After two years of anticipation, Lily is finally in dance class. She's in a combination class that has 30 minutes of ballet, 30 minutes of jazz, and 1 hour of tumbling. It's a long class and she's usually pretty tuckered out by the end, but it's only once a week. By far, her favorite thing is prancing around in her ballet shoes and twirling in her skirt.
On the first day of class I stayed and took a few pictures through the window. This is totally typical of Lily:
All the other girls are studiously doing their ballet positions while Lily is just off in her own "I'm a ballerina" world. After I gestured at her through the window, she started paying attention.
She's been having a great time and she came home the other day, her face flushed with excitement. "Mama, I did my very first cartwheel!" I have yet to see it duplicated, but she's getting there.
This is what you get when you cross a Drama Queen with a Photo Mama.
