ballet

Greta took her first ballet class since we've been home.  The class is preparing for a recital in June.  
Here's Greta with her mostly companion and dearest friend, Poppy.  






Poppy gets air!

Greta spreads her wings!


She has been growing her hair out especially for this recital; it is very important to her that she has a proper bun.  With a hair net and pins, she is going to look beautiful.

How exciting and what beautiful photos for keepsakes.
My daughter has only commenced ballet (two lessons so far), and loves it!

Whoooaaa! Is that grown up ballerina with the fabulous arch in her back in the picture above "Poppy gets air" our gorgeous Greta?! I'm sooooo impressed! When is the recital so I can prepare my exit from work?
P.S. I love her hair long!

I love going to Greta's class and will never forget last year's recital. Can't wait until June 12.

oh. bittersweet for me. this week Gigi announced that she wants to give up ballet, after 11 years. She has natural talent and dances like a dream. She has the world at her dancing feet and a supportive dancing mother too (me). I am hiding my profound sadness from her. After all, it is my heartache - but not hers... sigh.

I can tell from these pictures that Greta is so graceful. Beautiful. She is lovely.
