June has been very crazy for Kailyn (my oldest) there have been a lot of updates and amazing things that she has been involved in this month, mostly with her singing.
Kailyn competed in Kwanice music festival, a singing competition that takes place through out the province. Unfortunately this year they did not allow ANY video or camera's during the competition so I don't have any proof of the amazingly beautiful job that she did however she did take 3 first place finishes and 3 second place finishes during Kwanice.
She kinda kicked ass!!
During the award ceremony she received the Adjudicator's Choice Award for Top Junior Vocalist, the Luzviminda Folk Dance Troupe Trophy for Best Junior Folk Song and she also received a Festival scholarship.
and she was asked to preform during the award ceremony and the great thing about that is I got to record it.
Sorry about the quality of the video but my camera was no where to be found so I had to use Kay's camera.
Then the most amazing news came, Kailyn was recommend to compete in Provincials which was held on the 13th of June. That meant we had to leave for Provincials right after our 2011 JDRF walk...we were exhausted.
This was an amazing opportunity for Kailyn and a true eye opener at the amazing talent that Ontario has to offer. She sung 2 songs beautifully and bravely.
Boy let me tell you, hats off to this girl for standing up in front of people and judges and preforming.
After all the kids (young adults) where finished singing there was a WONDERFUL workshop which was another eye opening experience for Kailyn that showed her just how far she can go with a lot of hard work.
We were so very proud of her...I say we because this is something that my mom does with Kay, I can't take any credit for this. She pays for the lessons and week after week she brings her there, she enrolls her in Kiwanis. She does a lot for Kailyn and her singing! THANKS MOM!!
In September I will be a mother of a high schooler...YIKES!!!
That is right Kailyn graduated this June from grade 8. Congrats Kay and I hope you try really, really hard next year...because this year, well...
