Lorelai had her first dance recital. She is attending a Christian dance studio, so the costumes are modest and they dance to Christian music. I am super pleased about that. I don't have to have the "the booty-shaking dancing isn't appropriate for our house" talk yet.

Lorelai and her friend Natalie go to class together. They both love it. Natalie is a great student. She follows directions. Smiles. Uses manners. It's so sweet. Lorelai? Well, she follows directions, when she wants to. Smiles, when she feels like it. Uses manners occasionally...after scowling at the teacher. But snow angels, kissing the mirror, hanging from the barre? Yeah, she's got those down PAT!

But obviously she learned something, because at her recital rehearsal she did the entire dance!!

However, at the recital....well....she got sidetracked by shiny objects. The shiny objects were her family and PEYTON!

You'll see in the video that Peyton is calling to Lorelai. When Lorelai finally realizes it's Peyton, she REALLY wants her teachers to listen to her that "PEYTON IS HERE!" I'm pretty shocked she didn't get out of her dance space to make someone listen.

Sorry about the shakiness. I didn't realize I was going to be laughing and crying that I would need a tripod.


I'll share some of her rehearsal later too.

What a sweet little ballerina you have!!! I saw the video on FB yesterday and it was so fun. I'm thinking I may need to enroll Disaster Danielle! Who could pass up the little tutus?

Literally, I laughed so hard I cried, for like a whole minute she kept pointing at you guys, til the one girl next to her practically pushed her to go because they were doing the circle dance. That was awesome, she does have the arms up V motion down pat it seems. So fun!!
