Summer is finally here. School is finally out. The oldest granddaughter just finished competing in the state soccer tournament and the grandson is playing in the semi-finals of the city little league baseball tournament. So what are the two middle granddaughters doing? Well , they're dancing. We stopped by dress rehearsal so that I could get a few good pictures. No photography is allowed during the actual performance. First up, the eleven-year-old.
Our girl is the one in the middle. She's going to be the artistic soul of the crew. She LOVES dance and will soon enroll in summer ballet classes. She's also decided to take piano lessons.
Rehearsal is over. She's changed her clothes and has a reflective moment while waiting for little sister to dance.
Once again, our girl is in the middle. Our family grows 'em tall. This one likes dance, but has decided she would rather play soccer if she has to choose between the two. If dance lessons and soccer practice happen on the same night this fall, she will be on the soccer field.
The final pose looks pretty good for a group of eight and nine-year-old girls. They actually did a very nice job and their rehearsal went very well.
You have to be on your toes (no pun intended) to catch this one in a quiet, pensive mood. That's it for dance rehearsal. Tomorrow we will watch the recital and then head to the diamond to watch baby brother play baseball. It's a busy family we have.
