Little Ballerina

Reagan has found her calling in life. We signed her up for ballet classes earlier this year. Ryan had done dance and then soccer and we figured Reagan was probably ready to do a class of some sort and thought the exercise would be good for her. We finally decided on ballet and she loves it. Mostly because you get a costume and you get to wear make-up. She is definitely in love with that part of it. Watching her in class is pretty funny. She stares at herself in the mirror, she listens very closely to her teacher and she can't wait til the end of class when Ms. Barbara brings out the flowy scarves that they get to dance with. I'm glad.
She just had her recital a couple weekends ago and I'm glad it's over. Recital week is EXHAUSTING! Practices, pictures, run through every day for a week....and just for a very small part in one dance. But again, Reagan was really happy putting on her costume and getting make-up put on. She wants to wear it EVERYDAY.
Ryan was so excited to see Reagan on Stage.

She was a frog in her recital.
I just love the pics Chris took.

So adorable! Your girls are so cute. I don't think I am a nice enough mom to endure all the practices. Hey will Chris come to all our kids graduations/recitals/performances/etc and take their pictures?? :) I want the lifetime photographer package! $25 right?

I love your girls! If I had a costume like that I'd wear it everyday, too.

I do have a costume like that. I limit myself to wearing it only 4 days of the week.

Nice pics Chris. I'm still waiting for your photoblog. I'm interested in seeing your architectural pics! Not that I don't like the pics of the girls.
