11 years old! Wow, how did she grow up so fast? Lunch at In-N-Out Burger, red velvet birthday cake and ice cream at home, swimming at the pool and the finale: The Ivins 24th of July parade. What a fun week and OH, how we love those kids!

2010 Desert Stars

Whitney and Alyse spent a week with us and enjoyed classes at Tuachan. They went every day for 1 hour each of training in dancing, singing and acting . 3 hours each day total.
At the end of the week they were in the production and had solo parts in their own special area in which they had been selected. Whitney had both a singing solo and a speaking solo. Alyse had a solo as a dancer. All the parts were rather small since almost all performers were given a chance to "shine." They said they loved it and would like to do it again!
