We have a new love/obsession at the Lee House.
Ella started Irish Dancing about a month ago 
and it is all she does!
 She comes home from school, goes straight to her room to get her soft shoes and then usually dances until Murray gets home.  It is so fun to watch her do something that she really loves.
 I remember the day I started clogging (Yes.  I was a clogger.  I clogged for 10 years!  I do not have any pictures to share, but I am sure there are some good ones!).  I remember meticulously picking out the perfect outfit (i remember exactly what I wore), being so excited/nervous the entire day before my first practice, practicing all the time and everywhere I went and then waiting and waiting ALL week long for my next practice.  
So every day when Ella gets home and asks if today is the day she goes to dance, 
I completely understand the agony she is going through!


  1. She's so cute! How in the world did you guys settle on Irish dancing? Because it's close to clogging?

  2. long story...started out wanting to do tap so we started watching youtube videos to see if that was what she really wanted to do. did not want to do tap, so of course i showed her clogging. clogging was not what she wanted. but once she saw the irish dancing videos, she was hooked!
