Regional Championship in Denver!

What a crazy few weeks! Our dancers have been gearing up for this past weekend for 6 months. We had 5 dancers compete at regionals! And wouldn't you know a week before regionals and I end up having to have emergency surgery to have my gallbladder removed. we were on pins and needles waiting to hear if I could even go. I had my ticket I should leave Friday morning. I was resting and taking it easy so that I would be as ready as I could be. I got the news Thursday afternoon that I could go! Yeah I was thrilled! So Friday 7 Murphy Highland Dancers were making their way to Denver!
