Dance, Ballerina, Dance

For whatever reason, I have not been very motivated to blog lately.

I promised to do a post just about Baby Girl, but I really couldn't come up with one that wasn't a whole lot of "wow my kid is so awesome, here is a list of why I think that way."

Part of me wants to capture what life is like for this 7 and a half year old girl. The drama, the attitude, the little girl antics still evident, but becoming less so.

So I am going to try and do some little "snapshots" of her life.

Starting with dance.

She is a dancing queen. Always she is dancing and singing and prancing around. We started her in dance class when she was 3 years old. She will be in her 4th recital this summer and she is still really focused on ballet.

I played "professional photographer" at her dance class a few weeks ago.

It took a lot to get pictures of her in action, because every time she would see the camera, she would stop and do a crazy glam pose and totally disrupt the class. So I lurked in the doorway and held the camera down and snuck a few shots.

Of course I love it that she loves to dance. I did tap for years and always secretly wished I could do ballet. Let's just say I wasn't exactly ballerina material.

I hope she continues to enjoy this for years to come. Mostly I hope she has this kind of joy and love for everything she decides to do in her life.

How sweet! We're starting Ava in dance class right now (she's newly three) and I'm hoping she takes to it like I think she will...I did ballet, jazz, modern, and hip-hop (LOL!) growing up, but never tap! Ava's taking tap this month at our rec center and if she handles a class situation well, then I'll sign her up at our local dance studio...
