Dancing Queen!

 This past Saturday morning was a special day at Ellison's dance class. All of the girls wore an Easter hat of some sort (something pretty and Springy). They also allowed parents in the room to watch a performance by the girls. Remembering that Ellison is only 3 years old, she is a sensitive girl who gets shy very easily! Well as soon as Connor and I entered the room she spent the first 5 minutes standing in place and sucking her thumb. Now every time we go to dance (we sit out in the waiting room with the other parents and watch the class on a TV screen) Ellison dances her heart out. She LOVES to dance. It honestly didn't surprise me that she sort of closed up when we were in the room (I totally did the same thing when I was younger). Eventually she did get into it and enjoyed showing off her skills...it was pretty cute to say the least and no matter what we were very proud parents of our precious dancing queen :)

 As mentioned she stood very still sucking her thumb for the first 5 minutes...
 She started to get into it during the partner dance
 Doing her kicks...
 Isn't she so sweet looking?
 Waiting her turn...
 I don't remember all of the correct ballet terms but this was her balancing...
 Marching in place!
Her sweet class :)
