Blue-eyed Girl

Back in our crazy, busy May, Julie finished off her dance career with her Spring dance recital.  She did a tap routine to "Brown-Eyed Girl" as well as a dance with her daddy to "Men in Black" (do you sense the color theme?).

The week of the recital was very long with 2 dress rehearsals, Thursday and Friday nights, leading up to the recital on Saturday night.  The recital was at 7 PM and lasted about 3 hours.  Since everyone was in the finale, that meant my 6 year old (along with all of the little kids, some much younger) has to stay up until 10 to dance in that.  When we got home Julie told us that was the latest time she had ever seen on the clock.

Because of this, and many other reasons, we will not be doing dance next year.  It was fun while it lasted and I think she will have fond memories of her dance classes, but it's time to move on to other activities.  Luckily, I got tons of pictures of her looking adorable in her recital costume - for posterity...and the scrapbook :).

  1. That's too bad they scheduled it as they did. How frustrating. She is adorable though, what a cute costume!

  2. That really is too late for little ones, but I'm glad you have the photos and the memories from this year!
