Ellie's best birthday gift of all was joining Mary Clare's dance class today! She has watched all year through the window, practicing it all at home. She was the best newly-3-year-old I've ever seen! She knew all the moves and went right along with everything, with a HUGE smile on her face the whole time! She told everyone that she got to dance yesterday...so excited! Mary Clare's only comment, "I was scared she was going to wet her pants!" Everyone was so proud of Ellie!
Ballerina walks, she's last in line
Skipping--she just learned this in the past few days, it's a hard skill for a 3 year-old!
And side-gallops. Mary Clare is galloping across the front of the room and Ellie the back :)
Looks like we've got a future prima ballerina on our hands :)
After ballet we went to a nice nearby restaurant on the waterway with my parents. Then out to ice cream! It was a fun day!
