After her first recital, when she didn't get a trophy, Big Sis had a cow. After I explained that you needed to do ballet for 3 years in order to get a trophy, she committed right then and there for 2 more years of ballet. She also committed to growing her hair long so that she could fit it into a bun without a hairpiece.
Well, two recitals later, her class' costume has not required a bun...so all that growing-out is for naught. But they are still giving out the 3-year trophy! She is so excited about getting that tonight. And I am just wondering where she thinks she's going to display it. ugh.
I am so proud of her commitment and dedication. She was named Class Leader a few months back, which means the whole class follows her in the front. I made her a DVD of the number and she goes through it multiple times a week to make sure knows all the steps. Right now the sponge curlers are in, and we are going to go do one last cram session before the big night!
