The Flinders in Indianapolis March 17, 2008

Posted by mcflavocat in Uncategorized, Valpo Ricks.

We made it! We had a fun, though tiring, trip to Indianapolis this weekend. We left on Friday so that we could spend some time as a family. We took the kids to the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis. It was awesome! It is actually the largest children’s museum in the world. The only thing we were disappointed with was that the museum closed at 5 pm so we only got to spend a couple of hours there. Marcus did end up taking the boys and Mikey, the little brother of Kali and Maria—dancer friends of Meagan, back again on Saturday after Meagan’s dances were over. We decided that purchasing a year’s membership was worth it; the boys had a great time there and definitely want to go back again. The boys also got to go swimming at the hotel on Friday night. Meagan was practicing her dances, so unfortunately she didn’t get to swim.

Meagan and her dance team did extremely well. All of Meagan’s dances received platinum ratings; the judging is done on a points scale—platinum is the highest rating you can receive. Her trio also won first place overall for junior duet/trio. Their group numbers took first and second place overall for the junior small group category, with the tap number taking first and the jazz number taking second! All of the soloists on her team received platinum or high gold ratings; they also all placed in the top six overall solo dances for their age groups. Pretty amazing for the studio’s first competition! They were entered in the national league, which is an intermediate instead of elite league, so there is definitely room for improvement, but we were thrilled with how well they did!

We’re glad to be safely home. Now we’ve just got to unpack everything!

Love to all,

I am glad you guys were able to make Indianapolis a family affair. Way to go, Meagan. It sounds like the children’s museum is stellar. I like the hands-on activities at places geared toward children. 🙂
