Little girls who dance.

Perfect smudge job in the bathroom.

Girls get a bit nervous. Mouths are set, chin tight, performance is soon...

Watching other dancers before them.




I had so much fun. So did the other seven Smylies that came to watch. You underestimate the grin that will spread across your face when you see your tiny girls on stage with their eyes full of stars. Never to be forgotten.

until this very moment I had been thinking of encouraging Poppy into a martial arts type of sport but this is so feminine and girly I now am thinking "is 17 months too young to start dance class?"

I LOVE the foot work at the top. You are so blessed to have these girls.

So cute! I was forced to quit ballet when I was little because in our performance, I would turn and growl at the audience. Not surprising to those who know me. I'm glad you girls are enjoying dancing!! So much fun.

see, THIS is why little girls are so fun. Mariko's performance is this weekend. Can't wait. I'll probably cry through the whole thing:)
