Ballerina Girl


Back to school also means back to dance class for Abby. She LOVES ballet and tap so she's really excited!

A few weeks ago we had a special morning out and went to the dance store to get new ballet and tap shoes and some new dance outfits. She had outgrown everything from last year. Abby had so much fun trying on all the leotards and tutus. She twirled around the dressing room as she proclaimed each one "my very, very favorite!"

This outfit did end up being her true favorite so we had to bring it home with us. And if I would let her wear it every minute of every day then she certainly would.

Here, Abby demonstrates first position...



And, arabesque...


Here she is mid-twirl...


This, she tells me, is her "sassy pose."


Enough pictures for now - we're off to ballet class!
