๏ธ #proudmumma #ameliedawn
