First Day of Ballet

With fall soon approaching, I knew that I wanted to get Gracen in a couple of organized activities.  Though our days visiting parks and beaches and playgrounds will continue through the winter months, it’s nice to have more than just our usual play gyms, pools, and libraries to sneak away to when we want to escape the cold. When I came across Ballet with Billie, a parent and tot class held at our local community centre, I knew Gracen would love it.   Music, dancing, singing, and little friends…  It sounded perfect for our little lady.

So today, the first day of classes, we got her dressed in her little leggings, her brand new leotard, and the tutu she’d specially selected for the occasion. As I packed up our bag, she came to me with the handmade scarf she received for her birthday and said, “Mama, Grae Grae wear scarf. Windy day. Sooooo windy, Mama.”  I explained that it wasn’t really all that windy, but she desperately wanted to wear it, so out the door we went.

We arrived to the class and met several lovely mamas and babes right off the bat, the teacher was beyond fantastic with the little girls, and Grae really enjoyed herself {once we got passed the loud stomping part that left her feeling a little frightened and clingy}.  The best part? She left the class, star sticker on hand and first ever goldfish cracker in belly, asking when we’d be going back.
