Chicago Feis
(Chicago, IL - June 14, 2003)

The second feis I attended with only my family. We were visiting my grandma, so she and my uncle came along. He took many of the pictures.

I opted out of hardshoe despite placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in my three softshoe dances at the largest competition I've ever attended. It was hot and dusty and I was generally not having much fun being with people who didn't fully understand the world I was dancing in.

Me and my dad before the competitions began. Somehow, I managed to get out of that sweatshirt without peeling the wig off.

My grandma.

Can you spot Ashe?

Me and my mom.
