Walk the Line

No, this is not a Johnny Cash video... it's Abby at her ballet class. She's come a long way since dance camp this summer and running laps around all the other girls.

Usually (or as Abby likes to say, "Loo-shaly"), ballet class is closed for moms. We have to peek in the door when we want to see what's going on. But yesterday, the teacher had a "Parent Observation" day and of course, I brought the camera along.

Getting ready to start.

Standing in her spot on the tape line.

Stretching high to the ceiling.

Waiting for her turn.

All in a line. I think she has good form, don't you?

Picking imaginary flowers out of a garden. She's practicing the different position for her arms. Anyone know which position this is?

Man! She's flexible!

Saying, "Goodbye toes!" I think she has this one down pat!

With her teacher.

I really appreciate the professionalism of this Dance Academy. They really try to teach the students poise and good manners as well as the basics of ballet. And Abby loves it, too! I'm sure her reasons are different than mine, though.

Your daughter is adorable! All the girls look so cute in their dance clothes. My husband and I are praying about adopting in a few years. I currently have a 3 month old so it's not even a possibility for at least a year.
