Houston- we have a dancer

After 4 boys, years of football, and soccer, wrestling, calf riding, sheep riding, and all the things that go with 4 boys- I have a very girly girl that just started dance class! Jen and I bought our first leotards, and tap shoes, ballet slippers, and tutu. She is going to be in a recital and it is so fun.

Today was her second dance class- she is the youngest girl in the class and while she does not do everything the teacher asks of her, she does not participate like some of the other girls- she is loving it. Taya is painfully shy- only people in her close inner circle get to hear her talk and see her personality- so I was not sure if she would really do this dance thing- but she did. When class was over today she was upset- she wanted to dance more. It is fun to see her emerge from her shell ever so slowly- and Jen and I are learning about dance costumes, and tap shoes. Just wait until she is 16!

Checking her new ballet shoes- when she should be doing what the girl next to her is
Taya- doing her own thing...

Spending more time playing with her skirt then dancing

Busted taking her picture!
With her teacher and classmates


  1. I did the same class when I was 4 and 5 years old. I was the youngest in the class too. I loved it.

  2. I have never seen a more beautiful dancer. I am very lucky to have the two most beautiful girls. Honey, I am so glad that Taya looks like you, so beautiful.
