If you have read my blog about me and the family then you already know we are pageant folks. Haileys first pageant of the year is Feb 16 we will travel to McComb Mississippi where she will compete in the preliminary for the Miss Teen Magnolia Pageant if she does well she will go on to compete at state level,
Her next pageant will be March 20, its just a small local pageant she will be competing just for fun in this one she will also be coaching her niece Gracie, and her cousin Macey in this pageant so she is excited about that. her next pageant will then be the school one held in April. Then to biggest of the year she will be going to the Mississippi gulf coast where she will compete on state level for the Ms High School pageant she has already won Ms Pine Belt locally if she wins state she will move on to nationals, and the grand finale is in Sept The Ms Mississippi Teen Pageant she now holds 3rd place but didnt make it to nationals this year she will try again if she wins here she will go to state in Jackson then if she places she can attend Nationals in California. Whatever she does this will be here last year for pageants she has decided to go into the business with her mom .
After many years in the pageant world I have decided to try my luck at holding my own pageants around the south and go into the coaching part so many little girls love being in pageants but I want them to realize its not about looks its about having fun and learning how to conduct themselves with dignity and grace in all situtions, I will have a small interview each pageant so the kids can learn how to speak in front of others nothing major just to give them more confidence we all need to know how to introduce ourselves in life both in school and in jobs so why not teach them young?
I will miss seeing my girls compete but Hailey has decided to move on to other things she wants to run in the breast cancer fun this year 3 days so she will be training for that soon, she also wants to join the Spirit of Women at Forrest general Hospital this is a volunteer service, and she wants to try out again for the varsity cheerteam so she wants to do some cheer camps this summer, He desire in life is to be a doctor so she feels other things will help in college applications. Im proud of the fact that already in the 9th grade she knows what her goals are in life and is taking small steps even now to reach them. She has been a great example for me she made her goal in 3rd grade knowing it would be hard and take a long time every class is to meet that goal, every grade is for her goal, every event in life is to make herself a better person to reach her goal if I can do that wow what I may achieve.
I will be posting pics of the pageants when we do them and of course Im gonna be bragging on her as well as Gracie they dont compete againest each other due to the ages but will be in the same pageants so I have a lot to do dresses to buy, business wear to find, talents to help with, its a chore but I love every single moment of it
