This past Saturday was Paige's 1st big recital. She was super excited and did a great job. I love watching the girls get older. To be honest... I don't love recitals. I love watching my kids dance, but the other performances bore me. I mean unless they are messing up during the performance. Now that is funny. I do love watching the little once wave to their parents, blow kisses, count the steps REALLY loud (like Paige) or forget to leave the stage when they are done. That's what makes a good performance for me.
For example, Paige sings during her performance and then when the words stop She keeps singing. By the end she even has the other children convinced that they should be singing. I found it pretty amusing.
So Paige was pretty excited about getting to wear the makeup. Kelly loves it too, but it didn't seem as big of a deal as it did for PaigeMonster.
Nonnie and Poppy drove out for this special occasion. It was a short trip, but we will see them tomorrow when we go to Branson. It was nice that I got to spend Mother's Day with my Best Friend.
Kelly is the one with the blurry arm. She used to be so scared of performing. I never knew if she would even make it onto the stage. Even if she made it on the stage, I couldn't count on her dancing. It really has been nice watching her conquer her fears. Her first year in dance, she couldn't even get her picture taken because she was too scared of the man taking the picture. Now it's not a problem.
Paige is a natural. A Natural what I don't know.
You can not deny her cuteness. Neither can she.
Ain't she sweet. She's cute too, I was kind of disappointed with her costume though. It's cute, but there were some others that I liked more. Luckily we go to a reasonable priced dance studio so we didn't have to pay too much.
