Story told by: Lainey
I had my first dance recital tonight. I did such a great job (if I don’t mind saying so myself)!
I am one cute bumblebee.
I am fortunate to have a great crew of friends who came to support me!
My fellow bees. (This picture was taken at dress rehearsal last night. Getting a picture of us was similar to herding cats.)
Time to dance!
Mommy and Daddy got a couple of videos. The first one is from dress rehearsal night. I’m in the front row on the far left.
The second video is from the recital. I am in the second row on the far left. I was a little more nervous this time. The curtain opened and all of the people stunned me a little. Mommy and Daddy are really proud of me, though, for continuing to dance even though I was nervous!
You’ll notice my unhappy face right at the end of the video. I could handle tons of people watching me dance, but I wasn’t too thrilled with the curtain.
When I was done dancing, Kimmi had a beautiful flower for me.
And so did Daddy! I would have done this whole dancing thing a long time ago if I knew I would get flowers out of it!
After the rest of the groups danced, it was time for awards. Teacher Brooke had a trophy and a certificate to present to each dancer.
And I got more flowers from Kylie’s grandma. What a lucky night!
Thanks to Brooke for some great months of dancing! I can’t wait to start again in the fall!
Afterwards, we celebrated with frozen yogurt! Flowers AND frozen yogurt?! This may be the best night of my life.
Thanks so much to everyone who came to watch me dance. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of me!!
