Ready, Set, Dance

This fall, Sarah is taking her very first dance class. She started last week, and is absolutely LOVING it! She has class every Monday - they do tap and ballet. All the girls wear black leotards and pink tights... so cute! Sarah just loves putting on her dance clothes. In fact, it's hard to get her to change back into street clothes after class.

I like to peek in the window and see what she's learning. It's so good for her to get some time away from me and learn to follow directions from someone else. It's also really nice for Emma to be the "big sister," even if it is for only 45 minutes. And Sarah feels like she is special to get to go to dance all by her big self. Every week, as she's going into class she tells Emma, "You're not going to dance class, Emma - only Sarah!" She doesn't mean to taunt her, but it sure sounds like it.

Seriously... makes me melt

Here's a shot through the mirror (again... Sarah is the first kid right behind "Miss Nancy")

She is so cute Jenn! It amazes me how fast they grow up. I definitely think it is good for them to get some time away from mom so they can become a little more independent, which it looks like she already is! The park looks really fun too (last post).

How fun!! I need to get Courtney into something, but I think she's more of a sports type girl. She would probably love dance though too. Sarah is so cute in her outfit!!! I found your blog when I was searching blogs of people from Oklahoma =) Im always looking for other Moms like me, and with young kids like mine!--Amber

What an absolute doll! I can't believe that she is old enough for dance! I love a little girl in a leotard.

What a doll! I can't believe you have one old enough to be in dance class. So fun! Are you headed to Iowa anytime soon? What do you know about football in Iowa?
