it's that time of year again








It always amazes me how quickly the year goes by. It's almost time for Payton's dance recital again...how is it already June? This little girl just loves her dance class every Wednesday morning. Tap, especially. She was very excited to get her new beige tap shoes for recital (I had bought her black ones at the beginning of the year not realizing that they were supposed to have beige. Oops.), and she wears them constantly. It's cool to see how much she's learned since she started dancing last year. They just grow up too fast!



Looking at these pictures just gives me total deja-vu of when I was dancing. I can remember it like yesterday...my mom doing my hair and make-up, taking pictures and getting me all ready to go onstage...it is still sometimes hard for me to believe that I am the mama now! (and I'm sure that after over 30 years of this, my mom has a hard time believing that she's still sewing dance costumes! Thanks, mom!!) Anyways, this was Payton all dressed up for her dress-rehearsal. Recital is next weekend and then dancing is done till September...yay! I am just ready for summer and no schedules. Anyone else feelin' the same way?

Sienna yesterday: "I'm going to my ballet class tomorrow." :) Oh, you are... :) Sienna's been bugging me about starting dance classes (where did that come from?). I always thought Sienna would be too shy but maybe she wouldn't be. ??
