At the ballet...

Maddie has been looking forward to this day for a long time! She has opened her eyes almost every morning and said that she is ready for ballet class. She has AT LEAST 10 different books about the ballet and I'm pretty sure that we've read all of them every night this week. She even took one of the books to school for Show-and-Tell so that Ms. Preeti would read it to the class...

She has several ballet outfits, but she understands that the special tutu outfits are only for performances, according to the 10 books. So she was content in her tights and leotard! When her teacher opened the classroom door and asked students in the hallway who was ready for ballet class, Maddie every so sweetly looked up to her with big blue eyes and said, "I am ready for ballet class." It's difficult to catch the breathless sound of her voice in this blog, but it's a moment I will never forget.

Parents aren't allowed in the classroom as there will be a final performance during the last class. So I sat outside her classroom for an hour and listened to Maddie giggle with delight as she danced on her tippy toes oh so high! When class was over she even ran back to her teacher, Becky, so that she could give her a big hug.

She is such a little girl!!!! :)

    That's pretty serious business, dancing on tippy toes! No wonder you konked out on the way home! You already look the part of a "star", just check out those shades! I don't think I've ever seen you look more like her Mommy, as I do when looking at that picture of you sleeping! What fun! Enjoy the dance, Maddie...'cause, life is a dance. Just ask your Aunt Sissy!

    Maddie, you will have so much fun being a ballerina. When I was a little girl, I took tap, toe, ballet, and adodjeo. You look lovely in your leotards. And, I bet you like it that Mommy is waiting for you outside after you are finished. Have Mommy take more pictures. I miss you and love you. Have fun dancing.w
