Our three beauties after the dress rehearsal
The girls had their end of year ballet recital at the big downtown auditorium on Friday night. Steven Joseph and I (plus baby Katie) watched the first half, and then Daddy and Tommy joined in after intermission since the girls' dances were at the very end. They did a lovely job and we are very proud of them! It was a big challenge to try out a new dance studio when we first moved here, and then we opted to try this other dance studio last summer. We have been much happier here and the girls have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new friends, continuing their ballet training, and performing in the Nutcracker and the recital. They missed quite a bit of classes this semester while we were out of town for the baby's birth, but they jumped right back in, quickly learning the recital dances. I love watching them dance; they enjoy being on stage so very much. Their smiles and eyes light up while they're dancing, and they light up my heart too!
