I really love everything that Ballet teaches: following instructions, co-ordination, poise, self discipline, determination and self confidence and think its a wonderful after-school activity for both our girls.
So we arranged for them to start attending Ballet classes and see if it's something that they'll enjoy doing.
I've been wanting to put Mallorie in Ballet for a couple years, but I felt like her schedule was too packed with horse-back riding, gymnastics, and piano practice. But, she loves to perform and has such natural grace about her, I think this will be a really great fit for her. And Hayden too, even with her being a bit on the younger side, I think she will learn & benefit so much from doing Ballet. Here are a couple pictures I snapped of their first day of class.
I had THE biggest smile on my face, watching my sweet girls get such satisfaction from learning something new.
As I was looking through these pictures, I couldn't help but notice how grown up both Mallorie and Hayden look. My sweet little girls are getting so big! I am so grateful I get to capture these little milestones in their lives, motherhood is really the greatest thing in life, Isn't it? Hard as it is sometimes, there is really nothing quite as rewarding!
