Her performance was in Act II, so she was able to sit with us until intermission. She was absolutely entranced watching all the girls from itty bitty first years, tweens, teens and even adults perform their routines. Miss Jill wanted all the costumes to be covered until they went on stage, so A. wore one of Scott's shirts. We snapped a quick self-portrait before the lights went down for Act I.
Every year the little girls have a big sister to keep them company while they wait for their turn on stage. This year A. was over the moon to have her big girl friend, Kelsey, be her big sister. A. was almost more excited about that than the actual recital.
This was her third year in dance and believe it or not, there has been much growth and improvement since her first year as a tiny little thing in a tutu. Needless to say, we were bursting with pride for our sweet little Pinocchio!
