I didn't any take pictures during the show, not because of any restrictions (there were flashing cameras the entire time), but because whenever the Girl was on the stage I started weeping copiously. Truly. During the number when she's up on pointe, I had myself worked up to one big heaving sob. I can't help it. I usually cry a little bit, but this year I was really pathetic. Proud mommy overload. She's just looks so grown up when she's dancing. She's a long way from this blurry five year old getting ready to leave for her first recital.
I did take pictures at Picture Day two weeks ago, pictures of her getting her picture taken. Here's her ballet costume.
And her jazz costume which I had to completely remake because it was entirely too big for her. Thank goodness it's black!
And here's the pointe costume along with Girl Who Thinks She Lives At My House #2.
