The girls around our house have a slight obsession with ballet lately. They are constantly twirling, spinning, and moving around in ways that appear to them to be the most graceful!

On top of that, Sophie has been begging us to put her in a ballet class. And we have tried, but who knew classes only registered in the fall. So she had to wait until we we were finally able to get her in a class. And she was thrilled!

These pictures are of her before her first class. Parents are't allowed to watch the actual classes ... but she looked so cute in her new leotard, tights, and shoes that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to capture her in that moment.

I was worried she might be disappointed when she found out that ballet isn't always what she has pictured in her mind, but she seemed to like her first class and had a great time. She showed us how she learned to skip with her knees really high and how to walk lightly instead of thudding like elephants!

Here is to beautiful, graceful, sweet ballerinas!

Hey guys! Found your blog from fb. Hope you don't mind.:) is she taking at clyties? I wish I had her in my class! Who is her teacher and when does she go? Obviously those last questions only apply if she is at clyties. Congrats on sweet lyla. I love the name!
