Today we attended our first Irish Dance competition. It was regionals, called an Oireachtas.
We were bewildered and amazed.
Yes, we were in a room of spray tanned legs and giant curly wigs, but we were also in a room of wonderful dancers moving their feet with amazing speed and accuracy.
It was fun.
Two of the three teams that my friends children were in placed and received medals. We spent the down time wrangling little ones, eating at Texas Roadhouse, devouring their rolls, and just enjoying the company.
After I got home I saw a highschool classmate's picture on FaceBook, not only were they at the same event, I was standing next to his son's team right before the awards.
Crazy small world.
