Naidc 2024 - Day 3: We just had our little Savi today! He did not get the recall he was hoping for, but he was 5 away in a very tough competition. Proud of this kid. Picture two is how we picture Savi…you know, not being the same time height as us. It’s rough seeing these kids grow up sometime, especially someone we’ve known since he was 2 years old. #omirishdance #kcirishdance #kansascity #irishdance #naidc2024 #nationals #northamericanirishdancechampionships #grapevine #texas ...
