"Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind, don't ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot. And there ain't any real difference between triplets and the insurrection."

The Third Times A Charm
HE DID IT!!!
Finally, finally on his 3rd try at a dance competition, Kyle didn't chicken out. He danced all 3 of his dances and brought home a 3rd place medal in his single jig. I was so proud that he did it, even while shaking with fright, that I almost cried. After the last two failed competitions, he cried and said, "I'm so stupid". He said the same thing this morning only with the added, "that I missed the last two feissana (plural of "feis" or festival). I just knew once he made it through even one dance, he'd be fine. He gripped my Mom's tiny Rosary in his hand for good luck. Thanks mom.
Kendra and Kieran did a good job at their dances but didn't place.
