More Ballet Pictures

"Point to where you came from...."
"And spin!"
The butterflies emerge from their cocoon (Caroline is in the center)

Erin and Caroline flap their wings

Clapping when the teacher said they could keep the butterfly wings...


Boy were we RELIEVED when the ballet performance went off without a problem. Caroline had decided to skip a nap that day (I normally require it on ballet days just to have her in a better mood) so was running on pure adrenaline, making her prone to a meltdown. She was so nervous about what to do if she forgot what to be doing, but did so well that some of the other girls were looking at her to help them remember what to do!

The Ballet Recital!

My little ballerina!


Showing off their rhythm learning

Poise and balance. They had to balance the beanbag on their head while walking on tiptoe down a line on the floor, then make a nice finish. All the parents agreed it rather uncomfortably resembled sobriety field testing! But at least Caroline's beanbag didn't fall...

Easter Pics

Caroline loved coloring Easter eggs again - she thinks it is MAGIC to pull a white egg out of the cup and find it a different color!

This bright blue one is my favorite...

Caroline on St. Patrick's Day - she told her class that her panties even had green stripes on them! hahahaha

My new favorite picture - it's nice to be able to put her hair up and get it off her neck!

Picture Day at Montessori School - "I'm so glad you're at my class, Mom!"

Enjoying the warm weather at the park
