The Ballerina

Anna has a love for ballet. She is now old enough to be in a class without mommies so I am not banished to the corner anymore (she never wanted me doing it with her). She lives for ballet class days. There are about 10 little girls in the class but Anna takes it the most seriously by far (maybe not in a good way either). She is always focused with her hand on her hips, patiently waits her turn, and listens to every instruction...however, she is often yelling at the other little girls or ordering them to be on their tip toes, to get back to their spots, to raise their arms when they turn. Maybe Anna has a calling to be in dance (or to be a drill sergeant). Either way it is a true joy to watch her thriving in something all her own.


  1. Mary, I just cannot get over how grown up she looks! It's amazing!

  2. I like that, either dancer or a drill sergeant, the possibilities are endless for her!

  3. She is adorable! It looks like she is SO much taller than when I saw her a year ago. I am glad she enjoys dance. I wish that I could dance!
