Ballet Recital

This year Elise wanted to do ballet while Cordelia has been taking gymnastics classes. Elise took classes with Miss Lucia, a woman who has endless patience and a gentle spirit. The class started with mostly just dance-y play. Eventually a small routine began to develop and the group of girls were ready for their first performance.

Now I am warning you that the following photos are dangerously adorable if you have a weak heart.

Here she is feeling confident and ready. She is one of those people who doesn't do a lot of fretting in advance. She lives in the moment.

Look at her!! Ahhhh!!! 

 My family calls this hereditary facial expression "sewing mouth." Basically is is a tight lipped look we have while working at something that requires concentration. 

She was so very proud of her performance and kept asking,"Today was the best day, right?!" It was a really good day indeed.

And here is this one again, because it is just too darling!
