Just in case you didn't notice the best detail, check their hands. They kept hugging each other all morning in anticipation. Their little world forever changed today. Ballet has been introduced on a much more personal level. They are in love. I am in love.
They will have a friend for life.
Too sweet for words.John and I were grinning so hard that our faces hurt. I couldn't look at him because we are notorious "cryers." We cry at everything. This, though, was WAY over the top. I literally felt my heart hurt with pride and ache at wonder of their smallness and innocence. This memory will be forever frozen in my heart and head.
We've wanted to get them in ballet for a while, but the cost is so expensive. This little camp was just for the morning and a great introduction to see if they would even like it. Oh my, are we in trouble.
This broke our hearts. I was telling my mother yesterday that Zellie will probably say most of her life, "Wait for me." She is always running after them saying that. She wanted so bad to go this morning. She even convinced me she was ready with black leotard, pink pants, and her pink cowboy boots. This hurt because I had set Lillie and Rose's clothes out and she obviously noticed the colors that were needed to attend the event. They had ballet slippers so she thought pink must be the obvious choice for shoe color attire. Oh, I would have let you go, but the ages were from 5-9.
Lillie is the first one out on the right. Rose is in the second group of girls on the right also.
Lillie is the third one in from the left and Rose is in blue at the very end. She is darling at the very end.
Rose enjoyed watching the older girls perform.
