Yes, we’re doing it again this year. And it’s going to be just as cute as last year. Ro and Ree are equal parts excited and annoyed – they really like to dance, but they don’t love the long practices put in right before the recital. Oh well, can’t have everything, right?
Here’s a sneak preview of what the ballet portion of the dance recital will look like (Ree and Ro are in the ballet, tap, and finale numbers, so they’ll end up wearing three costumes). The team had dance pictures last night and I grabbed a few outside the studio as we were scurrying back to the car in full costume (since someone *coughcough* forgot to pack regular clothes).
Cuties. Hey it looks like they have learned a few moves. I wouldn’t know, since Saturday dance class is daddy time. It’s the one day a week he is almost guaranteed to be in town, and Ro and Ree really enjoy dance class and then lunch (or whatever else they can talk him into) with daddy afterwards. It seems like quite a few families do the same thing, TubaDad told me that last week one of the dads brought his daughters into the studio lobby, looked around at the room and said “Not a woman in sight. Nice job fellas.” Hee!
Oh, since all hair is hidden in ballet buns and the bracelets still haven’t been repaired, can you tell who’s who?
PS: Any tips on ballet buns? Gah, I am NOT good at making those things to begin with, plus the girls’ hair is so thin that the buns are miniscule and practically spit the bobby pins back out.
