Ballerina Girl

Dance has always been a major part of my life. I danced from age 3-18 and on through college... I obviously don't want to "force" dancing on my girls, but I'll admit that I was incredibly slightly excited when she said she wanted to dance. Well, she had an amazing year with Mrs. Natalie... this is one of the few things that we never have to "make" her go to... she hops out of the car and runs into class. So happy that she has found something she loves. :)

This is Addie and Clara with Mrs. Natalie. During their last class before recital, they had "Princess Week." The girls got to wear their favorite princess costume and they danced, sang songs, ate cupcakes, and celebrated a great year. So much fun!

 Those eyelashes!

Addie's first recital was on June 7. She was in the "Creative Movement" class, so they performed one ballet number in the show. She was super excited!

This was Addie and her sweet friend, Clara, before the dress rehearsal. Addie loved getting dressed up, wearing make up, and being on the stage. I was worried that she'd be nervous with all of the people watching, but she was a pro! I was super proud of her... and may have cried the whole time. :)

See? Sweet girl!

Brooke, Addie, and Clara
I'm praying they'll still be together in class next year. Such sweet girls!

Love my tiny dancer!

All of our family came to see Addie. Once I get those pics from my mom, I'll have to post them. Addie loved having them, and Eric and I were appreciative that they all took time to come. :) Addie is already looking forward to dance this year... she gets to take ballet and tap! :)
