My Little Dancer
Arianna had her first day of dance today. She was very excited. She has taken ballet in a Mommy and Me class when she was 2 and has been in Ballet summer camp twice. But this is the official first time of dropping her off by herself for an official Preschool Dance Class. She came out of class glowing. I asked her if she liked it and she said "No, I loved it!". Then she asked me if I knew where ballet was from? She told me France.
She is excited that she gets to get a costume and be in a recital at the end of the year. I danced from age 9-18 and loved it. It is so sweet to see her take up something that I enjoyed as a child. We give her a choice of one activity per semester and she chose dance for this semester.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers
Live in a way that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
