and with her pairs partner Charlotte took second place.
great job Jenny you were fantastic.
and well done Charlotte you make a great team.
Thanks also to Libby Graham, For improving their dancing 100%.
I know its not a hubpages thing lol but hey its not often I get to brag lol.....jimmy
It is highly commendable to see a Dad promote his children's success with sincere, uplifting actions & words. You are a blessing to your children that will make their lives much better for your efforts. Truly, you have blessed their lives. Thanks for letting us see this.
Yeehaaa! Jennifer and Bryan! Congratulations. Well done!!!!
Baloons going up, confetti coming down...It takes real commitment to do what you do...Keep up the good work...
Jimmy to be proud of your children and to bragg a little about their accomplishments is just the perks of parenthood.
Kindest regards to your wife, to you and the sproutlets
oh that's beautiful...i love it when parents allow themselves to brag about their kids. it does enhance their sense of worth. you are truly a blessing in this world! go, go , go!
It's wonderful to be proud of your children's efforts and successes. I've longed for that from my own parents since I could remember and I'm still mostly longing. But I'm learning to let go and somehow they've started showing a bit of pride in the things I do. So with this, I know your children knows how much they mean to you. Keep it up Jimmy. (Btw, the thread is not dying...heheh)
Jimmy, what a wonderful thing to read this morning! My children are my world too, and if I could, I would write every post and every hub all about them. Congratulations to your two shining stars!! I have to remind you that my absolute favorite Hub of yours is the one that has to do about being RICH - and you describe about how you already are. Your family provides all the riches that you need. Cheers, Steph
What is a "dance ban?" And what does it mean that Jenny "lost her first life?"
Hi Maddie , my children changed to a different dance school which meant that they could not dance in competition for 3 months.
when you start dancing you recieve 3 lives, if you win first place, second place or in bigger competitions 3rd place you lose a life if you lose 3 lives you move up to a higher standard.
thanks Maddie I should have explained earlier.....jimmy
Excellent, Jimmy! Thanks for the explanation. "Losing a life" sounded like a bad thing, but I see it's actually good!
Thanks for clearing that up Jimmy. I was going to comment and then I thought, "Dance ban? Jimmy banned his kids from dancing for 3 months? What a bastard, I am saying nothing." lol
In that case, congratulations.
Sounds like those kids have the foundation of discipline - and the ability to take tough choices and not slack off the training while they were banned - which will stand them in good stead for success in any field for the rest of their lives.
You are obviously doing a great job as parents. Well done. It really takes something to support kids in serious competition in any field, and to do it with good humor under pressure is truly remarkable.
Your kids are very lucky.
