This past spring, Emma had the opportunity to take ballet lessons. It is amazing these days, how so many extra-curricular activities are available to children, and how tightly we can get roped into things, and how everything costs money. Evidently, all of her lessons were leading up to the program. So, then you have to buy a costume for the program. Then, the parents have to buy tickets (as well as any children that attend). Then you have to buy the program. They sell flowers, and refreshments, and you can purchase an "advertisement" in the program saying how wonderful your child is!!! I'm not saying these aren't wonderful things.... I'm just saying that we thought we were just signing up for ballet classes, we were not quite prepared for all that this entailed.
But at the end of the day, we had the experience, we are glad to be done, and Emma is indeed, a beautiful dancer. Very well suited for ballet.

Oh my, that is why I'm a little hesitant to sign Selah up for dance classes...
You know my grandmother, who lives near you, said she had gone to a dance recital on Sunday. I wonder if it was the same one?! Hee hee. :-)
