This year Alyvia really shined! She just kept doing more and more awesome things! A few notes to mention this year:
Alyvia tried out and got a solo part in her school choir which she performed at the spring concert. She sang Elphaba's part in For Good. We were so proud of her. I would've never done that! She sounded awesome and got so many compliments afterward.
Alyvia's teacher commented to me that she was a wonderful girl to have in class, she commented on her writing and loved her stories. Alyvia did well in all of her school work.
This year was a great year for swim team! Alyvia was one of the swim team's top 3 swimmers in free style and backstroke! She was able to go to all of the A meets, divisional relays and D2 divisionals where she swam backstroke. Only the top 2 times on the team get to swim in this meet. She finished off with a lot of ribbons and a trophy! She has a beautiful stroke, I'm jealous!
To top off a wonderful year, we decided to take her to NYC to see Wicked for her birthday! I figured if she could sing it, she'd better get to see it. Everything was planned out and then I got a dreaded email… "We hope you enjoyed your show!" "What?!" Yes, I had done the worst thing ever… I bought the tickets for the wrong day! I know, horrible! After crying my eyes out and throwing up (not really, but almost), I called the theater and they said I could use the tickets in the fall when they weren't sold out anymore. Phew! Not perfect, but it worked. So, Alyvia being the angle that she is was ok with that and we just went to NYC and had a blast on her birthday anyways and are planning to return in the fall to actually watch Wicked. Here are some pics from her epic birthday:
