Katie's first Recital & Silkwood Manor progress

*Shameless mom brag ahead* Katie just finished her first recital today. She is in a Turn n' Tumble class at the Y which is half ballet and half gymnastics. She's been doing that class for about 6 months and seems to really enjoy it - especially the gymnastics. All the dance classes at the Y give a recital every June and they include the Turn n' Tumble class since they do ballet too. Katie's class was one of the youngest and they danced some very basic ballet moves to "A Whole New World" from Alladin - hence the Jasmine like outfit. All the little girls (ages 3 - 5) did really well - we were hoping just that they wouldn't all stand there and do nothing and luckily they didn't. I cannot say any of them is ready for a professional academy, but they did quite well for their age. There was one minor hiccup where the girls were suppposed to toe-walk around the stage and the little girl in front of Katie didn't realize that is what was happening and just stood there - Katie gave her a little shove to get her going and the audience just roared with laughter. I was pretty impressed though that they all even got there little ending pose right. *End of shameless mom brag* :)

I've been working on my Silkwood Manor and it is coming along pretty well - Since my last progress photo I did two flowers on each side of the border and worked on filling in the house. I'll finish filling in the house and do the two trees on either side next.

Aw, she's a cutie. That's hilarious that she gave the girl in front of her a little push to get her going. I bet you were just dying.
