"We haven't done a pageant for a while, because we're so busy with our show and school and life in general," Shannon tells In Touch Weekly.

June says seven-year-old Alana misses being on the stage and in front of people, but she's also getting into "new things," and they still have friends who are still into it.

"We still have all our pageant friends," she says. "We go along and cheer on our other pageant friends."

The 33-year-old mother of four -- and grandmother of one -- says Alana hasn't yet "found that new niche" she wants to get into, but she's confident she will.

June also tells Us Weekly that she's confident that the family's Toddlers & Tiaras spin-off will be around for a while, so viewers will get to see Alana explore many of her interests in the future.

"It can end as quick as it begins," she says. "I don't think we're going anywhere anytime soon, but you never know."
