The kids' recital was Saturday - and they looked so beautiful. I had to put makeup on them so their faces wouldn't look all washed out on stage... I don't do a dramatic enough job to really make it work well onstage - but if the kids are going to continue to dance, then I'll have to learn. The song they danced to was Yellow Submarine, which the kids really didn't like very well... it just didn't grab them like the Charleston did for Kenzie last year.
I will have a video up later, probably tomorrow. Somehow, a circuit at the house tripped and my home computer doesn't work right now. I brought everything to Panera to download and edit the video on my laptop, but (STOOOPID STOOOPID STOOOPID!!!!!!) I forgot the 4 pin to 4 pin cable to connect the camcorder to the computer. I'm kicking myself as I say this... GRRRRRRR!!!!!! Otherwise, it would have been uploaded today.
But - I DO have pictures I took on that day before they danced. And as a proud mama - I think they look gorgeous! The little ladies are shining through. I am so proud that they are doing the things I didn't get a chance to. I don't want to live through them, but I do want them to do things that they are interested in. They get a chance to discover things I never did - I want them to know they have numerous opportunities available to them, and if they put for the effort, they can accomplish anything. Dance is a great way to teach them that.
