First Ballet Recital
Michaela Byrd danced in her first ballet recital mid-May. The girls in the youngest classes (Creative Movement) have their recitals in the studio because the teacher feels like they perform better in a less "stressful" environment...and I have to agree. They were precious, and each girl got to perform a short solo!
First Kindergarten Graduation
We attended our first kindergarten graduation, for my Natalie...and I managed to keep from crying! She also got to carry the American Flag, which is a real honor at this school to be chosen.
First Time on Stage
And, to her great delight, Natalie had the opportunity to dance on a real stage this year with her ballet class. She was really nervous about it, but (to my delight) when the lights came on, she was one of the only girls in her class to smile and look at the audience while she danced. A star is born?
With "business" behind us, it's time for fun: VBS, a trip to the beach, library mornings, and yes...the pool!
What fun things are you enjoying now that Summer is here?
