New Star on Ballet Horizon

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to Abigail's ballet class with her. She is only four years old, and she has only been to four lessons, but I already see greatness in her future. This calls for "Moo Moo in a Tutu," from Cow Parade (Las Vegas, 2002) to get to be the cow-of-the-day. At the end of the lesson, the teacher let all the little girls pick a costume and make up a dance for their classmates and visitors. It was wonderful fun. If you would like to see the beautiful dance Abby presented to her class, you can find it here.

That's Abigail standing on the left side of the picture. She was very excited when the teacher chose her to go first. Gina and William are watching while Amelia takes pictures. She may be only three, but she takes some great pictures.

Before we were allowed to go into Abigail's class, Amelia entertained us in an empty classroom down the hall. She says she wants to be in a ballet class when she is four.

Here I am back in 2003 at the Atlanta Cow Parade. Moo Moo in a Tutu was visiting from Las Vegas. I almost deleted the last picture because the flash showed in the mirror. Just in time I realized it looks as if Abby is holding a star. I decided to post this shot after all and call it "Reach For The Stars." Isn't that what we all want our children and grandchildren to do?

Little Abigail is such a pretty little thing. She already has grace and poise. If she likes dancing and stays in it she will be very, very good!

Awwwww...I'm so glad you didn't delete that photo! I love that reaching for the stars idea! That would make a great scrapbook page.
