the recital

Kendall had her big dance recital just two hours after we got home from the beach a couple weeks ago.  I wasn't sure how it would go since the last time I took her to an activity (soccer practice) right after we got home from a big trip (New York), she broke down in tears because she was so tired from the week.  Well, thankfully, this time went very well.  She was so excited to get all dressed up in her costume and she did great up on stage.  They had their performance in the huge performing arts center uptown where a lot of the Broadway shows are performed.  This picture is from before the show:


Here's one as they were lining up for their performance (Kendall's on the far left):


And here we are after the show:



Berkeley can't wait to be a part of the action in the fall when SHE gets to be in dance class as well!  The whole time we were watching the performance (almost 2 hours of watching many different dance classes perform) she was mimicking their every move in her seat!

Woohoo! She looks adorable. I remember my one and only ballet recital when I was four. Winnie the Pooh bears were our props. Ahh...the memories.

Tell Kendall that I think she looks so great in her costume. I wish I could have been there to see her dance. I bet she was the best dancer of the bunch, and I know she was the cutest.

Here I am, commenting as promised! However, I can't see any pictures. Obviously the other commenters could see them but they're not showing up on my screen. I wonder why? I'd love to show Kendall's picture to Jillian because she just had her recital also.

mirien-- i'm not sure why the pictures aren't showing up for you. maybe blogger was having issues at the time you happened to look at them? try again. . .

if you still can't see them, let me know and i'll email them to you.

kendall looks so old! Even at a young age I am choosing the word old over big. Maybe I should say grown up. I don't know, she looks like she is maturing. So cute. I can't wait to see those cute girls. Three weeks!
