Our Little Ballerina

Last weekend was Gia's dance recital. She worked hard to get to this point. We almost stopped dance lessons once our house sold and we moved 2 hours away, but she wanted to finish out the season, so we made it happen.
It wasn't easy driving back to Illinois week after week for the lessons, but it taught her some very valuable lessons.
Through this experience she learned that we are not quitters. She learned that we finish what we start. She also learned that hard work and dedication are important, even when it's not convenient. And almost as important as those things, she had FUN!
I had fun too. It's just so precious to watch all those little people up on the big stage, all dolled up with make-up, showing off their moves.

Here she is with her class before the show...

Aren't those costumes adorable. And that gaudy make-up...they told us to make it super bright so it would show while on stage, so we did!

They were all so cute and did a great job. We're proud of our little dancer.

She's a winner!
Congratulations little Gi Gi!
