Party Girl

My girl is growing up...last weekend was Sophie’s first ballet performance that was not just a mere 15 second toe tapping spin in a circle exercise. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade the hours and hours and hours of sitting through ballet recitals for her 15 seconds of glory for anything. I always am proud of my girl, but this was a whole different kind of deal. This was the Allen Civic Ballet’s Nutcracker and Sophie was one of the Party Girls. She was absolutely stunning (did you notice the hair) and did a wonderful job preforming her parts. As I watched the show I experienced a wow sort of moment and had to reconcile with myself that my girl is growing up.

Sophia is adorable. And, yes, growing up. That happens really fast, doesn't it? Watching always brings those "wow" moments as well as a special tug on your heart.

Uncle Herb and I took Pearl on Friday evening to see the Nutcracker and she loved it. A couple different times she asked if she could go dance with them. She is in her first year of ballet. Her pictures are on my FB profile.

Wow, Sophie! Did you like your costume?

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing. Sophie is a beautiful person anyway and looked ravishing at her performance. Every week is a new exposure to the wonderment of the Carel family. I am a big fan.

Have a wonderful day.
