For the last couple months or so, Maddie has been asking (and asking and asking) if she can take a “bannerina” (ballerina) class. So I found a local place that had some summer sessions and signed her up. To say she was excited would be an understatement.
Here are a few pictures. The parents can only watch through a window that has a sheer curtain on it, so I apologize for the quality of the pictures. (She’s wearing a purple leotard in all the pictures.)
This dance studio has a nice play area for siblings during dance class. The first night we were there, Dannie played in it. Now she would prefer to sit next to me, watch Maddie and be silly.
After her first night of dance class, we came home to dinner on the table and Daddy brought a treat home. He brought ice cream and toppings. It wasn’t just her first day of dance, she also started a sports class the same day (which I will blog about soon), Chuck got her a treat for trying two new things that day. She was pretty excited!
Dannie was quite happy to enjoy Maddie’s treat, too. (And let’s be honest, I was the most excited of all when I saw Chuck got me Butterfinger ice cream!)
Maddie has continued to like dance class. She’s gone for three weeks and has one more class this session. Then two weeks off and another four weeks. If she is still interested, I’ll sign her up for fall. But we will play it by ear. As long as she is having fun and wants to go, I’ll keep signing her up. I think she would be just adorable all dolled up for a recital!!!
