I hope you DANCE...

I hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean. Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance and if you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I HOPE YOU DANCE!

Tonight was Emma's 1st night of Ballet and Tap and we were both super excited to see what was in store for our little Ballerina. Emma had a choice of what she wanted to participate in this year and she chose to give up gymnastics and pick up Dance and Soccer. She will actually be picking up 2 hours of gymnastics a week at her preschool from a gym that comes in on Tuesday and Friday to work with the kids.
When I got her ready for Ballet tonight and packed her little tap shoes in her bag my heart was filled with butterflies. I have always been super excited that God blessed me with a little girl, but tonight really had my heart going pitter patter and I thanked God out loud for filling my life with lots of PINK!

We visited a couple of different dance studios looking for the perfect place that would fit our schedules and our life. I knew when I walked in the one we chose and scriptures were covering the walls that we had found our dance home. I could not be happier with the way things went tonight and Emma was such a good little participator.
Getting acquainted with Mrs. Sharon, new friends and other little girls that love pink too.

All of the little girls in Emma's class were so supportive and so cute. It is going to be fun watching all of them and getting to know their Mommies.

I loved the fast paced class and how they require all of them to participate and do not accept no for an answer.

Hand in hand, Brook & Emma walked in class together for a little crown wearing & tutu sharing. I sure hope these two can stay friends forever. Brook got a little upset at the beginning of class but quickly got herself together and said, "I need to go back in there Mommy, Emma needs me." We love you Brook and we know you have had a tough week so we are very proud of you for becoming a beautiful little Ballerina tonight.

Emma, you looked so cute tonight and I loved watching you enter the world of dance. You have the sweetest little spirit and are so willing to turn strangers into friends and explore new things. Just so happens to be one of my favorite things about you. Continue to dance your little heart out like no one is watching.

Oh my word!! You KNOW this post made me so so happy! I wish I still lived in Texas so I could be Emma and Brook's ballet teacher...I hope the Lord blesses us with a baby that I can take to dance classes too (boy or girl)...although David would probably fight me tooth and nail...he he!

Thank you for the sweet sweet email yesterday. I am in lots of pain, but so thankful for the surgery and all the sweet emails, calls, and prayers!

Oh that is so sweet. I know you are over excited about Emma taking Dance. I have always wanted a little girl so that she will be able to take dance. She's only two and I am having to wait until she's three in order for her to start and it's about to kill me. Have Fun Emma!
