Thank Heaven For Little Girls...

Mia's tap dance was to the song..."My heart Does a Little Dance" Beautiful to "A Lovely Night"
Mandy's Tap Dance to "Shake Your Groove Thing"...she was very concerned about appropriate dance moves to this song. She need not have been because it was very tastefully done...but you gotta love her heart... My eldest Beautiful Ballerina.... it makes me cry every time I see her do ballet...just gorgeous!Having fun being beautiful...
Mandy's ballet was danced to "Fly to Your Heart"

This past weekend was devoted to our "Dancing Divas". The weekend began on Thursday night with the arrival of family. All of the kiddos were so excited that Uncle J and Aunt L and their girls,along with grandma, would be coming for a visit. It was one of the rare times that the kids cleaned and worked to get the house in order without complaint. Friday brought a little family time, and then dress rehersal. Since it is a trial run, mom had to get the girls dressed in costume including hair and stage makeup. With Aunt L's terrific help, the girls were ready in plenty of time. We headed to the dance rehersal and left the remaining family members to prepare two of the boys for their ball games ( and one even had pictures that night). Both ball games were being played at the same time, so I for one was very grateful that grandma and other family was willing to step in and take our t-ball player to his game while daddy coached our eldest. Late night brought the arrival of more family. Nana, Aunt C and cousins arrived just in time for bed. We saw them the next morning for a large breakfast and even more family fun. The girls recital was scheduled for early afternoon which meant that we had to cut the visiting short to prepare. Thanks again Aunt L for helping with hair and makeup once again. The girls were so excited! We arrived early enough to check the girls in and find great seats. Friends met us there... our girls had quite the fan club this year. The performances were so beautiful for each of the classes. I love to watch our girls progress, and even daddy commented on how much learning and growth both girls have made. This year you could just sense that they had fun! They were smiling and dancing their hearts out. This years recital was a bit sad too. One of the girls favorite teachers is leaving the studio as she and her husband are moving. Ms H will be missed a great deal by my girls...they love her so! We look forward to a summer break and then the girls will be more than ready to join their classmates again for another year of learning dance for 2010-2011. My girls are such beauty's and I just love to see the joy that dance brings to their hearts. God has blessed them with great talent in this area, and it fills my heart with joy to see them worship Him with this talent.
