Molly Kate ready to dance in her “Good Ship Lollipop” costume
Husband Walter and I were excited to be present when granddaughter Molly Kate took her first dance trophy. Our 5-year-old dancer won overall for her tap solo in the 4 to 12-year-old category at a regional competition in November.
She danced to child star Shirley Temple’s trademark song “On the Good Ship Lollipop.”
I don’t know who was more excited, Molly Kate, her parents or her grandparents.

She is in her second year as a member of her dance studio’s “mini-dancers” competition team. She loves to perform, whether impromptu “stories” acted out for family at home or more formal performances on stage before a crowd.
Thank you to son Jeremy and daughter-in-law Katie for supplying photos.
