my little ballerina



Wow....



Today was a big day for us. It was Payton's very first ballet class and she was so sweet. She was so excited and has been talking about "dancing" all summer. I've been preparing her for the past few days...telling her that she'll dance in the big studio with her teacher and her friend, Lily and that mommy will wait for her in the hallway. I wasn't really sure how she would be without me since she's with me 24/7 and I teach her little class at church but she was awesome...totally ready to go! As soon as her teacher told the girls to give their mommies hugs, Payton was done with me! Hehe! We had a couple tears after she fell at one point, but other than that it went great. I am so proud of my little girl!! I can't believe that I actually have a child in dancing....I am the mommy now, not the student or the teacher for that matter....very very crazy for me. This hobby/profession of mine is really coming full circle now. Like I said before....wow!! I am excited to see how the year goes and how she does....my little girl!!













Okay, so that was at the top of the list for today, but yes, I am home from Creative Escape and it was awesome. I promise to do a whole post where I share about the trip and show you all the projects we made...it was so fun. Kim and I spent Sunday morning suntanning and swimming and then we went back to our room and scrapbooked for the rest of the day....it was so nice to actually complete all the projects we started...just a few things here and there I need to do on my projects and that's it!

So I promise I will post about Creative Escape soon....bye for now!!

Payton looks adorable! That's so fun that she is taking dance, and that she likes it so much already. Keslie loved her dance class too, and it was so much fun watching her.

Glad you had fun at CE, can't wait to hear about it!

These pictures are really so precious... It is a wierd feeling having your daughters take on something you were so passionate... I know the feeling... my 2 "bonus" daughters are cheerleaders in school and I was involved in cheerleading for nearly 15 years... very good feeling! Enjoy it!

She is such a sweet ballerina! You did a great job capturing her 1st day. Caleb Davis had his 1st music class this week. It was a lot of fun. Take Care!

What a doll! Not only is she the cutest, but she's probably the best in her class, too. That girl has been dancing since birth! Can't believe how big she's getting. Oh, and your last post of her singing is hilarious. Born to be a star, that girl! xo, Jody

Ohhh....So cute! I love it! I love the one of her looking at herself in the mirror...She's probably thinking "I'm a real Ballerina!" hehe! Love it!
